Winter Storm Warning !
I've said it before, I'll say it again: I just love that statement !
This time, however, we are talking the White Stuff, aka Snow, the stuff that dreams, skis and snowboards are made of/for.
In the photo below, retired LACo OLS Bill Powers, is getting an early start on the previous evening's (11.08) one foot plus snowfall in Mammoth Lakes, Calif. As Bill pointed out to the undersigned, it is crucial to get to clearing the snow before it "sets up". Apparently, once it warms up and the sun gets on it, forget about removing the snow/ice from the driveway. So here he was, the original mountain man that he now is, out there at 0800 hrs making a 'prevention' and saving his driveway and otherwise avoiding being set up...
And as we were exiting the property we could not help but notice (see below) that Bill is still doing laps to stay in shape.... and by all accounts he is at least on Lap 5 or 6 and it is not yet 0830 hrs.
Until next time...
