Camp Connell, Ca -- Mar. 25, 2011 -- As of yesterday a neighbor had measured approximately 27 feet of snowfall this winter. And it is still snowing.
Our average, we think, is around 15 feet, so this has been an unusual year.
Long-time locals recall a similar winter in the 1970s, or maybe early 1980s.
Several neighbors have found they have urgent business down the hill, usually in the Bay Area with family or friends. After a certain point snow just becomes, well, snow.
The snow plow operators are worn out, and deserve a break.
I admit I am ready for a real Spring, not one on the calendar only.
But it is still pretty.
The video is very amateurish, shot with my little Flip Video camera. The editing -- such as it is -- is all my fault.
I do hope you notice the music. It was as appropriate as I could find.
Come see us.
Bring a shovel.
