    Did anyone receive a couple of packages addressed to Nancy Rehak? FedEx says they were delivered at 11:17 this morning, but they weren't at my house so I think they were misdelivered. If you have my packages, give me a call at 3454 or put a message here and I'll come pick them up. Thanks!!

    Hello All, The Fourth Of July party in Jamestown is right around the corner! A few reminders if you have coolers, or e-z ups that we can use for the event please drop them off (labeled) in the town hall- you will be able to pick them up on the 5th! If you haven't signed up to help please do so the sign up sheets are in the merc by the drink cooler we can't run this event without help from the CommUNITY. Lastly if you have donations for the raffle there is a table set up in the back of the town hall where you can drop them off! Thank you for making this event great!

    Unless there are now two British SUVs screaming past us from the Bar-K to Boulder, the vehicle most of you are referencing is a LAND ROVER. Not a Range Rover. Some of us have complained for the past couple years to the Boulder County Sheriff department and State Police. They could use more ID on the driver. Please call them in any case, as more complaints supports more action by law enforcement.

    Hey there neighbors. Some of us Jimtowners are familiar with the Goofball in the white Range Rover. This idiot passed me last week just below Elliots Pitch doing about 80 then went into the corner at the bottom halfway across the middle line. Ultra badness! Grr . . . .

    The tow truck came! Junk cars are gone. We'll move the one by the road into the driveway later today.

    I was passed by that white range rover on a blind corner a couple months ago, they were speeding too.
    I was afraid,and agree they are driving dangerously.
     
    Regarding the cat poop pilot, Disgusting! The last tenants we had apparently were dumping in the back yard of the house we just sold, and we had to clean it up.
    There was snow when they moved out ,and it never even crossed our minds that someone would even think about dumping cat litter and poop in the yard.
    The worst thing is they didn't put it in a pile, but spread it all over, even down in the rocks in the back, took me an entire day to clean it up.
    Some people are just so disgusting and have no respect for the land or anyone living here. Good that you posted a pic of the car , Jeff.
    If I see that pilot around , I'll set them straight. I'll try to be nice about it, but no promises I won't go off on them.
    We have 3 cats and bag our litter and poop up and pay to dump it , I'll suggest they do the same. We bag up the dog poop and pay to dump too.
    Lately everything like that is going into the giant roll off here, which almost full and getting dumped and delivered again soon.
    Sorry about the mess over the last couple years here, we can finally afford to deal with it.Thanks for your patience neighbors!

    Signing up to help with the Jamestown 4th of July Celebration just got easier!
    Click here (or point your smartphone camera at the QR code above) and sign up online:
    https://signup.com/go/pHGKXmL
    If you haven't helped with this event in the past, you don't know what you're missing, and if you have participated in previous years, you know how much fun it can be! So, what are you waiting for? You'll have to wait another whole year before the opportunity arises again. Shifts are only a couple hours so you're not signing up for the entire day. And there are so many to choose from, like breakfast cook, cashier, selling merchandise like t-shirts, selling raffle tickets, helping with lunch, prepping food the day before, setting up the day before and so much more! Check it out - it's all great fun and a chance to celebrate with neighbors and friends. Just click here and choose your spot:

    And, a big FU to the driver of the silver pickup with out of state plates that passed my motorcycle around a curve going downhill on Rock Lake Rd.

    Really? Washboard, gravel, downhill on a motorcycle, not to mention the blind corner? For what it's worth, the speed limit is 20 and I was exceeding that.You probably saved 2-3 seconds getting to the stop sign.

Some jackass has been doing that around here for the last 20 years, and it pisses me off.

    Yay Cipo! So happy for you. FYI - There are a variety of pet tracking systems available now. They work great. We would find our cats in places we would never have looked, not to mention the little bastards wouldn’t come when we called, even when standing right next to them! With a tracker, we’d walk straight to them in tall grass from across the field - the look on their faces was priceless.

    I saw this message on Facebook's "Peak to Peak Lost Pets:"

    "My friend lost his dog in the James Creek yesterday, outside of Ward. He said that she got swept away in the current. He never did recover her. I know that Nederland isn’t that close but if you know anyone in that area or even towards Jamestown, I could sure use some help. She’s old, 13. Her name is Missy. She has on a green collar with fish on it."

