Signs Of Spring... With our recent warm weather and rains, the sings of Spring are all around us... From budding of trees to the blooming of Pasque flowers, the mountain is awakening from it's winter sleep... This show of Spring is early in the season and is a concern for valley farmers, primarily because of the threat of a freeze stunting peach, and other crops...

Rains Bring Relief To Area... The combination of two weather systems moving through our area over the past few days, has brought much needed relief in the form of rain and snow... Should the weather patterns stay moist, a predicted extreme fire season could possibly be subdued and postponed... This would be welcomed by both residents and local authorities, but is not likely...
