Snow Road, part 2

After passing the idle snow removal equipment parked on the side of Lassen Peak Highway approximately five miles beyond the locked gate, I figured the end must be nigh. However, even when I reached the untouched wall of snow blocking the road, I didn’t let that stop me.

    I guess I spoke too soon when I commented on your Snow Road Part 1. Just after bragging about how my state was snow-free, there were snowflakes falling while I walked my dog. If it continues, God forbid, we’re going to look as frigid and snowy as California. How do 40 million of you people handle it? If I lived there, I’d consider moving to a milder climate–like Minnesota or The Yukon.

      Forecast predicts this weekend Lassen will receive 10 inches of snow. How many shivering Californians can you accommodate at your house?

    By the way, that first “end of the road” picture is fantastic.

    I love those ‘end of the road’ shots. They remind me a little of when I was growing up in upstate NY, we would occasionally get a really big snowstorm with lots of drifting. I can remember a couple times when the snowplows hit a snowdrift that was too big to handle, and they would just give up and back out. It would look just like that, with the road ending in a wall of white until they came back with front end loaders and dump trucks to clear the drift.

    Excellent photos and a beautiful ride.
    Guess who else is getting snow tomorrow and tomorrow night?
    Rumor has it the railroad is calling in the rotary plows from Donner Pass to handle it. 😉

      Send that equipment back to Californias as soon as possible, because more snow in the forecast at Donner this weekend.

    Great pictures again! I had a look at your journal from 2016 on that other site, too, and noticed how much better the presentation of photos is on your site.

      Thanks, Suzanne. While I won’t ever reach your level of excellence, I’ve put a little more effort into my photography over the last few years.

        Thanks, Bill. I didn’t mean your pictures weren’t as good then but that the crazy site didn’t do pictures justice – too small and low resolution I think. On your website the pics are much more impressive.

          Thanks! Unlike public websites with multiple people posting multiple journals, my little corner of the Web doesn’t need to accommodate a wide array of user preferences, quirks, and crazy notions. Just my own preferences, quirks, and crazy notions. 😉