    Contact me at lauraDOTwilliamsAThotmailDOTcom or (72o) 8o8-4815 and I can get in touch with the owner.

    Happy dancing because of shooting restrictions on public lands. For every responsible gun owner there are many more that just don't care. All it takes is one to cause a tragedy. We have seen out of state plates on cars with shooters parked on the switchbacks. Have heard guns down in the Ceran St. Vrain after dark. Just hope these restrictions are enforceable.

    I am not talking about the areas below the switchback, that area is closed and will remain so. I completely agree that area is not appropriate for shooting. I usually shoot at an old mine on forest property that is mostly covered in tailings. I do not shoot near the road nor do I think that is a good idea. I do not agree with closing over 200 thousands acres to shoot because of the behavior of some people. I am perfectly aware of fire hazards related to shooting. It is not a ricochet spark that you need to worry about but tracer rounds and explosive targets which both are already not legal for shooting on public land. I am not against closing areas near roads but look at the map posted.....the whole county is going to be closed. The waiting list to join the Boulder Rifle Club is 9 years the last I knew. A nice Idea that everyone should join the club but that is not possible. I much more worried about the people who pass on blind curves while driving in canyon than I am about any of the possible disasters sighted as safety concerns.

    I might add just one more thing and then I'm out of here on this subject, since it's really a no-win debate. We've had a relatively moist beginning of the summer this year which is really very uncommon. It just takes one unnoticed ricochet spark, to really make a nice afternoon shooting turn into a nightmare.. Nuff, said.

    Well as one responsible gun owner to another you do realize there are far more unresponsible idiots out there who would rather forgo paying the fee to go to a to a reputable shooting range. You're probably referring to the one below the switchbacks which is often been trashed out and in my opinion is still way too close to the road for safe shooting. There is a shooting range that's just off of Nelson Road not far from Highway 36. It's more likely a private range, but still one a lot safer to utilize than going out in the woods where you don't know who's going to be hiking, beyond your line of sight.

    Rick,
         The normal things that constitute safe shooting, a good back stop, a clear area free of of combustible materiel etc. Much easier to just close down over 200 thousand acres. We have several good places to shoot in the neighborhood here near the Bar-K which was one reason I bought my house here over 20 years ago. Plenty of "authorized shooting areas"? Really? Like where? Please point them out to me as I know the the Forest service lands in this area very well. We do not have a public range in Boulder County, though I am a member of a private range. I am personally beyond disgusted with this and it being sold as a "localized perspective"....what crap. My opinion was not welcome, Gary Sanfrancon made that quite clear in my conversations with him.

    How is it determined where it's safe to shoot in the hundreds of thousands of square miles of hiking and camping spaces? There are plenty of authorized shooting areas where it's easy to clean up after yourself. Far too often there's too much bullet-ridden appliances and such left on public lands at the expense of a free place to shoot. Just my humble opinion as a responsible gun owner.

    I guess I will get in as much shooting on Forest land as possible before it is outlawed.....just a horrible decision as there are many, many safe places to shoot within the several hundred thousand acres to be closed down. All in the name of "progress" I suppose.

    Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests Releases Final Decision for Recreational Sport Shooting
    Final decision balances recreational shooting opportunities with safety concerns

     

    FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Forest Supervisor Monte Williams today signed the final decision on the Recreational Sport Shooting Management Project. The goal of the project is to provide safer opportunities for all forest visitors by identifying areas where recreational sport shooting is unsuitable.

    “Close, collaborative work with our partners, interests groups and the local community has helped us reach this balanced decision. We appreciate the time everyone has taken to provide input on this complex project,” said Williams. “My decision continues to deliver recreational sport shooting opportunities while providing for public safety, which was the ultimate goal.”

    The decision will protect public safety through restrictions on recreational sport shooting on 226,113 acres of the 1.4 million acre Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests. Other areas of the forest and around Colorado remain available for recreational sport shooting when following all rules and regulations. This decision will not affect lawful hunting with a firearm in areas where it is currently allowed. Identified unsuitable areas, not already closed to recreational sport shooting, will not be closed until public shooting ranges are open as part of the decision.

