Nov 22 clean and full

With the help of Rush Sturges and crew we drained and cleaned the far pond and as of this morning it is finally full again. Squeaky clean, at least for a nano second. New web site went up yesterday and it is dumping snow at Bachelor and Mt Hood. Took this photo minutes ago after a night of rain. Thanks to Paul Johnson and Bob Ferguson for hours of modeling work for the new site! cheers p

Nov 19 snow up high

Snow on the mountain with a progressive weather pattern forecasted. Pretty dry Fall, really (5 inches of rain so far), although we still have good hydro and don't need to run the generator for power. They finally got the fiber optic in and you can see the cut they made in the road in the picture above. It has been a real pain for the last year or so but we are thrilled to have great internet capability. Otter Bar is dormant but stunning and Kristy and I just went down to Southern CA and visited her mother as well as Alli and the John Johns family in La Jolla. Major Thanksgiving bash ahead and then I plan to head out for points snow to find some skiing. New web site is finally done and should be up by tomorrow! Check it out and love to anyone who might be reading this!
