    Not so lucky up here in Concrete (Skagit Valley). We're buried in the stuff.

    With the cold air rolling off Mount Baker and the North Cascades, it stays
    a bit colder here. Been living here for 16 years, and this is the most snow
    we're ever had.

    Here's a pic of the driveway I took late this afternoon. My truck is an '87
    4x4, and the tires are 32" tall.

    It's still snowing here, and now it's above the front bumper.

    Here's a shot of the house and the river:

    River looks beautiful, but I'd bet that waters damn cold! Name:  cold-1.jpg

    Making it all worse, my wife is in the hospital at UW since last Friday,
    and that's 120 miles away. Maybe coming home tomorrow (they
    transport her). Nothing overly serious, fortunately, but I have to shovel
    a path from the house to the road, as she can't walk in snow over a couple
    inches deep.

    ..and we're supposed to get more on Thurs. and Fri. Name:  GAAAHsmiley.gif

    Lots of snow in Mariposa county too, the area I was prospecting in is now completely underwater. I dug a two feet hole there that had lots of gold and when I went back to look at it last week it was just completely filled in now. Fortunately I put a tarp underneath there beforehand held down with rocks so I should be able to easily get back to it when the water levels drop again.

    Well, tuesday night that huge oak tree out in front of the RV decided it was time to become horizontal. At least 100 feet tall and 54 inches at the base. About a ten foot rootball and got lucky that only one branch penetrated the front of the RV. Another ten feet to the north and it would of cut this thing in half. I'll post some pictures tomorrow. Lots of fire wood tho'.

    The NF should get a good rise. Traffic was stopped over the hill this week due to snow and it is a warm storm passing through. Should be lots of melt and possibly 15-20k flows.

    Felt like I had that kind of flow under my house. 40 acres of 18" snow melt goes in on one side of the house and out the other side. My whole yard was under 3" of water last week. Today, it's snowing.