    Only minor changes were made from the draft decision to the final decision, including some clarifying language and the addition of 539 unsuitable acres identified through the objection process. There are three components to the final decision:

    - Language amending the Forest Plan to address management of Recreational Sport Shooting;

    - A forest-wide map showing areas where Recreational Sport Shooting is unsuitable and will be restricted; and

    - An adaptive management strategy that allows the Forest to quickly respond should new or unforeseen safety issues occur in the future.

    Additional information, including the final decision and map, is available on our website.

    A phased implementation plan will be coordinated with partners as public shooting areas are constructed. Many of the restrictions are contingent on shooting ranges being developed to maintain recreational shooting opportunities in those areas with the most restrictions. Details on the progress of shooting ranges can be found at the Northern Front Range Recreational Sport Shooting Management Partnership’s website.

    “This Partnership has provided a great opportunity to have all levels of government come together to find a solution to such a challenging situation while representing many stakeholders,” Colorado Parks and Wildlife Northeast Regional Manager Mark Leslie said. “The contingency on public shooting ranges allows for sport shooting opportunities while addressing safety concerns forest visitors and residents have expressed.”

    The Partnership, which includes Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and Boulder, Clear Creek, Gilpin and Larimer counties, has provided a localized perspective on safety issues and the desire for sustainable RSS activities that they have heard from their constituents.

    The Forest Service wants to remind everyone that this decision is in addition to already established rules and regulations for recreational sport shooting.

    Hi all-
    The USFS has released it's final report on recreational sport shooting: https://www.fs.usda.gov/nfs/11558/www/nepa..._FSPLT3_4656172.pdf It appears that there are no recreational sport shooting areas in Lefthand/James Canyons, instead the Forest and County are encouraging shooters to go to public ranges. Hunting in the forest is still allowed.

    Second, I am going to be revitalizing the garden in front of the post office in Jamestown on Saturday, June 15, from 9:00-11:00 am. Would welcome any and all help.

    FYI...... a useful bear deterrent may be Irish Spring soap shavings. Very powerful aromatic and dirt cheap.We were gone for 2 weeks and took our dogs. I threw a whole bar of it into my car, since I had food crumbs in there and no time to clean it out. Irish Spring shavings are throughout our garage and shed and in crawl spaces of our house.I had some in the flower bed and out in the yard where we parked the RV. We use it for mice and ground squirrels but since we had our neighbors feed the hummers while were gone and there was no sign of bear activity, perhaps it works for those bad boys, too. A moose was interested in my car though. The car must have smelled like a fresh meadow, because my neighbors said it was hanging around looking in the windows. My neighbors had bear trouble while we were gone, so there is one in the area. Irish Spring-check it out.

    One of the access points on the Mountain High Wifi tower was damaged by the afternoon storm today. About 60% of our users are currently affected.
    No need to troubleshoot your household equipment at this point I will update on the QT when I have an ET of repair.
    Please spread the word to your neighbor if you received this message..Thanks for your support.

    PS
    That was a major hit-the walls crackled in our house.

    The five horses charged that poor baby moose and chased it into the marshy area in Lower South Pasture. Mama moose and the other baby were nearby at Penny Lake and they have since been reunited... Please be aware of wildlife when you're out and about, especially near the lakes. My friends were attacked last year by a moose (she also had two babies) in their yard on High Lake Dr. They did absolutely nothing to provoke it, the Mama moose just attacked as soon as she spotted them working in the garden...

    If we can post sightings of the lone baby, at some point, the mama might be sighted and we could gently herd them in one another’s direction.

    Also, we should make sure that no dogs are running loose and try to keep walking dogs away from the baby. I’ve sent an email to Joe Padia, our local Parks guy as well, to give him a heads up. I’ll post if I learn anything else. I hope that the little family is reunited soon.

