    TONIGHT's THE NIGHT: ANNIE AND THE BANG BANG
    Guys, this band is a rockin' good time and we have a feeling they'll start getting too big to play the Mercky.
    We've convinced them to come back from Minneapolis and play for us again this summer.
    Chef Liberty is traveling from Denver to make A Teryaki Chicken Hawaiian BBQ on the grill for the event.
    It will be a night of fabulous food and great rocking tunes.

    Dan W , We have 2 youth life vests here , up to 90 lbs. coast guard certified.
    you can borrow ! I may attempt to email you, but if it does not work,

    Howdy neighbors, Does anyone have a hanging flower basket we could borrow tomorrow by 10 am.

    Rose, do you drive and have a car?

    they were pretty desperate, just wondering if you drive
    in case this ever happens again. Thanks!

    Just to tag team Sal's post- I've known Nana for 20 years and she is the most amazing and intuitive dog trainer I've known. A suitable dog needs to be medium sized or larger, healthy and social with dogs and people.

    The dog would be trained using only positive methods and would be a hero in a wonderful, loving home with Dale.

    From our dear dog trainer friend-Nana


    Hey Sal,
    In urgent need of a suitable 1-2 year old dog to train as a service dog for my friend Dale who lost her service dog suddenly and unexpectedly to hemangiosarcoma cancer.

    She has had service dogs for 32 years and it is really difficult for her not to have a service dog - her independence and her service dog are one in the same. Hence the urgent need to get a suitable dog asap so Dale can regain her independence sooner than later.

    There is a suitable dog somewhere out there just waiting for Dale, it just a matter of making the connection. Please spread the word to help us make that connection!

    I just put a website together so people can get more detailed info and a better understanding of our situation: servicedog4dale.wordpress.com

    If you would please reach out and spread the word to help make that connection we would appreciate it : )

    Thanks,
    Nana

    This week at the Merc is another great one!

    THURSDAY: Nathan Rivera & Jessie Andra Smith - Trilingual female and male vocals, resonator guitars, accordion, upright bass, clarinet, and more combine for a unique sound.A high level of musicianship, fun travel stories, an invitation for audience participation, song and dance, jazz improvisation and the spirit of New Orleans combine for fun and uplifting shows. And to perfectly compliment the music, Jen Anderson is making shrimp étouffée with all the Louisiana fixins'! Music is 8-10pm and dinner starts at 6:30!

    FRIDAY: Steven Hoffman is playing folk and acoustic rock for pizza night! PIZZA PIZZA PIZZA! 6-8pm!

    SATURDAY: Annie and the Bang Bang came to us last year from Minnesota and BOY did we have a great time! They ROCK and we're so lucky they're coming back to play the merc again! The band values energy, theatricality, animal intelligence, beautiful mischief that holds some truth, and the mild perversion of being totally frank. They're grunge meets late 60s dark rock, if you must know, with something heavier thrown in, like a chocolate anvil. Come on out for music from 8-10pm. And guest chef Liberty McCarty will be making dinner starting at 6:30.

    Hello everyone,
    I am looking for any type of outdoor work. Preferably manual labor. I am willing to do pretty much any yard work and or fire medication. I am pretty good with a chainsaw the only thing with that is that I'm not very experienced at felling trees. So if there is any trees that are very near buildings or things that a falling tree could cause serious damage to I might turn down the assignment. But if it is a medium sized tree with not much near it I'm pretty comfortable. I am trying to get away from this really uninspired desk job that I'm currently working at, so I will be able to take on quite a bit of work. The only Days I probably can't work are Tuesday's, Wednesday's and a select few Saturday's. Other wise most of the time I'm trying to get out of the house as MUCH as I can anyway. As most of you know I'm also on the lefthand fire department so there is a small chance that I will get deployed. In that case I will be gone for upwards of 18 days, but that is not likely. My phone number is 303-667-2375, and my email is henrymans8222@gmail.com. Contact me with any work you might need and or contact people you might know that don't check the QT often but are looking for someone to work for them. I generally work for 15 dollars and hour. For specialized things like felling trees and most chainsaw work and wood work I charge $20. I normally will take on most type of work, so even if your not sure it is something I would do or want to do still give me a shout because I almost garentee its better than the job I'm doing now. Thank you all so much!!
    Sincerely

    We might be interested in getting a roll off dumpster if some other neighbors are interested in going in on one with us.

    Otherwise, it will be hauling several loads of stuff to the dump, and our pickup truck is broken, the trailer by the road, has a flat tire, and needs a trailer tag. If anyone has a trailer we could borrow, that might work too.
    Bear with us until we are able to move all the trash and junk!

    Nice otter pic. , Andrew! there have been no bears over here lately. The one that did visit was not very big. Save the Bears!

    July 4th is rapidly approaching and we are in for a REAL musical TREAT!!!

    The band that Tom Williams has been playing with for 2 years is FINALLY coming to Jamestown! The Remus Tucker Band will be here to delight us with their tight original southern rock tunes and unique cover songs. Check them out at www.remustucker.com You will not want to miss this show during the 6-7 p.m. time slot on the 4th!

