Drove back from Mt Shasta last night and appearing in my rear view mirror was a solid white snow covered mountain, framed by a cloudless blue sky, and lit by a brilliant setting sun. After weeks of storms and clouds, seeing Mt Shasta like that reminds one of why we live here. Later that evening the Ski Park posted the news that the power was back on and they are open today. If you check their website, http://skipark.com/report.html , you can see what 12 feet of snow looks like in their web cams. If you check past images, you can see the sun rise on Mt Shasta. The actual www.shastacam.com is still down from the storm. But if you didn’t already know about Shasta cam, you might want to bookmark it anyway. When it is working, it lets you see the weather, sunrise, sunset, etc firsthand with just one click.
