After Snow Storm Musings

Looks like we get a short reprieve from the storms until tomorrow. Lucky for me HM dropped by to help dig me out as I just don’t have the strength these days to keep up with things.

Snoop Sister Deb said she bonded with the snow plow driver because she was out shoveling so much yesterday.

The kids have another snow day and the only way up and down the mountain this morning is Highway 18 through Lucerne Valley.

There was an avalanche over on Arctic Circle yesterday and the snow was super heavy and coming down quickly.

Here in Fawnskin my homestead got over two feet of snow but I have not ventured out yet to see just how much is there…I am dreading the berm.

Over the weekend Fawnskin residents participated in the Snow Shoe the Bear event. Tim Wood (left), Jim Dooley (right–in his stunning hat), and the gals from Amangela’s (who served up early morning snacks) participated in the winter snow sports event.

Locals Ted and Heather Devito tooked the top awards for the “Fastest Bears” in the second annual Snowshoe the Bear 10K race. The 5K and 10K races drew roughly 180 competitors on Saturday, February 7th which turned out to be a perfect day for the event due to the fresh snowfall and clear, sunny skies.

Speaking of sports a new company has opened in the valley. Action Zipline Tours will open this summer and operate all year on the backside of the valley. The group will be hiring tour guides in April and is scheduled to open for operation in June 2009.
