MERRY CHRISTMAS - FRESH SNOW FROM THE 24th, SUNSHINE TODAY (so far anyway)

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU (Christmas Wreath)

If you’re driving up to Mi Wuk today, use extreme caution once you hit the snow level, around Twain Harte.  There were lots of ‘slip and slide’ accidents on Highway 108 yesterday, all the way up to Dodge Ridge (per Brian, our UPS man-in-brown).

Here are some photos from our excursion to Twain Harte yesterday morning.  You can call Russ and me c-r-a-z-y for going out at all when all news sources said to stay inside and off of the highways yesterday.  The snow began in the early morning hours and continued all day.

This was the 3rd snowplow in a row driving downhill.  Snowplow drivers earned their keep yesterday for sure.

It snowed most of Thursday which was beautiful–if you weren’t on the road.  And today:

Have a safe and wonderful Christmas weekend.
