Good news bluemeadow.
bullet bluemeadow on Friday 28 December 2018 - 20:04:09
they all arrived safely, no problems just a bit of traffic. YAY!

Happy New Years early to my SCM friends! Enjoying AZ and had NO idea how cold it gets where we are at. 32 degree mornings.

Don't get mad at me, get mad at those buildings for being there in the first place!
bullet bluemeadow on Friday 28 December 2018 - 17:58:46
Thanks guys, i'll let you all know what happened. I know I won't rest until i hear from them that they are somewhere warm safe and sound. And it's two hours later here! I'm from L.A. and my parents built the cabin in 1963 so this winter driving stuff and chains and getting up before dark is much more in my bones than theirs.
bullet ChattieKathie on Friday 28 December 2018 - 17:39:16
I would encourage your family to rest up in a hotel/motel for the night so that they could enjoy the beautiful scenery safely on the way up the hill, tomorrow.
bullet Christopher on Friday 28 December 2018 - 17:36:37
Best of luck to your friends. If you get the chance, just remind them upper Moonridge will be very icy after dark and they will manage if they're forewarned.
bullet bluemeadow on Friday 28 December 2018 - 17:15:47
Exactly. Some of them know much better and have mountain experience but the person in charge of this trip doesn't get it!! Perhaps that person will be a believer after this. I can only worry from a distance.
bullet Polar Orbit on Friday 28 December 2018 - 17:03:02
bluemeadow... Kind of like flying into Houston in July and renting a car without AC?
bullet Christopher on Friday 28 December 2018 - 17:02:41
There are lots of places in upper Moonridge where the Sun doesn't shine. Those places will be icy. The highway is dry and bare, but the further you get into Moonridge the more icy spots you'll find. Especially after dark. No chains = no brains. Sorry to have to say that.
bullet Quakes on Friday 28 December 2018 - 16:54:40
Benny, I meant to say the Big Bear area or near Big Bear. Sorry about that.
bullet bluemeadow on Friday 28 December 2018 - 16:51:18
i know and told them but...it's out of my control. They just flew in to LAX from Houston where we live. And rented a car. Other than that, does anyone know about upper Moonridge conditions?
bullet Minka on Friday 28 December 2018 - 16:49:49
Soooo right, L-Jill! Geez!
bullet Lumbe® Jill on Friday 28 December 2018 - 16:36:51
It's foolish and dangerous to travel in the mountains in winter without chains.
bullet bluemeadow on Friday 28 December 2018 - 16:09:18
How are the roads in upper moon ridge? Family coming in tonight in rent car ,near Villa Grove and Plumas court. any black ice to worry about - no chains.

24 mi NE puts it towards Johnson valley?

Did not feel anything in Fawnskin..
bullet Benny (N6BWX) on Friday 28 December 2018 - 15:56:43
Actually it was 24 miles NE of Big Bear, so we wouldn't have felt that....

IDK are you referring to Snow Valley?
bullet IDKnothin on Friday 28 December 2018 - 10:14:52
Fordswgg - for locals Valley is $32 M-F and $15 for night skiing. But the best deal for anyone is their 4 or 6 pack of tickets at $25 per ticket. Great place for beginners right now cause that’s is mostly the area that is open. Just on intermediate run with snow from the top of the Express.
bullet SnowAngel on Friday 28 December 2018 - 08:55:33
Two of the eagles in the nest for the last 20 minutes, and just left. But if you rewind you can see them both.
bullet Fordawgg on Friday 28 December 2018 - 08:43:37
Do the resorts offer any discounts for locals anymore they used to years ago... thank you in advance have a great day

Back in '15. The best since I've been out here {Dec. 1985...} was back in 1993.............even snowed out the Atlanta NASCAR race......tho I kept saying they could have had the race, but on snowmobiles! lol

Hey shovelhead, when was that? I lose track of the years.

And "Snowjam" was fun!
I think I posted some pics here from what we got. I'm about 45miles NE of Atl.

Speaking of chains...PO just pulled mine!
As a former BB/UTH resident I always lmao at they way folks down here panic if they forecast 4 flakes and a sleet pellet.
What the hell milk, bread and TP have to do with surviving winter is IDK, but you can guarantee that the shelves will be empty! lol
Then.....there's the driving/lack of driving skills. That's another gut buster of a laugh-fest!
I rode a Harley chopper to Chad's almost daily in the snow w/no probs. Have done the same here in NE Ga and folks look at me in amazement {or is that speechless for my insanity? lol}
Now I'm old and have stepped out of the saddle and have a 4x4 Ford Ranger. They're forecasting possible snow here this weekend....bring it on! My Ranger and our winch are looking to make some extra $$$.

Was it about three years when Atlanta got 2 to 3 inches of snow and it paralyzed the city for a week?

BBCPMF90 I think SSJ was actually downplaying it saying it wasn't that catastrophic.
I would say his timing was spot on!

Jan 21 : 09:02pm
So true SSJ, someone sneezes and we got us a mess on our hands! It's just the increase in population and resulting traffic...

FYI -- Chains Required Banner is still up but if you click on it you will see there are only 3 spots that have requirements and they are on the SR-173 and SR-189. All other roads are open with no chain restrictions.

Funny how back in 80s and 90s the plows would rarely go down your street, 75% of residents own a 2wd. People like my dad who would lie to chain control and tell them our used bald tires were snow rated. No traction control on cars, and yet everyone still got around. 38 and 18 backway never had chain control stations... back then R2 got rolled out only when the was over 6in. Crazy how times have changed.

We had family up for the weekend and left about 5 o’clock went through fine scan done 330 and it took us a little over two hours. Actually not as bad as I expected. That’s what you get for traveling on these holiday weekends, next year my husband and I are going to take the Tuesday off also so we can miss this traffic!

Sounds more like people who either past the limits of their skills or their automobiles. Both accounts in the chat box made it down successfully so obviously it CAN be done.