    The rest of the incredible line-up will be unleashed soon, I'm sure, but I just wanted you to know about this rare treat. Special thanks to Rainbow for organizing the spectacular music we are about to enjoy on July 4th!

    In other news...THE KAZOOS ARE HERE! Plan to meet at the Jimtown post office at 11:30 a.m. on July 4th if you'd like to make some silly music with the kazoo band in what I like to call "The World's Goofiest Parade." Anyone can join us humming simple songs we all know! Bring your own or grab one there!

    Happy Father's Day!!

    Last night was the second night in a row that a dog was barking throughout the night. It's disruptive and I also worry about the dog. If this is your dog, could you please bring it in at night? Or fulfill whatever needs it's requesting by barking all night?

    It's the time of year that sleeping with the windows open is the best!

    The week of June 19 to June 23 will look a lot like what was seen this week in James Canyon.

    Kelley crews will continue installing cross culverts underneath the roadway and this work will progress uphill towards Jamestown. Flaggers will be used to move people safely around the construction zone as quickly as possible. Delay times will vary, but are unlikely to exceed 10-minutes. Waits will more likely be in the range of 3 to 5 minutes.
     
    Stream restoration activities will continue closer to the Lefthand intersection. This work will require short delays when trucks and equipment are entering and exiting the roadway.
    Kelley may begin installation of a large box culvert the week of June 26. I should know more about this work next week, but you may see them begin building a shoofly that travelers will use to move around this work zone. Shoofly creation and box culvert installation will require a lot of work, so you may begin seeing an uptick in the amount of machinery and trucks moving through the canyon. I'll provide more information as it is known.

    I'd like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as work starts to ramp up. I was informed about some incidents earlier this week and I have been assured that they have been addressed by the contractor and their subcontractors. Wrinkles should be ironed-out as work becomes more routine, but please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. If you tried to contact me earlier this week and I didn't get back to you, I apologize. I was out of the office thanks to shoulder surgery. Rough start to the week, but getting stronger every day.

    Have a good day and a great weekend.

    I have had great success (so far) using the panic button on my automatic car door opener. I park my SUV in an appropriate place on my property and sleep with the door opener under my pillow. And I use it! Only used twice, on two different bears, in three years. Consider giving it a try. My alarm automatically shuts off after about 15 - 20 sec. and my neighbor is also alerted.

    Still need lots of hands/shovels for Friday and Saturday's wood chip installation at the Elysian Park playground. If you think you can make it, please shoot Erika an email (erika.archer@jamestownco.org) so we know who we have. The biggest hole in the volunteer chain right now is Friday between noon and 4. If you can spare a shovel and some time for even just a couple of wheelbarrows full, it would be SO helpful! A quick shout-out of thanks for the volunteers who have signed up so far: Wendy, Tim, Kathleen, Vic, Martine, Patrick, Laura & Elise, Cal, Steve, Erika, Kristi - LOTS more help needed. Each dumptruck yields 45 wheelbarrows full - and we've got 4 deliveries expected. Go Jamestown do-it-ourselves moxie!

    Echoing what Jeff said: We've have one problem with a bear in 13 years, and it was totally my own fault. Now that this bear has found food in cars, you can bet he will be back every night. I highly suggest everyone clean and vacuum out your car TODAY, and spread the word to all of your neighbors to do the same.

    Walk around your property today and check for attractants. Secure all ground level windows and doors every night, secure trash and recycling as well. Take down bird feeders! Put out deterrents- ammonia soaked rags and unwelcome mats. If you see a bear, make a lot of noise, let dogs bark, safely haze the bear from a distance. There is a ton of information online about deterring bears.

    Since the bear has now gotten food, there is a 100% chance that he will be back. If people can post a description of the bear, it will help to know whether there is one problem bear or more than one. If the Bar-K association has an email list, now would be a good time to send an email blast out to the entire Bar K community.

    Each individual in the community needs to take responsibility ASAP to stop this. Bears are not relocated- if a problem bear is reported to CPW, the bear will be trapped and killed. Please do your part to save our bears.

    Art at the Center Opening Reception and Demos

    Nederland Community Center hosts the Opening Reception for the new show featuring eighteen artists this Thursday, June 15. Pick up a brush and learn to paint figures in watercolor with Nancy Sullo (free instruction & materials). Or watch Marilyn Pinaud and Bruce Miller paint with no brushes. Meet the artists whose works grace the walls of the center and fill it with life and color. Or just socialize with a glass of wine and delicious appetizers. This event is one of the classiest events in Nederland and we promise you will meet wonderful friends here!
    A requested contribution of $5 provides two beverage tickets. Reservations are not required. Come at 4:30 to allow time to participate in the watercolor demo, visit with dozens of friends and neighbors, and vote for your favorite art by 6:30pm. The event closes at 7:00pm.

    More bear thoughts:

    Cyndi & Gary: Thanks for the heads up about the raccoon. I suspect our garage visitor was a raccoon and not a bear. He was much neater and less smelly!

