They say it was the snowiest January in 40 years. And, I guess "they" ought to know. I have put away the newspaper account with the exact amount, but I will update this when I find out. All I know is....it snowed before Christmas, about December 18th, 2007......and we have not seen the ground yet. Then it snowed good, a few feet, the week after Christmas. We left for Northern Nevada to visit on New Year's Eve. I understand it then snowed here the day after we left.......the week after we left........and the days we were supposed to be going back home, delaying our arrival by about two days. Upon our arrival home, about January 14th or so, it began to snow again.........and it snowed a lot......and then the first weekend of February came, and it snowed even more, actually cancelling the play Anne and Matthew were in at the college. Our very own Mount Shasta Ski Park had the most amount of snow at a ski resort in the nation, according to Ski Report dotcom . Our rivers and lakes will be so full this summer! Here are a few photo highlights from around Our Hearts' Haven........
The daytime view. Note the snow hanging overhead.
The next evening, the path is obliterated, yet again. See the overhang now!
it is hanging off about six feet...and the snow on the end of the garage is about 4 feet thick, and very heavy, as Matthew is about to find out!