    It's my understanding if you intervene with a deer or a moose calf the mothers will abandon them because they will sense your smell on them

    HEY BAR K'ERS -

    there was a mama moose and her twins on Ranch Rd last night. They got separated at Penny Lake and the Mama went below with one baby. the other baby just surfaced from the lower south pasture area and headed north on ranch. PLEASE be careful and drive SLOW until they can get reunited. The baby is hungry and frightened and has been crying for her Mama. it's breaking my heart, she's so little....

    Not certain if there is something we could/should do intervening but open to suggestions...

    Hi Everyone! Please read this entire urgent message...

    Our annual benefit for JVFD/EMS (that is, Jamestown Volunteer Fire Department & Emergency Medical Service) is the biggest party of the year in our town and includes live music all day, starting in Little Park during the Pancake Breakfast and continuing in Big Park throughout the rest of the day.

    As our donation to the event, JAM will provide use of our sound equipment, as well as rental of bass bins to enhance the system on an outdoor stage.

    We look to commUNITY members to cover the day of running the sound board, helping bands change over, and assisting with stage duties. Please consider volunteering for a 2-hour shift and help us with sound! Without sound volunteers, we would not be able to have music!

    IT'S EASIER THAN YOU MAY THINK!!!

    Corey Kirschner has graciously volunteered to set up the equipment and provide sound for a shift during the day on July 4th, but he really can't do it alone or for the whole entire day!

    So, Corey is hosting a free AUDIO WORKSHOP on Saturday, June 15th from 12-4 p.m. at JamesTown Hall to teach how to set up, operate, and clean up the JAM sound system. All interested people are invited, especially those who already attended one of these workshops! We are also seeking 1 or 2 bands to rehearse on the Town Hall stage for this workshop.

    Please email jamfortheartsATgmailDOTcom if you can join this workshop and/or if you can please help us provide sound either in Little or Big Park on July 4th! Likewise, please forward this invitation to anyone you think may be interested or could help us out!

    Also email if your band would like to practice at Town Hall either from 1-2 p.m. or 2-3 p.m. on Saturday, June 15th.

    Thanks for considering and for supporting JVFD/EMS and The Arts!

    Thought if I got the bird feeder in before dark, it'd be okay. A rather large either black or very dark brown bear proved me wrong and took it out, just before dark. He calmly moved on, when he noticed me, in the general direction of the common pasture between my place and Carl Armand's. Wish I'd had time to take a picture. He was rather impressive, as far as appearing well fed, this soon out of hibernation. A rather well fed adult.

    Rick - what a happy day it was when we cut the cord to DirecTV! Purchased a small exterior antennae for $40... we get PBS, 2-3 Denver main network channels, and approximately 10 other channels we don’t watch with westerns, kids shows, religious crap and game shows. Also, YouTube has a DIY on easy shortcut to place new antenna where the dish was mounted. Dish slides off, the other clamps right on... there are websites that reveal the precise direction to point the new antenna. Needless to say the DirecTV cable was already in the TV and ready to go - but I had to tell the TV to find the new antenna and scan the stations. They are in HD! The whole thing took about an hour, including setting up and putting away the ladder! Love it!

    I am concluding my 16 years of organizing this annual event. It has been very special to me because I have met many of my friends through this endeavor. I would like to give the name and info. of a new coordinator for our 2.4miles of road to DOT in Boulder within next couple of weeks.

    Hey is winter over yet?? Gads! Haven't posted here in a while nor looked at what's up. Yep air horns work. The critters think you are a dinosaur or something and no one gets hurt. Well keep in mind if you use one, especially with a moose, having something big (like you car) to hide behind might be a "good" idea. Haha.. Great and we have 4 wheelers. Just yesterday a teller in a bank told me about 4 wheeling and getting lost up by Ward. Hmm, ? Like I needed to hear this. So now I am still here and providing the wide variety of services like landscaping, trees stuff, stone work and whatever you need. Also could help if you are frustrated about the who to find em thing. Okay now --- NO MORE SNOW. as i wave my wand.

    Concerning the four wheeling on the forest service lands behind Rock Lake, We can always close Rock Lake off to motorized vehicles, with the exception of boat drop off or at the very least require a Bar-K membership card to drive on Bar-K property. I really don't see a reason why people can't park on the road and take a little walk to the lake.