    Jeff: Please be careful with bags of ammonia. When they burst, they can blind or seriously harm the bear or other animals. I've had good luck with spraying some strong smelling pine sol around areas that might be visited instead or using bear mats with the heads of finishing nails pointing up, not the points. Whenever possible, I'd like to discourage the bear without harming him or her.

    Whether to keep a car open or locked is a good question. Bears can do a lot of damage inside and out.

    In all of the years that we've lived here, we only had bear trouble once about two or three years ago when the weather caused a reduced food supply. The bear was desperate enough to eat used cat litter. Any idea why bear trouble this year in what seems like prime food season?

    Are speakers/radios working for folks trying them? So glad for the qt communication but I'd love to be able to view a map of confirmed visits with times. Maybe the bear has a regular route that we could interrupt...

    Thanks neighbors!

    Please keep in mind, there will most likely be no relocation. Calls to wildlife control will most likely end up with another bear being killed. There are good resources on http://www.jamestownspeaks.org/bears/ (and the site Denise just sent) for how to deter and haze bears. We've had this conversation for years. Once a bear starts coming around your place, it's going to take some real work to change their minds....they don't just "go away"

    In 17 years here we've had only a couple of visits. They were ALL our fault: we left out the hummingbird feeders, or there was some food or wrapper or crumb or something in the car that attracted them. In those cases we immediately changed our behaviors: I stopped feeding hummingbirds for a couple of years, we got better at emptying and cleaning the cars, we don't mess around with composting, we taped bags of ammonia to the car door handles, stinky trash goes in the freezer until trash day, and we armed ourselves with boat horns, flashlights and bear spray. But once we stopped attracting them, we stopped seeing them. I've always figured part of the reason is encouraging small boys to pee at will outside...if ammonia is a deterrent, pee is too :)

    Do I like the fact that I have to go to sleep at night only after barricading myself inside and making a sweep outside to ensure I've left no bear bait? No, but I'll do what i need to to Save Our Bears.

    Hello Everyone! I'm very excited to announce that we have set the date for this year's Java Jam event! The event will be held in the "small park" on August 26th. This year JAM has decided to incorporate a crafters element to the event. I'm writing now to encourage all local artists/crafters to participate in this event! All you have to do is purchase a table for the day and you keep all the proceeds that you make from selling your wears (1-table approx. 7’x 30” = $25.00, ½ table = $15). The crafter portion of the day will be from 10am-5pm. If you are interested in joining us please let me know! You can e-mail me for more information at kathryn.white73@gmail.com! I can not wait to see what you've created and continue the artist energy in our community! (Also before this event don't forget about Fourth of July in Jamestown! This incredible event also has opportunities to set up a booth for your art - If interested please contact Jaye Brotherton, or sign up sheets are at the Merc). Thank you!

    Abrie, my advice is not to lock your car. A bear may rip your door off if it can't get in. On the other hand, it can go in and get trapped and total your car that way. The best thing is just not to ever leave any trace of food in your car. That way if they open the door to check, there's nothing to draw them in. If there is food in your car, locking your doors will not stop bears. Also, parking in a spot that is level or on the slope that prevents your car doors from closing by themselves can help.

    The bear is cute but good at opening doors too. Tried to get in our house via low level window but dog scared it off. Clearly it was successful at getting to the dog food in my car. Aside from keeping cars locked any ideas? It appears to have gotten in the cars again last night but did not do any (more) damage. Any plans out there to try to relocate this guy?

    Bears are out and about. Close those ground floor windows! I just had a bear come in my bedroom window. Thankfully Jos and I were sleeping upstairs and I just heard a bunch of banging around. It seems to have scared itself knocking down the lamp and gone back out but it could have wreaked havoc and been a very nasty surprise if I'd been sleeping in my bed.

    There has been a bear here , a couple times in the middle of the night, broke into the dog yard, took down some fencing, ate the dopg food and then took a crap on the deck. The dogs treed it after that.

    Lulu, we could use the cat litter! if someone has not claimed it yet.

    We could also take that washing machine, from whoever posted that. Ours has been ripping up all our clothes for some reason.

    We fixed the fencing,sort of, we are really busy, so if somehow our dogs escape, hopefully they will not get shot. they may be difficult to catch. They are big and semi feral,they do not listen well...or come when called when they want to run. They like kids, and are not really dangerous, have never bitten people. hopefully the fence holds as long as the bear does not get it down again while we are not home.

    I wanted to give a shout out for the Screamin' J's who are going to be at the Merc tomorrow evening. These guys are so fun. If you were lucky enough to see them at an Open Jovan last summer you'll know what a good show these 3 travelling minstrels put on. It's great boogie music with a standup bass, a sweet drummer, and a guy that plays the piano like you wouldn't believe. Here's a fun video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNw47tWqhVY

    The J's are here all the way from North Carolina and had such a good time at the Merc last year that they've put us on their schedule this year. They're such a treat to enjoy and it would be so awesome to give them a great Jamestown welcome. This is a perfect way to start the week, I promise!

