Our water as been brown for a couple days. We have a newer well. House built in 2003.

Is this something we need to worry about and deal with or do we just need to wait a few more days for the brown to go away?

Our septic is on the other side of the property so Im not worried about that...

Watch her save democracy from those sneaky Russkies. Also, including a short film on the history of the Drive-in. I always enjoy some company. SvH

As said best from one of our previous counselors: "Did you know that you can get paid to live in and explore the Colorado wilderness? 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

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.

Sincerely,

Andrew

I have a high-end ping pong table that needs just a bit of TLC that I'm looking to give away. It includes all the equipment needed. You will need to come and get it. I'm guessing it just needs a couple of screws and adjustments. It's just too much wind where I live, any season, to reasonably play ping pong at my house. You can reach me at karaedin at yahoo .com

Hi Betty and Don, I like Dish, pay more than any sane person should. If you like all the local channels, all kinds of sports, like Cu football and basketball, rockies baseball, golf channel the 250 package has almost everything, comes with a dvr at extra cost. They keep upping their price. Oh they don't offer an All NFL package where you can watch every game, Direct TV does. Quite reliable, if you got electricity. They have newer receivers that I don't have. Hopper?

Betty, we have had Dish for many years but I have no particular loyalty to them. I would have switched but we can't get HD from Direct because their satelites are badly positioned for us. From everyting I know the two are pretyy equivalent and I would recommend making a decision based on lowest price for the programing you want. If you call Direct and tell them you will be firing them unless they can make you an offer you can't refuse, you may be able to get a good cost reduction. Dish has a Customer Loyalty department and I assume Direct does too. Those are the people you want to be talking to.

For comparison, we got a Dish package last year for $35/month for 2 years after I did what I just described. It is vey basic and has the local channels and a handfull of cable stations. We supplement that with Netflix and Amazon Prime (which we pay for anyway even if it didn't have TV programs). You may be able to get Netfkix etc. if your TV is internet capable. Otherwise, you will need an additional device like Apple TV or Roku or Amazon Fire TV.

Call me if you have questions: 3O3 44 four 8140.

Betty, I dumped satellite TV about 4 years ago. If you have internet service and a smart TV, you can stream your favorite TV programs ala carte. There are numerous options. You will lose local channels, but you can stream via your computer local news. If you're a sports fan, it's not so good.

On Saturday, I had a chance to talk with one of the CenturyLink folks that was working in town. This was right when we lost power on Saturday. He indicated that the dial tone service was on a battery backup that would last for just a little while and that DSL would drop when power was out.

Anyway... just a FWIW...

Free queen-sized pillowtop mattress, soft and squishy. This was a quality mattress nearly 10 years ago when it was new. It will be hauled off for disposal this Tuesday unless someone happens to want it. Could serve as a fine guest room bed if anyone happens to need one.

John, regarding the 'Klaus formula', a clarification: (1) I do repeated measurements on a white snowboard that I clear after each measurement during big storms (>12"), since you will get settling (and melting from below, it being late May); (2) this physical process is much more pronounced once you get into the 1m range like yesterday. For example, I was up to 24.7" in three measurements by noon yesterday, but the average snow depth was "only" 20", so a reduction of about 20% (fairly typical for that storm size, so perhaps your total was somewhere between 28-29"); after an additional 13.5" by 7pm, the snow depth had only increased to 29", so, compared to a total of 38.2" that fell, a 25% loss; overnight, I measured another 3.5" by 7am, but the snow had settled/partially melted from the warm ground to 27" (so the settling/melt tax was 35% of the fallen total of 41.7"). IOW, "size matters", and timing of the total depth measurement as well. When it snows as hard as yesterday, I typically measure once every 4-6h (the official guideline says once every six hours). BTW, there were at least two other reports around 42" with this storm (in CoCoRaHS), one in Allenspark and one north of Estes Park, confirming the epicenter of the storm being in Larimer County. And my 41.7" melted down to 4.05" of moisture, which is very high (especially for May), but not even close to the 63.5/7.34" that fell in that big one in March 2003. More than many of you ever wanted to know about this topic, sorry about the rambling message - Klaus (up at Bar-K)

Hi. When I left this morning around 8:45 I still didn't have power or phone (43 main street - lower main). If someone can post when all of Jtown has power that would be appreciated so I can leave Boulder and finish working from home. At least I got away with not needing to go to Denver since I thought there would be snow this morning. thanks! ced

We broke out of driveway and got down. We have power. School is on in Boulder and snow is melting fast down here. Saw some CenturyLink-ish trucks in town. Checked Century link website when I got down looks like they are thinking 1:00 for fix.

This is the message I got on their website:

Roads were pretty decent when I came up around 6:30. Big truck in the uphill ditch right on the big hairpin at the top of Elliot's pitch (2 mile mark of James Canyon drive). And I mean, right on that corner as you are coming up. He's got a signal triangle out behind him but otherwise not a great spot for a surprise, you won't see him until you are in the turn.

Downhill lane hadn't been plowed on James Canyon, so that was one lane below JT, backside of Olde Stage had some snow, everything else was just wet. 35.5 up here at the moment.

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!

Weather Underground currently has JT at 40" storm total through Friday. Put the scoop shovel by the door tonight and test your generator if you have one. With the amount of foliage on trees/shrubs and that much heavy wet snow expect significant limb & tree damage...

We are proposing to install a horseshoe pitch as shown in the survey link below. The proposal is for a 1-year trial period so everyone can experience how it works. After one year, the Town Board can reevaluate this plan.

Take the Horseshoe Survey here: https://goo.gl/forms/8LjsuixIzANOnXNm2

Date Due: Return by June 1 (before next Board meeting). Thank you!

Sincerely,

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

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!

Thank you for your interest!

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.

Large cinnamon bear seen in town this evening, second sighting in a week.

Luckily, everyone has removed attractants, put up their birdfeeders, cleaned and locked their vehicles, buried their compost, and assembled an artillery of appropriate aversives at their door.

Seems the forum is rather boring lately, maybe because censorship will never work in the long run. Ideas and opinions have to be expressed. Maybe I was wrong, but I thought this was a great place to get your ya say out. oops i clicked on submit

Kelley Trucking will be mobilizing and completing initial preparatory work on James Canyon Drive this week and next. It is unlikely you'll see any delays this week. Short (2 to 3 minute) delays could start next week. Longer delays won't likely start until the week of May 29, or possibly June 5 if Kelley runs into any issues. I'll update the website now. Have a good day. - Andrew

This morning going to town, about half way between the Ward bridge and Buckingham Park, I saw a big cinnamon colored bear coming up from the creek and walk right into a rather large culvert, pulled over, waited for a couple minutes, never saw it come out the high side. Multi use culvert, I guess. Safe crossing.

Random favor request.
 Does anyone have newspapers? I need a BUNCH of newspapers (a foot high stack would do) for a work project, and will come by your house to pick them up. I'll be leaving by 9:30AM today, will be back this evening, and need them by tonight. They will also be recycled
thanks

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!

I was down for the count and I missed Oak's book signing party at the Merc. on Wednesday...
I don't know what it's about, but coming from Oak it would most-likely be witty and inspirational, so we need to own a copy whatever it is!
We LOVE Oak (and Joy) and have gained MUCH from both of them during our time here!
Always happy to support artists/activists who bring so much to a community!
Congrats Oak!

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 from 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.

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.

For more information, contact Andrew Barth via email or call 303-441-1032. All current Boulder County Transportation project information is available at www.BoCoConeZones.com.
