Sketchy Internet and Bad Weather

Apologies for the lack of recent updates in the past 10 days or so. We have, as has most of Southern California, been experiencing an unprecedented (according to who you ask) amount of rain, which in turn negatively affects our satellite-based internet connection. The rain spanned a solid 7-day period with out really letting up at all. It in fact intensified over the last few days of the storm, causing the road to go from not-too-bad-considering to a minor wreck pretty much overnight. It has been all hands on deck trying to take care of the road while it was still raining and then after in order to make it passable.

The good news is that the road is  indeed passable, as of now, even for regular cars, and we will be open on Sunday 26th for the regular Sunday morning proceedings. We are expecting more weather tomorrow and Sunday and the forecast is for a possible 1 to 3 inches of snow, which means we most likely won't plow it unless it reaches 3 inches or more (it doesn't really work trying to plow less than this amount). So Sunday might be best recommended for the adventurous in spirit, or at least those with snow chains or snow driving experience.