    In the 17 years I've lived up here, this is the first raccoon I've seen. Weird, huh?

    PS - Bear deterrent fun fact: Pepper spray used as a deterrent on items to keep bears away...actually attracts them as it turns sweeter the longer it sits on a surface. (mmmmm pepper spray) Learned that one from the Save Our Bears group down in Jamestown. They have a wealth of knowledge about keeping the bears safe and in their own habitats. Great group. Maybe we need a Bar K chapter?

Her name is Saka, she weighs about 15 pounds. She was nervous, and hungry. We have called and texted the number on her tag on her collar with no response. The voice message sounds like the owners name is Lydia. Does anyone know Saka or her owner? She is very happy and comfortable here.

This work will require single-lane closures between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Flaggers will be used to move travelers safely around the work zone, so expect delays. Asphalt will be removed from both sides of the road in order to install the new culvert, so please use caution when traveling through this area. KTI will do their best to keep delays as short as possible, but they could range up to 15-minutes (infrequently) depending on the work being completed. KTI plans to continue installing cross-culverts under James Canyon Drive in the coming weeks, so expect delays as operations proceed uphill towards Jamestown. I'll provide more information on locations and delay times as soon as it is known.

    In addition to the road work, stream work will commence around the same location as the road work and will proceed west towards Jamestown. Expect delays when vehicles and equipment are entering and exiting the roadway from the stream area. These delays should be short and infrequent.

    Please allow yourself more time to safely arrive at your destination during working hours (7 a.m. to 6 p.m. – Monday through Friday).
    Let me know if you have questions, comments, or concerns.
    Have a good day.

    It appears that the same moose that attacked the women on Friday were at my house yesterday. We are just a couple of roads down from where the attack took place and this picture was taken around 3:00 p.m. yesterday from our second story deck. I have never seen such small baby moose. Sorry the photo is not great; it was taken with my phone.

    From Boulder County:

    Hello -

    You can expect short delays below mile marker 1 between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. tomorrow while KTI works to remove an old bridge from the creek. Other than that, things will be fairly calm the rest of this week and into next week as crews are still working on surveying the land in advance of major construction activities. KTI believes longer delays will begin the week of June 12 when they start removing asphalt from phase 1 work areas near the Lefthand intersection.

    I'll let you know if anything changes.

    Have a good day.

    We have the Rocky Mountain wood tick and the Brown dog tick here. These ticks can cause tick paralysis in dogs and carry Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, but they do not carry lyme disease (ticks that carry lyme disease are Ixodes spp). Ticks seem to be prevalent in areas that have had fires in the last 10-15 years, and Blue Jay Mine area seems to be bad this year. Ticks can also cause a local reaction that usually looks like an icky scab and is usually self limiting but occasionally needs antibiotics (often from dogs licking and chewing that area incessantly).

    If you are using an essential oil tick repellent, concentrate on areas of the dog like groin, armpits and ears and reapply often. Check these areas for ticks after hiking. If traveling to areas where the lyme and ehrlichia -carrying ticks are prevalent (northeast, midwest, northwest) you should put dogs on flea/tick prevention- topicals like Frontline or Advantix, or the newer chewables such as Bravecto, Simparica, or Nexgard. There is also a vaccine for lyme that should be considered if dogs are traveling to prevalent areas. Lyme is usually pretty simple to treat in dogs, but in people is a very big deal and can be difficult to diagnose and treat, so this is a big consideration in deciding whether to put dogs on prevention, especially if you have kids.

    If you pick ticks off your dog, use tweezers or gloves and get it right at the base by the skin. There is often a small lump at the site that causes distress to people who worry that the tick head is still in there. This actually is pretty rare, and the lump is caused by a reaction to tick saliva. Doing things like trying to burn the tick with a matchstick to get it to "let go" are really unnecessary and risks burning the dog.

    If you have removed tick(s)recently and your dog is acting unwell (lethargy, decreased appetite, etc) have him evaluated by a vet asap. RMSF is not super common, but it does happen and can be quite serious. Any dog with a temp >103 should be seen quickly.

    Ok, that's my tick spiel!

If you love camping, hiking, survival skills, horse back riding, fishing and more apply to be a Camp Counselor at Cal-Wood Education Center in Jamestown, CO! I was a counselor last summer and it was the BEST summer I've ever had!! I worked with an awesome team and we had so much fun with our campers during the variety of camps that are offered".

    So, COME JOIN OUR TEAM! We could use a few more counselors for the summer season starting May 30th.

    Check out our website for more information and we look forward to hearing from you! http://www.calwood.org/get-involved/employment

    Howdy Neighbors!

    I have some soaps to sell! It's been a busy couple of months, and I've stockpiled an inventory. I'm opening an Etsy shop under Visioneers, but if anyone would like to buy soap directly from me, I would gratefully oblige. In another lifetime, I was the production manager for a soap company in California. I've been working on my recipes and feel pretty good about these formulations. I'm thinking about offering a soap-making class if there is enough interest, please email me if you have an interest! Also, I'm thinking of offering a custom soap service, so if you have a favorite scent, I can make it for you!

