New Year Begins with Rain, Wind, Snow… And Beauty

The winds were raging Friday when many of us were returning from holiday travel. On Sunday the clouds swallowed up the mountains again, reducing visibility to flat white slates of cold sky. Midday on Monday, after six inches of snow, the world glistened white.

Melt turned snow into long icicles hanging like jagged glass teeth off of every horizontal surface, including power lines. Flash flood warnings were read on bulletin boards at the market and Post Office in Frazier Park, but Tecuya Ridge (damaged by the Scott fire) held steady. No flooding was reported.
