Default Checking on Kent...

Thought I'd check and see if Kent is doing ok with all the snow in that part of the state. Some areas are getting multiple feet a day.

He's probably metalshaping a self-operating shovel that'll park itself when the walks are clean.

Anybody try to call?


My "lastest" information was His telephone/internet service is via a long cable running over ground. Heavy weather has interrupted his service now and then for short periods.


The snow may be so deep he cannot find/fix/replace.

Good to hear that all is ok with you guys. I knew you were up in the mountains some, but not exactly where. Weather guessers around here were talking that large areas of CA mountains were getting upwards of 10 feet of snow over a just a few days. Few people are equipped for that much white lumpy rain...

At least it looks like the drought has been broken or close to it. Stay warm and dry Kent.
