Snow Storm Break

Like most mountain lake resort residents, I spent two days snuggled in–which is a perfect time to get a lot of work done.

However, I did venture out onto the road ice with a neighbor as we headed out to Interlaken.

Only the brave dared to do so as it was cold and very slippery and she took her time to drive slowly and carefully.

I am always amazed at how fast people still drive in unsafe conditions but figure that is why the TCs (traffic collisions) and emergency room visits are good for the valley’s economy.

As most locals know, if you don’t like the weather, just wait a minute.

This weekend was no exception and on Sunday afternoon it was clear and sunny on the east side but stormy with dark clouds moving in on the west end.

As we headed back to Fawnskin, the lake was perfect backdrop for a spooky movie with wisps of low hanging fog clinging to the surface.

As expected, it wasn’t long before I began to get pelted again by small snow balls (not snow flakes).

For those who don’t live up here, I really am happy to see a sunny day since the sunshine will help melt the ice on many of the roads.

The timing of this last storm, and the one expected tomorrow, is perfect for the Thanksgiving holiday as it will attract a large number of visitors to the area.

With the break in the storms, the roads should be manageable without heavy restrictions or hours and hours of extra drive time.

But for now, take care as you meander today because it is super slick.

In addition to working this weekend, I took some time to make some persimmon bread.

I am still playing with the recipe but will post it when I am happy with it.

High altitude baking always requires a bit of tweaking.

BTW I noticed that someone was trying to start a “Treat Days” tradition over the Thanksgiving holiday week down at the Fawnskin Post Office.

The first I heard of it was the handwritten flyer on the door.

So, if you have any treats you want to share, take them down to the Post Office this week.
