A Rarity: Snowboarding in Concow

Our phone line has a tree on it. No phone. No cell phone. Across the canyon in Paradise, 12,000 people don't have electricity. Trees are down everywhere. The Red Cross has opened a "warming center" in Paradise.

We are toasty warm here. Electricity working fine. Snug in our wood fire warmed home. And the satellite dish keeps the Internet available (our only means of contact to the outside world).

I counted 42 trees/big branches down along/beside/across our two mile gravel road. Takes a chain saw to get out of here. So, might as well make the best of it and GO SNOWBOARDING! This is a rare event at this home...

Can you say "climate change"?