    Soaps: $5.00
    Lemon Lavender
    Lemon Geranium Rose
    Citrus
    Woodsy (rosemary, vetiver, Clary Sage)
    Cedarwood, Vetiver, Myrrh
    And a happy accident I'm calling Spring Sprung (a blend of Woodsy & Citrus) very punchy and bright!

    Or you can buy a 5pack for $20 (mountain deal)

    Sandalwood Vetiver $6.50 (not included in 5 pack)

    This soap is moisturizing and designed for high mountain aridity. It's 100% vegan and organic. Believe in reuse before recycle, so I use different containers as soap molds before I recycle them, so soaps may come in different shapes, but will always be the same product!
    It's kind of fun and adds a little whimsy to my life!

    SIDENOTE TO BAR K HORSES (and owners) I have a some bars that didn't make the cut and I wanted to offer them for bath time for horses and pets. It's still good soap, just not up to my standards for resale. If it would be appropriate, I'd be happy to drop off a box at the stables. Free of charge.

    Thank you for your interest!

    Hello -

    As you may have guessed, last week's weather slowed things down a bit for the advance work required prior to construction commencing on James Canyon Drive and in James Creek. Major construction and associated travel delays are now anticipated to begin the week of June 5. There may be short, infrequent delays (1 or 2 minutes) to help surveyors complete their work this week and next, but that should be all. I'll update you and www.JamesCanyon.com should anything change.

    I hope you have a good week and a fun holiday weekend.

    Oops about Andy, sorry!

    Meanwhile, the question came up how this storm ranks compared to others in my record: it was the 6th snowiest three-day total (42.8") since the winter of 1990/91, narrowly beating last year's April storm (42.6"), but behind early February 2012 (46.0"), April 1997 (46.6"), March 1998 (51.0"), October 1997 (56.6"), and the storm of this century: March 2003 (63.4"). Only the April '97 and March '03 storms as well as a three-footer in April 2009 had more water content, this ranks 4th at 4.13". It pulverized various May records for most snow (even for the whole month) and precipitation, most noteworthy: 36.9" of snow fell on the 18th, a new calendar-daily record for any time of year, just over 1" ahead of the snowiest days in April '97, October '97, March '03, and February '12.

    I guess no one has seen Bella the Beagle? Had we only known earlier yesterday that she was missing...

    We would have searched before dark. just getting up now.

    Does anyone have any large dog harnesses? I could attempt to use my big dogs to search for her.

    She is smaller than her brother, Bobby the Beagle.

    I can offer doggie sleepovers for future reference. I wish Adam had let us know he was going on vacation.

    Please keep an eye out for a cute little beagle pup. Thanks.

    Thank you Mr. Busey, in answer your question, no the backs of the boxes do not need to be dug out.

    To "I confirming stereotype". Yes I know why car was there. But it was still there at 11:45 am Friday, more then enough time to have been moved, as the roads were clear. Remember it's your mail, the car stopped you from getting it.

    To "rip your head off" sorry you are so angry. And you your version is "nicer".

    I just went down to shovel them out and someone beat me too it. Thanks whoever did it! The car is gone too.

    I should say, the front of the mailboxes are clear...... Being a newbee to this type of box, does the back get shoveled as well? Not sure if it gets filled from the front or the back. If so, let me know and I will go back down.

    Unfortunately we couldn't deliver the post yesterday because the postboxes are inaccessible. As you may not know, clearing the snow from the area around boxes is a customer responsibility. Please don't park near the boxes because it prevents the grader from clearing the area. We'll try to deliver the post again today.

    And I shouldn't respond to the QT before my coffee and rip your head off.

    Be nice Mark. If someone left their car there, it is most likely because the road was unpassable because the snow plow didn't plow it. You aren't the center of the universe.

    Hi, mail can't delivered at Bar-k until you (customers responsibility) dig out boxes. Also leaving your car there over night makes it impossible for anyone plowing to help - road-grader was there yesterday but car was in the way. We will try again today.

    Klaus, you are extremely generous in warning us when you decide to bring in one of your storms. But you're kind of a trickster concerning when you decide to dump one of them on us. Right after I take my shorts and sandals out of storage, for instance.
    So I've been up here 6 years, and I think this might be the biggest snowstorm so far? There was a big one about 4 years ago, in March I think, whch if I remember correctly also maxed out at about 38 inches.

    I came down at 5:30am from Sky Ranch, in a 4wd pickup. The hardest part was getting to Overland Rd. Switchbacks weren't bad, didn't feel too slippery, in some places you could imagine that the road has two lanes. Much better than when I came up yesterday at midday. Once you get to Jamestown, it's home free. The semi is still stuck below Jamestown, poor guy, but very obvious if you are coming downhill. The road is pretty much clean below the junction to Ward. The county was clearing a rockslide just above Buckingham Park, one lane closed, it slowed me down for about 30 seconds. Boulder's roads are clean of snow.
    I don't know why people are thanking Klaus; Klaus, why didn't you give us this storm back in January, when the ski areas were open? Sometimes I question your timing.

