Snow and more snow…

We’ve added at least 8 inches of fresh snow to our little piece of the Redoubt since the weekend started.  We’d have more, but our little piece of heaven had an interlude of freezing rain and sleet during the middle of the night.  Weather reports ( is NOT as accurate as it could/should be for our little micro-climates) indicate we’ll be in and out of light snow/snow showers through perhaps Wednesday.  

For Patriots considering our AO – make sure you can afford a SxS or at least an ATV with tracks and a plow if you are planning to move ‘anywhere’ outside of town.  Even if you live ‘in-town’ – plan on those as minimums.  ATV/SxS with tires is acceptable – just know you’ll be limited from certain areas most of the winter.  4X4 vehicle is a no-brainer.  Even in town there are no-go zones with just a few inches of snow on the ground without 4X4.  Road crews never go to the pavement here – they allow the snow pack to remain, then add gravel. Only Main & the busiest side streets come even close to ‘clear’ during winter.  Schools actually closed today – the first weather-related closing of the season – and we’ve had a LOT of snow.

If you move here and you absolutely ‘must’ be able to get in and out of your place every day, buy a tractor when you get here.  You’ll spend as many hours plowing your 1/4 mile driveway as you spend at work.  You’ve been warned.

If any of the above sounds like a complaint – not.  It is beautiful, it is safe, and the AO is filled with good people – everything the Patriot should be seeking for our coming troubles.
