Tuesday January 10, 2023 Guerneville CA.
It started raining around three this morning until about noon today when it let up and the sun tried to poke out a bit.
Still no power so we did the generator chores, gas and oil. The last report said we’d have poser back by 10PM on Wednesday, tomorrow.
Once the rain let up, I didn’t want to spend the day in the house so I gassed up the dirt bike.
Patsy wants to know
A commenter wants to know what I mean by ditching the roads. Ditching is where you take a shovel and run shallow ditches across the roads, to the side of the roads, to drain any water that was running down the roads. You do this often along the roads to keep the water from building up on the road and causing big ruts that can wash things out. As water runs down a dirt road, the volume increases and can do a lot of damage when it runs down a road. The idea is to not collect water, but to dissipate it off the road so there is no road damage.
Eggs for apple cider
A neighbor, Fred came by and wanted to trade a dozen eggs for a quart of pure apple cider he made last summer. I, luckily had a few eggs ahead so I said sure as his apple cider is real good.
Checking out the forest
You can see some flood water sitting in Korbel’s vineyard, but the town escaped flooding, so far, as the storms have been coming in with some time between each one. So far, things haven’t been as bad as the experts predicted, fortunately, for those people living down there.
Checking out trails
Good rest spot
That trail looked good, but I noticed it was starting to get dark and it wasn’t from the clouds. I checked my watch and it was ten to five so I better get on home.
From there I hurried on home and went over to help my brother Tom do some ditch digging until just after dark.
