Eatin' somethin'...nibble nibble
So, this shot below is last night....many folks out in the meadow...including mom and dad and ME! And, you'll see why in a moment...it wasn't all fun and games this time...
Always gettin' a snow-bath from dad!
Here's the wierd part...the power house at Kirkwood caught on fire mid-day New Year's Day. Lifts shut down early, as there was no power and smoke smoke smoke filled the valley sky.
This is the power source for the entire area. It was a very bad fire. We stayed put, as the temperatures were lowering and the roads were very icy to drive anywhere. And, I was happy with my ball time.....
Shots from this morning. Still NO POWER to the area and a lot of generators being trucked in. I was happy to have more mom and dad and ball time...!!!
We're pretty self-contained with our rig. Here is dad a few friends hashing over the gravity of the situation this morning.
With no lifts running, and just a long line for a snow-cat ride up some of the slopes, mom, dad and I decided to do a sunny x-country ski around the meadow. We encountered lots of friendly folks and some cool looking snow pals!
Yea...found a stick too! All is ok. Power is slowly being restored to the village and area. We're happy to hang, and see what tomorrow brings.
Hugs to all my pals!!