    Worst drive home I can remember. Switchbacks were a mess. Ranch Rd. was slick but muddy with really high drifts to avoid in places the plow missed. Watch out for the white pick-up mid-way up the switchbacks in the left side ditch-poor guy was shoveling out but there was no way we could stop/help without getting stuck..... I hope everyone who needed to get home made it. Very difficult staying on the single lane patch coming up. Traction control, skid control and plenty of throttle. It was a scary ride. Be safe.

    Regarding road conditions, I just talked to the plow driver as he was clearing the intersection of Ranch with Ridge Road. He "promised" he would be back in the morning to finish the plowing going into Crockett/Bridger Trails. I was impressed that he was still working this late (>6pm), you don't see that very often.

    Speaking of rare events, my updated snow tally (about five measurements since it started) on a snowboard is at 38.2", level snow depth on the ground is now 29". This puts the monthly total over 40", making May the snowiest month of the season (I think I have seen that only once before). We should get off and on snow into tomorrow, but I don't think it will be more than another 4-8" (edited this based on latest information). A similar storm in late April 97 took just over two weeks to melt, but that was almost a month earlier. On the other hand, it will stay cold right into mid-week. Looks like a late start to our fire season...

    Plow came through the main loop about 30 minutes ago and saved at least seven of us. I recommend not leaving The K. I was ahead of plow, so the switchbacks were really dicey for me in my Subaru. The problem in The K was that most of the cars highsided.

    About a half mile below Jamestown is a flatbed semi off to the side. Emergency triangles are set up below it, but it's just after a turn as you are coming up.

    I spoke to the Xcel guys earlier. They told me they have crews stationed up here for the storm. They said when the power goes out again they will do their best to get it back as soon as they can.

    Rick plowed my driveway around 11am. I barreled through it upon my return, but I know my Subaru isn't getting out again anytime soon.

    Sorry I don't have any extra firewood, Jackie. I brought the last of what I had in last night.

    Huge thanks to Dan Walker, Rick Rudy, Matt Johnson, and all the other neighbors who rallied to keep us all moving; and to Sal for keeping Mountain High on line! Stay warm and safe everyone.

    Power was flickering at Hidden Lake around 5:30 am, Left Hand Canyon had a plow making rounds but the snow is falling faster than can be cleared. Several trees down but enough room to go around. Snow was starting to stick in Boulder but it looks like massive snowflakes are turning back to rain.

    Good evening everyone,

    what has changed since yesterday?

    1. The storm appears to be a tad slower - this will allow the airmass to modify (warm) a bit compared to yesterday's scenario, reducing the amount of snow possible in lower elevations; it also means that the storm will start a bit later and linger longer;

    2. There is a hint that it might also track a wee bit further north (especially in European model), putting Larimer County more under the gun than counties further south;

    3. I will discard the latest GFS model (18z) that puts 10" of moisture on top of NW Boulder County (yes, that would be insane, but then again I thought that 18" of rain in one week were impossible in Boulder before September 2013)...

    For Front Range cities, this means that the 2-4" of moisture still predicted to fall from the sky will have a hard time changing to accumulating snow. I am downscaling the snowtotals for Boulder to a sloppy 2-4" by Friday morning (still looking at the best chance for snow tomorrow night), with perhaps up to 6" west of Broadway. Friday night looks like the best chance for a freeze as well. Impacts on vegetation may end up fairly benign below 5.5K. Fort Collins is lower in elevation, but could make up for that 'handicap' by precipitating more, so 4" of snow look not out of the question.

    High school graduation parties on Saturday may still suffer from soggy lawns (and a lingering chill), but should be mostly unaffected by fresh hydrometeors from the sky.

    Lower foothills (<7K) are in for at least a foot of soggy snow over Larimer and (northern) Boulder County.

    Higher foothills (>8K) are in for a historic dump for this time of year, at this point I would be disappointed in seeing less than 20" of snow from Nederland northwards to Red Feather Lakes.
    Twice that is possible by Friday mid-day (and starting later this evening). Given the time of year I don't think we will get more than 30" on the ground, still possibly setting records for so late in the season, at least since 1950. Even without the outlier GFS model run, I expect to see a few reports over 5" of moisture. Aside from causing traffic problems, I hope that we don't get too many power outages - leaving refrigerator/freezer contents outside in the snow could attract bears that have come out of hibernation.

    Jefferson County/Denver look less favored by this overall scenario, too close to the track of the upper low, and under warmer air. Perhaps 1-2" of moisture, and up to 10-20" of snow in the highest foothills.

    Wildfire danger should be minimal for a while after this one, especially considering that we will stay cool and somewhat unsettled next week (cold enough for some snow above 8K, especially around Tuesday next week.

    I welcome any and all snowfall reports resulting from this storm in particular!

