Big Bear's Epic Snow Storm January 2010

On Friday the first storm came through Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland, leaving 3 feet of snow and virtually shutting down everything.

After the 2days of non-stop snow the road crews were starting to make some progress on the main roads. Still most everyone is still trying to get dug out and cleaned up.

Monday we hope to have power back to most all the customers, says one power company, but who knows, another storm is expected on Tuesday.

Yes that is right, yet another 5 inches or more is expected to come and cover all the hard work again. We will just wait it out.

I live at the bottom of a mountain on a secondary paved road, it is Sunday and we have not seen a state truck yet. My father gets in his diesel and hooks up his plow and clears our road the best he can.

This concern comes up due to the elderly and sick. For instance, during the storm a husband, wife and 2yr old son were at home with no power or heat. My father dug down to their house and moved them to their family members who had power.

This is just one of the examples of how the state has left us to fend for ourselves, so come together and help each other.