    I agree Don-thank you for your comments.
    The challenge moving forward as more people move to the mountains is, how can we all enjoy this shared space while respecting nature? I hope we can find ways to work together on this. I’m still really bummed that someone took their ATV on the Benedict’s property and tore it up, making figure 8s all in that beautiful valley that has the incredible view of the mountains. This was one of the reasons we lost our privileges to hike (and ride our horses) on her property. The caretaker was able to follow the tracks back to the Bar-K. On the other hand I’m glad she is a real steward of the land and won’t tolerate people tearing up such a beautiful place. I still hope she will give us another chance at some point.

    We went off to enjoy the national forest to the southwest of Rock Lake yesterday and were upset at the condition of the trails. We were dismayed to see that someone had driven their 4 wheeler over the single-track trails while the ground was still too muddy and significantly degraded the trail into double-track ruts in some areas. While we've seen evidence of ATVs on the single-track sections since last year, this was way more damage in one shot. More concerning, still, is that they drove up the single-track trail that leads off south to 100J, crushing the little trees flanking the trail and knocking rocks loose onto the trail, tearing up the grassy sections at the top, and cross-cutting the curves. Hard to believe that trail is even drivable in an ATV, but I guess some people will do anything to get their kicks.

    I know there must be others who are also concerned, since there have been log barriers built that I assume were to try to block ATVs (which apparently have not worked). I also know that this is national forest, and ya-hoo!, anything goes, but please show a little respect for the land and the people who enjoy it without ruining it.

    Let's try to preserve what little single-track we have left back there. We lost a lot during the mitigation work years back. In this area, it can take years for damage to recover. There are plenty of roads and double-track out there for 4 wheeled vehicles. Please leave the single-track trails for hikers, horses, and two-wheeled vehicles! Thank you for listening to my rant.

    Hey neighbors! Ever wonder what I do when I go to Cuba, Mexico, Costa Rica and the Galapagos?!

    I get lots of questions about my new job at Intercultural Outreach Initiative (https://www.ioi.ngo/) and I'm really excited to do a presentation at the Jamestown Mercantile on June 11th! Come learn about the organization as well as our opportunities to volunteer in Galapagos, Cuba, or Costa Rica!

    We'll start around 6 and there will be a light dinner and beverages.

    More info to come!

    Stay vigilant, Bar-K!!! It's only the beginning of the season, but this is the most important time to make sure the bears are unsuccessful in getting food from cars and homes! Invest in a bear-proof trash can. Freeze your food trash in ziploc bags so your home trash doesn't stink. Clean your cars thoroughly AND LOCK THEM!!! If there is no food in your car and it is locked, the bears will try and move on without success. Haze them if you safely can (airhorns are great or even banging pots and pans) and keep alerting neighbors through bear tracker and the QTs. You're doing everything right so far! Just keep it up and THANKS for saving our bears!

    Also, thanks for sharing the amazing photos and story of the bear scaling your electric fence! Their perseverance is mind-blowing when they are hungry! Make sure they are unsuccessful in getting food and they will move on.

    Robert Schaller mentioned seeing a tagged bear on May 20. We had bear visits on 5-20, 5-22, and 5-23. From tracks in the snow on Monday and Wednesday I found that he'd gone to each of six neighbor's front doors and around their cars. It seems the bear is like a bloodhound, following scents that people leave wherever they go. The tracks showed the bear got bit by our electric bear fence at two locations. Both days he circled the fence perimeter completely. My wife said, "the Indians are circling", but it was comforting to know the fence was working to keep him out.

    On Thursday evening before dark I noticed a bear just outside walking around the fence. He came to the fence but avoided touching the wire. I hadn't seen this was a bear before, a young chocolate boar. I snapped a few photos and opened the door to watch and video any interaction with the fence. It was apparent that he knew the fence and was looking for ways to get over it. To my surprise he leaped up to bounce off an aspen and vaulted over the polywire. A moment later he was 8 ft. from me in the doorway and looked up when I said, "you'd better go home". He promptly left the way he came in.

