Snow Day

Summer Snow

Maybe we swapped the swamp cooler and the firewood a few days too soon, as snow came back overnight. A late storm out of the Gulf of Alaska came through yesterday and last night, putting a few inches of snow in the Sierra (chain controls went back up for a while) and giving us high winds and rain in Fernley.

Snow didn't make it down to Fernley itself, but it got cold enough that we got one of the heaters out of storage. We've been on the verge of restarting the fireplace for the past two days. I've been holding off because once this storm blow through, the temps are supposed to shoot back up into the mid 30s°C, and I'd sort of like to have some capacity to absorb some of the that heat before we have to turn the swamp cooler back on later in the week.
