I awoke this morning to having the power go out for the third time this winter. Not only that, but as I looked out my window, there was three feet of snow. Within the next hour, it was about 4 inches over the top of the handrail. Now I don’t have a wood stove so there is no way to heat my house when the power goes out. So needless to say, it was starting to get cold.
The best thing to do when this happens is to get out of there and go somewhere else. I thought I could work at my new office located in the Holbrooke Hotel in Grass Valley, but guess what? Power was out in Nevada City, the Brunswick Area and Grass Valley. So much for working today.
I’ve taken a bunch of pictures of my trip from my house in Cascade Shores to Grass Valley. On the trip down the hill (I’m at the 3,700 foot elevation) there were power lines and trees down again as in the last snow storm. There was even a power line down on S. Auburn Street in Grass Valley where a tree came down and took the line down from a power pole to a house across the street.
Hopefully the power will come back sooner than the 4-5 days it took PG&E to restore power in the last snow storm.
