Web Cam

Live streaming web cam is a hassle on my browser, so I have removed it for now - you can see it by clicking on this link.

Argghh Oh

An October weekend, and it is a long way to send a truck to clear the top few kms of the Argo section of road. Just hoping that the McKinney and Baldy roads will get some attention before the road bed freezes. Looking for Argo and Emcon graders to tackle the washboard patches.

Emcon Midway

Break-in, theft and vandalism at Emcon Midway.


Sunday Afternoon


Calm after the storm...........

Yesterday's storm continued into the night, and the settled measurement this morning is 15cm. The sun is hitting Baldy now, and there should be some great photo ops, but I prefer the cosy cabin.

Let it snow!

It was overcast when I left this morning around 8:30, I got soaked working at the Community Garden, and as I headed back up the hill around 11:00, it was snowing heavily - as low as the McCuddy Creek Ranch.

There is snow on the road , and accumulation so far is more than 7cms - forecast is to snow all day. It may well be here to stay now.

A little frost up top.

Replacements on site for the tire eaters.........




A fun place to work..............

At one time I used to produce a slideshow for the end of season staff gathering. Baldy has for the most part been regarded as a great, fun place to work. The management team is committed to a return to the good Baldy working environment.

Ugly night on the mountain..........

It's wet, it's dark, and it's foggy. The last few kms of the drive home tonight were very slow - trying to see where the edge of the road was. My mirrors and back-up camera were useless in trying to back up the driveway.

October 18th is a turning point date in the back of my mind, since the year the valley temperature plunged, and part of the apple crop was frozen on the trees.

My wood is split and under the deck, outside stuff put away; Let it Snow!
