Despite being in the middle of packing, purging and prepping our beloved Mi Wuk home for sale later this year, Russ and I took our annual Sonora pass trek, checking out several things: the snow depth at the top and the destruction rendered by the Donnell Fire that started on August 1, 2018. The latter took my breath away. 🙁
I knew that thunderstorms were in the forecast so we watched, with interest, as the blue skies, full of ‘cumulus puffies’, turned darker and grayer and blacker throughout the midday.
Below is the thunder and rain storm that caught us just before Beardsley on the down hill run home. There wasn’t even a drop of rain in Mi Wuk. Or Strawberry. Mountain storms!
And that, my friends and neighbors, is the story of our quick trip to Sonora Pass just after opening day 2019. We do love that drive.
My husband Russ and I have been full time Mi Wuk residents since 2003 and part time residents since 1987.
Reality says that it's time to move on though and we'll be moving to Boise, Idaho at the end of 2019.
I've been on the MAHA board for 'a long time' and am happy to be there so I can know what's going on in our community.
I've also been on the MWSP Fire Protection District Fire Board since 2016 (or was it 2015?). You can always reach me at email@example.com .
