Fire and Snow
|Hillside on Sunday|
|Hillside on Saturday|
We were incredibly productive on Saturday getting most of our property cleaned up and fire safe (raking all of the pine needles and picking up all the branches that dropped on the ground) and even burned almost all of the needles and branches that we raked. Thinking it wouldn't snow too much, we also drained all the gas from the snow blower (oops). Our picnic table also got a little too much snow on it during one of the last storms, the picture is pretty amazing.
Sunday, we woke up to about 10 inches of snow on the ground and by the time we left around 10:30 in the morning there was a foot of snow and it was still coming down. Once in Lodi we stopped at Rancho San Miguel Market to pick up a carnitas meal for lunch and headed back to my grandma's house. The plan was to watch an abbreviated opening leg of the Amgen Tour of California, unfortunately it was canceled.
Next weekend we will finish raking and burning (assuming all of the snow has melted) and then I'm off to San Francisco for a few days to help a client at Pow Wow.