    Good evening everyone,

    what can I say, our Front Range spring is up to its fickle reputation this year. First of all, April was colder in Boulder than March (same for me and some other foothill locations, but not in Denver or Fort Collins), then the PSA#8 storm in late April dropped up to two feet of snow near Genessee (over a foot in most of the foothills, and a relatively puny 7.8" in Boulder), to end the month with near-record cold (21F in Boulder really did a number on Boulder's honey locust trees). Last week's cold rain, followed by 80sF over the weekend gave our vegetation a good shot in the arm, and now this:

    A snowstorm of potentially historical proportions for this late in the season is possible from tomorrow evening into Friday! When I say "us" I mean pretty much everyone west of Denver to Fort Collins, with a good chance for record-breaking snows even into the plains. When I say "historical", I am referring to the rarity of storms of this size after mid-May. For reference, the biggest I could find for Boulder was 19" of snow around the 20th of May 1931, and higher up, the station at the base of Longs Peak (of Enos Mills fame) recorded 49" of snow from May 27-30th back in 1924. Since 1950, the biggest storms on record for this late in the season are closer to half of the earlier benchmarks.

    A lot can still go wrong with this one, but I like that the precursor storm today came thru as if on cue, since it will play a critical role if it slows down as planned and cuts off just to our north and east of here. If it behaves according to plan, it will help steer the incoming storm from the Pacific Northwest a bit further south which would help set up this rare late-May snowstorm, not unlike what happened in early May 1978. Above 8K, the incoming airmass will be cold enough for snow by tomorrow evening, with the coldest air about 24h later (Thursday evening) when it should snow down to the plains, and linger well into Friday morning. Tentative totals for elevations below 6K: 4-8", with up to a foot west of Broadway in Boulder, etc. This is measured on tables/snowboards, not roads.

    Model consensus right now is on the order of 2" of moisture for most of us (with potential for up to twice that), the heaviest snow appears to be aiming at the higher foothills from about Gold Hill up towards Red Feather Lakes (and points west to the divide) where less than a foot would be a huge "disappointment" (yes, even I am torn about this one), and two-three feet cannot be ruled out. For the higher elevations, I hope that DOT is on the ball with their snowplows, especially Friday might become impassable along and near Peak-to-Peak highway, while lower elevations have to brace for major impacts to gardens and trees, both from snow and a freeze, especially Friday into Saturday.

    Beyond this storm, there is yet another (smaller) one lurking to our north for early next week, so this is not quite over yet.

    I will update/finetune this within the next 24h -

    I am SO GRATEFUL for the amazing celebration that went down last night. I am so full of love and still overwhelmed by the support from everyone last night at my graduation ceremony / party. It was too expensive to go to Prescott for graduation and having this ceremony AND party at the Merc was way better, anyway - AND there was a cake with my face on it! Thank you so much to Rainbow, Adam, Juna, Kofi, Louie (my keynote speaker), Kyle/Elvis, my Cal-Wood community, Sal for the wonderful photos, Beth Brotherton for the ENDLESS support throughout this process and to everyone who showed up to celebrate. What a night! Thank you everyone again for your love and support and when I get the hard copies of my thesis, I'll be happy to share it! Love this town and appreciate your support and love!

    Any recommendations for a window cleaner?

    Kim: Go to Jamescanyon.com for construction updates. Yesterday afternoon Andrew Barth from the County posted on the JT QT about a timeline change.

    For what it's worth, when there were road delays in the past I would drive up, over, and down through Ward when headed towards Boulder. The drive is only about 15 minutes longer and spared me from the stress of lane closures. When I needed to go to Lyons, I would take the Peak to Peak to Hwy 7. That is about 20 minutes longer, but stress-free, too.

    I know you may feel like you've been bombarded with messages about the CareConnect signup event. But with this event, the Aging Well in Community initiative comes full circle.

    Last February, we did a needs assessment. Since then, we've met and had presentations from relevant services & support organizations. Now we're ready to match needs to actual available services provided by CareConnect volunteers.

    If you're 60+: Even if you don't currently need any help, sign up now so you're in the CareConnect database for if and when you do.

    Any age: Sign up to volunteer. Your volunteering can be whatever, however, and whenever works for you. With even a couple hours here or there, you can make a big difference for residents with needs.

    So after you do your recycling, stop by the town hall to get more info and/or to sign up.

    _________________________

    P.S. The Aging Well in Community initiative will be taking a summer hiatus and then meet again in the fall. Look for announcements here and in emails. We're already lining up some great speakers!

    Disaster films abuse science in awful and hilarious ways. Tuesday evening at the Merc, there will be a fun lecture on Bad Movie Science. (perhaps the first in a series?) Our Lecturer will be Ray Buland, a really fun guy and all around nice person. The lecture last for 45 minutes shows clips form 12 films and then the floor is open to discussion, opinions and suggestions for the next films to be dissected. In the past this lecture was well received by pre-teens and teens (are they known as tweeners?) so all are welcome. Rainbow promises some new exciting adult beverages and munchies. See you at 6pm Tuesday, May 16

    An aside, our neighbors are amazing, all have interesting skills and histories. It would be fun to start sharing with each other, come on, give a lecture.