    The rubber pellets and 12ga. noise is adverse conditioning to keep them at a distance. I don't relish a close encounter of the wrong kind and I certainly don't want to see these magnificent animals hurt. My neighbor Charlie confirmed it's the same bear he saw Monday because it wore two green CPW ear tags. I hope he finds a cute girl bear and spends the summer foraging in the high mountains far, far away. Tomorrow I will add another wire to raise the fence from 36" to 42".

    FYI: Bears learned to open car doors 25+ years ago. They can operate the newer latch style handles quite easily.
    Locked and Clean Cars DO NOT reward this activity. Typically, if there is NO FOOD and the car IS CLEAN ~ there is
    not reason to explore further and they move on (to the next car/house). Should a Bear get trapped in your vehicle, as happens if
    they can gain entry, they will freak out and trash your car. It's not pretty either. Bleach can be used to wipe surfaces with
    and Bears don't like the odor. Locked and Clean is the way to go.

    We had a bear visitor too on Ridge. Muddy inside car but the bear only found an old ginger chew wrapper under the seat.

    If the car is locked, is it more likely that they will damage the handle or outside in frustration?

    Thanks to each of you who made this possible, because you ALL did! Django's home with us now, and after munching greedily on his dinner, he's fast asleep at my feet. Huge, huge thanks to Rick Westmoreland, who helped us contain django in his fenced yard today and waited patiently until the dog had calmed down enough to be petted and enjoy a treat or two. Words of high praise for everyone who was involved in any way in the 4-day search. You reminded us that there's still goodness in the world, and people who will go out of their way to help a terrified young dog find his way to a new and welcoming home.

    Kathryn to follow up on contacting a rescue. Boulder County Animal control (dial 411 and ask for animal control) may be able to help. They have their ways of getting to a skittish dog. Ask to be contacted by whomever handles the mountain calls. Also there is a German Shepherd rescue not near by but breed rescues have been known to go the extra extra mile even if the dog is not pure bred.

    I don't know if this will help, but my dog was really skittish when I first got him 11 years ago (and still has some problems). When he would get loose and was scared, he wouldn't come to anyone, even me, even with delicious treats in hand. (He still won't go anywhere near anyone when he's scared.) But he did have a safe space -- the backseat of the car. If I opened the back door of the car and walked away, he would jump into the car. If you think he's by the lake, you might try parking the car and opening a door, then walking away. If he's watching it's possible that he might go to the car if it's a safe space for him. Or if he has a kennel or something where he feels safe, you might try setting that out and walking away. If he saw you by the lake, it seems likely that he would stay in the woods watching you. Anyway, just some thoughts....

    We can't thank you enough, thoughtful & caring neighbors, for what you're doing to help us find and bring home our very frightened young dog. To those of you who've been driving around, leaving phone messages, and/or responding on the QT, you're clearly earning your Canine Angel wings! Unfortunately, we've just learned that he's been running back and forth between Bar K and Overland Drive, even at night, so please be careful when driving, as he's difficult to see! Don't worry about catching him, either, (unless by some miracle you DO!), because it will be difficult when he's so scared, and he definitely runs very fast. Just letting us know where and when you've seen him can make a big difference. You are The Best!

    My house down at the east end of Ridge Road just got thoroughly cased by a light brown medium sized bear with green ear tags. The bear methodically sniffed and stood up as needed to investigate everything around the house, looking for food. I kept moving from one window to another to watch, and it never saw me. He/she seems very calm and focused; my wife saw him/her on Saturday night, but it ran off immediately when it noticed her.

    So, Be warned! Make sure you have no food accessible from the outside! I's now Monday at 7:55 am, and it's moving to the north, presumably towards the Bar-K.

    It was beautiful to watch, sometimes from just a couple of feet away through a window. A very handsome animal, covered with frost. I feel sorry for it having to deal with this cold weather, but we want to see them, not feed them! Alas, I had nothing with which to take a picture...

    First Saturday in June coming fast. This will be our 16th year for our once a year clean up...Adopt A Road project for the county. Not as big a task as “yesteryear”!

