Photo Sunday – Mother’s Day, 5/13/18

Happy Mother’s Day! This is a tribute to my mother, Joy Dan Pryor Jackson Riker Graves Mises (2 were fathers and 3 were husbands) 1929-2011. These are from her album, which she put together in high school. She graduated at 16, or in 1945.

I still miss her everyday. Honor thy mother – both in human form, and as the Earth Mother of us all – Mother Nature. Blessed be.


While CalTrans says the road is open this weekend, Mother Nature may have other plans

Here it comes, here it comes …


NOAA is expecting most of this to remain off shore, which would help keep the road open.

An inch of snow is is expected on my mountain tonight, most of you will just get rain. Rainfall is expected to be rather light, around .25-.50 of an inch, but up to an inch in coastal mountains. Temps are dropping rapidly after sunset, and I may sleep through the snow. Darn, I left my camera in the car, again! If worth reporting in the morning, my iPad has a camera and I will take a photo or two.

It may be that we luck out and rainfall will not be significant enough to cause troubles on the highway. BTW, went south today, and while I see a couple potential trouble spots – Mud Creek is moving and Alder Creek is oozing under the netting put up to protect the road, all-in-all, it is looking good. Maybe we are getting it all over with early in the slip and slide season? One can only hope, as March is typically our worse month.
