The Winter Season is especially beautiful in the Sierra Mountains with so many activities and sights to see in our area.
As the daylight hours become less and it gets dark earlier, be aware that pedestrians are more likely walking after dark and harder to see. Check your home’s heating system for operation before you need it, and don’t forget to make sure your chimney is clean and flume is open before use.
The rain and snow have returned to the Ebbetts Pass Corridor and it’s time to reconsider winter driving. During the winter, make sure your car is prepared, and you are familiar with road conditions.
