Here is what my place looks like. The picture with me is my paved driveway. The other photos are on my gravel road that I use to access the lower and far side of my property. Much more damage elsewhere.

I posted it just as I was leaving a coffee shop in Auburn where I went to get internet. I guess I forgot to upload the pics before signing off. Updated post from a coffee shop in Meadow Vista. No power, internet and reliable cell service at home sucks. Fortunately I can watch the news and other TV by running Dish Network off my generator.

Had a tree branch come through the roof of the shed, but o think Jeff wins the storm damage competition.

Grass Valley update. Starting day number five with no power. I had to clear eight down trees just to get out of my neighborhood. I have 10+ down trees across my property. One tree took out our Ford Explorer. Totally awesome snowstorm. Lots of carnage for the trees. But that’s mother nature. The Jeep saved the day for me, lots of snow wheeling  to refill on gas for the generators and getting food for the family. Can you say Fabulous snow wheeling!

That stinks Josh. We are lucky that we didn't have any structural or vehicle damage. Still no power as of Friday night.

I have a propane/gas generator if you need another one to get you by... I'm about 5 miles from Auburn if you need it

Understood Mike. Going on 10 days with no commercial power. My generator is holding out. Thanks for the offer. I appreciate it. 

It’s an adventure. Learning how to prepare better for the next time.

Power restored after thirteen days. What a ride!

Thank you to PG&E and all their workers, contractors, and support staff. That was one crazy storm!