    I wasn't in town for the James Canyon project meeting. I am hoping they don't use the heavy hand that was used in Lefthand (straightening curves by blasting away beautiful rock formations, blocking all parking spots, general uglifying, etc).

    I guess I should find hope in the message Erica passed on, which contains this statement: "Project Goals and Objectives: Maintain the environmental and aesthetic aspects of this beautiful land". Let's hold them to that!

    From Boulder County:

    James Canyon & James Creek flood recovery work begins week of May 15
    Road will be reduced to one lane in multiple locations during project

    Boulder County, Colo. – Boulder County Transportation and its project partner and contractor Kelley Trucking, Inc. (KTI) anticipate beginning the James Canyon permanent flood recovery project at 7 a.m. on Monday, May 15. The project is expected to last until December 2018. Flood recovery-related permanent reconstruction will take place on 4.8 miles of James Canyon Drive between the intersection of Lefthand Canyon Drive and just west of Balarat Road/CR 87. In addition, 6,300 feet of stream restoration work will take place in various stretches of James and Little James creeks.

    Travel During Construction – Multiple Single-Lane Closures

    To accommodate construction, KTI will be allowed to reduce James Canyon Drive to a single lane in multiple locations in the canyon. Some of these lane reductions will be in place 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Vehicular and bicycle travel will be controlled by either traffic control personnel (flaggers) or traffic signals. The length of delay will vary at each location, but are not to exceed 15-minutes.

    Cycling Allowed During Construction

    Cyclists will be permitted to ride on James Canyon Drive during construction, but they will be asked to follow the same travel restrictions as motor vehicles. Due to large volumes of heavy construction-related vehicular traffic, Boulder County Transportation is asking that cyclists ride James Canyon outside of normal working hours (see information below).

    When cyclists traveling uphill towards Jamestown are stopped at traffic signals or by traffic control personnel, they will be asked to move to the side of the road in order to allow faster moving motor vehicles to proceed through the work zone before entering the zone themselves.

    Project Work Hours:

        Work will take place on weekdays (Monday through Friday)
        No weekend work unless absolutely necessary
        Working hours – March 1 to Oct. 31 – 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. (due to longer daylight availability)
        Working hours – Nov. 1 to Feb. 28 – 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
        The project is anticipated to last until December 2018, weather permitting

    Local Businesses Open – Access will be maintained at all times

    The Jamestown Mercantile and the post office will maintain normal business hours during construction. Access to these establishments and residential driveways will be maintained at all times.

    Project Goals and Objectives

    All Boulder County Transportation flood recovery projects have the same goals and objectives:

        Make the road, its infrastructure, and the creek system stronger in preparation for the next natural disaster – improved drainage structures, embankment stabilization, rockeries and retaining walls, and new subsurface and asphalt will help make this area more resilient towards the next flood
        Make the road safer for all modes of travel – a 4-foot uphill shoulder will be rebuilt on James Canyon Drive to give cyclists and pedestrians room to move outside of the main travel lane
        Improve drainage and prevent roadway overtopping
        Restore area creeks and the surrounding environment
        Stabilize slopes to prevent falling debris
        Maintain the environmental and aesthetic aspects of this beautiful land
        Maintain the cultural and historical significance of the area.

    Project website and email listserv

    You can find complete roadway travel restriction information by visiting www.JamesCanyon.com. While visiting the site, sign up for the project listserv to receive weekly and timely construction updates and up-to-the-minute information on roadway closures and travel delays. Travel restriction information for this project and all other county-related work is available at: www.BoCoConeZones.com.

    Howdy neighbors!

    Anyone need work? There is a new retreat center opening up above the Bar K called Rocky Mountain Eco Dharma Retreat Center and they are in the process of purchasing the southern parcel of the Christian Science Center's land. They plan to be open in full effect next year, and in the meantime they are wanting to work with as many locals as possible. The scope of their project starts them with some demo and hauling, to interior rebuild and exterior reinforcements of the very old building on the property. They are a small non profit whose vision is to keep things minimal so that folks who rent the center for retreats pay a minimum. For the next step of the project, I'm helping them connect with the community tradespeople and local cooks.

    For next year, they want to amass a list of "approved cooks" for their clients to use if they choose not to cook for themselves. These cooks would not be an employee. I am working with them to figure out the easiest way to facilitate this list. If you are interested, Please contact me at the below address.

    Here is a list of what they are looking for:

    Wage to be worked out between you and them:
    Cleaners
    General Labor
    Dump Runs w Pickup Truck
    Crew to clear and buck up standing and down dead trees, and clear some brush

    Bids needed:
    Electricians
    Plumbers
    Roofers
    General Carpentry
    Windows and Doors
    HVAC

    If you are interested, please send me your contact info and trade and I'll put together a list for them. They are eager to start work as soon as possible.

    Best,
    Kelly
