Fawnskin Under Snow

Above: The Road To My Neighbor’s House This AM

So, how about this snow? Local merchants are likely to be doing the happy dance while we continue to attempt to dig out.

Locally the streets have been impassable due to the intense snow fall and delay in plowing.

Many locals are parking in town and hiking in. Those that were not so savvy got stuck in the middle of the roads and had to rely on neighbors to help get them out.

Yesterday I joined a couple of neighbors to dig out a neighbor who needed to go down the hill for medical reasons.

We shared hot cocoa and soup–nothing like a good job done!

The birds are loving me since I filled the feeders and clear them so they can eat. It is a bird party at my house.

Below are a few snaps of the local area.

The snow at my house is thigh deep and the berm is chest level–ugh.

It is important to chain up and be prepared for long delays. (Warm blankets, snacks, drinks, full gas tanks.)

One truck took 17 hours to get up to Big Bear due to delays and accidents on the roads.

    @Betsy Thanks for stopping by. We go down to the desert a lot. Rain can be good–just not all at once!
    @Shadow’s Mom I am not sore but I sure am tired from shoveling. Tank’s dad asked me to help him but I declined!

    Fun to read about and actually see the gorgeous snow. We were sweltering in Fiji during that storm, but the ocean was amazingly warm and the bright blue starfish were a treat to see. Will send you a pic or 2 from Fiji. Happy 2009!