Just a two hour or less commitment but a commitment nevertheless. We encourage newbies to participate! Mark it on your calendar and additional info. Will be coming👍

    We have a 19 year old Hitachi Tube TV, 36 inch diagonal, that is still in good working order. We recently discovered that they are now selling TVs without tubes, that are much skinnier, and weigh about a tenth of what our Hitachi weighs (how come no one told us?) Nonetheless, over the holidays we purchased one of these new devices (how smart can a TV really be?), and our Hitachi is sitting around like a teen cousin that has no where to go. Does anyone have a home for such a beast? It is yours for the taking, or in exchange for a good microbrew, should you feel guilty about taking such a priceless treasure off our hands. Extension 3506 in the Bar-K.

    Just got home a few minutes ago, it's a little after 3 p.m. and the roads from Boulder all the way up and into Bar-K are clear and passable, except for the driveway, which was still doable.

    PSA#11 - The fat lady is clearing her throat... 10:59 AM
    (request inbox sign up for Klaus's PSA's at kewolter@ (the mail that starts with G and ends with mail.com)
    Good morning everyone,

    another complex storm system is bearing down on us, in fact, we are in the middle of a transition from one departing storm that was too warm to produce any snow below 9K to a new one that will be cold enough for snow all the way to the plains. The overall (soggy) pattern is basically a big trough of low pressure over the interior western US, with the departing (warm) storm coming in from the southwest, while the new (cold) one is dropping in from the northwest. Unfortunately (for snow lovers), the new storm will make a right turn as it comes in and will end up too far to the southwest of us to give us a real dump like two years ago.

    Precipitation will gradually change from rain to snow (already happening in the higher foothills) as today progresses, reaching the lowest elevations this evening, and lasting off and on through the night and much of tomorrow before petering out. Best chances for snow to stick to the roads will be tomorrow morning, while the higher foothills will have messy roads from this afternoon thru much of tomorrow.

    Expected snowfall totals similar to last time: 6-12" in higher foothills, with best chances for a foot or more in Larimer County, yet again, and 2-6" in Front Range cities, highest amounts on the west side of towns. The air should remain moist & cloudy enough to prevent a clear night, so we may dodge a hard freeze (again) at lowest elevations, while the higher foothills may have one of those rare May days with temperatures staying below freezing all day tomorrow (and this afternoon), unless the sun peaks thru the clouds for more than a few minutes. This should be a productive storm for the Front Range mountains as well, keeping skiable conditions alive for at least another week above 10K.

    The pattern remains unsettled enough that I could see issuing one last PSA before May is over,
    and delaying our wildfire season just a little while longer -

    Cheers,

    Klaus

    P.S.: PSA#10 verified well (6"+ in Fort Collins, 4" in Boulder, 1" at DIA; up to about 16" around Estes Park, and 5-10" in the higher foothills of Boulder and Jefferson County). Higher up, 2-4" of moisture translated into several feet of snow around Rocky Mountain National Park, as well as the Park and Elk Range, a much appreciated boost after a lackluster April.

    Yes I saw the lights getting really dim and killed the main breaker ASAP since that low voltage can wreak havoc. I haven't found any casualties here (yet) but I just looked at the Hempys transfer switch again and I'd say it's one. I did not touch anything there but my hands still smell faintly like a resistor roast if you know what I mean.

    The Bar-K weather station took a minor hit as well.
    The GFCI outlet that the weather server and web cams connect to were indeed "tripped" during the outage.
    Thanks Klaus for the heads up. Station is back up.

    Good work John that was my first question to Sally ... are the circuits affected the same as the generator supplies power to ?
    Seems only some of them got fried?
    Phil and Sol's generator - yesterday sounded BAD then OK.
    I bet it has something to do with the way the power failed....gradually.
    Our lights were faintly glowing for a few minutes initially. Coffee maker was growling and humming as I disconnected it.
    Brown out instead of black out never good.

    Hempys have a transfer switch that switches part of their house over to the generator power. That's the same part that's not working. I opened up the transfer switch cover, things smell like they overheated inside. I was able to get them a bit of water pressure from our house but they will need a service call from Generac it seems.
