Remembering: It’s Not Always 100 Degrees Here


Join our large (and growing) community of food-lovers on Facebook. We are regularly inspired by members of this positive community. Come be inspired too.

We sit here in summer swelter just trying to remember that we once needed sweaters.

Pictured is the west side of the “Little House,” built originally as a servant’s quarters to serve the main house. My mom lives in this former-servant’s quarters now. Perhaps mentioning it in the context will get me into trouble. We will find out if Mom reads this website. Of course, I type all of this from a room that was a bedroom in a brothel.

It is hard to imagine the market for brothels when it is 100 degrees.

Late snow is a disaster for an orchard. Most of our trees survived, including this cherry.

No Electric, No Water

With all the downed trees, the area was without electric, which means no water in our case. Below is snow melting on the wood stove. All that snow melts into about two tablespoons of water.

Another Snow Casualty

As our limbs and trees were cracking in the late April snow, the Sheriff deputy was called to the local Hot Springs resort to examine a tree that was creaking and cracking right off the road. The offending tree would have fallen right into the county road, making it county business. As deputy Scott stood there examining the tree's health, a second tree fell directly on his truck.

April Snow

It is a rare April to see snow at all, much less 8 inches. The trees had leaved and buckled under the snow pack. Below is a tree on the ground that luckily slid down slowly away from the house. We had several other major limbs down. The lilacs below survived after I brushed the snow off.

To the northeast, we see the high Sierra behind tree limbs weighted down with snow. We cycle between "you cannot beat the view here" and "we must find a warm climate to live in."

Last Peek Until 2010

The road to the high country closes here when travelers start getting stuck in the snow. Last week on the first snow, we headed up knowing that it could well be our last glimpse of the Giant Sequoias for the season. Indeed. As we returned home, we noticed that the road was closed.

We would like to extend a special "thank you" to the two drivers apparently using their learner's permit, who got stuck on this road. But it was likely worth the $200 fine. It was gorgeous.
