What's Happening Here

Well, let's see....  We have a train wreck, a two-day blizzard, and two trucks submerged in Canyon Ferry lake.  Just another day in Paradise!

17 cars derailed, with 14 cars completely turned over.  It happened at midnight Saturday and by midnight last night they were running again.  They had to replace a mile or two of track.  They probably worked fast to hurry up and get out of the cold!

And because of a two-week thaw, the ice on Canyon Ferry Lake was getting iffy, but a couple of folks decided to try it anyway,  One truck was recovered, one is still at the bottom of the lake, two people were rescued, and one is still missing.  The authorities have closed the lake to vehicles, Hubby and his brother are fishing near there, but they wouldn't dream of driving a pickup out on the ice now anyway.

The sun has finally come out, but it was a very frigid weekend.  The wind was blowing so hard you couldn't stand up and it brought the wind chill factor down to well below zero.  It was almost impossible to keep up with the shoveling.

But this week won't be quite so bad, hopefully.  Spring WILL come, even if it happens in July!


  1. Something tells me that you are going to enjoy every moment of your Mexican vacation!

  2. Oh my goodness!! That is some bad weather. I should feel guilty for living out here in CA but I don't. :op
    Have a great time in Mexico!


I'm so happy to hear from you! I do moderate the comments before they post just in case...
