Even after 50 years this picture still gets to me.

And if you're curious about the launch vehicle, here's a very clear picture of all the companies involved.

Would be an amazing view. Nothing on the moon for size reference, but the earth would look four times bigger than the moon looks to us. Assuming of course, that the distance from the earth to the moon is the same as the distance from the moon to the earth.

Just had the best shopping experience at Stater Bros. EVER! Easy parking, hardly anyone in the store, no lines. Seemed like mostly locals. Nice convo with cashier Ms. Sherry who just got her electricity and cable back on in Fawnskin.

If you want to post productive suggestions to help people that's awesome, we're all for it and that's what this is for! But the past few days has been nothing but whining about traffic and how much Big Bear sucks and how glad folks are to be moving out. Do whatcha go to do, the rest of us are moving forward with or without you to try and create a resolution that will better our valley for everyone.

I get that, but people coming up here and that live DTH need to see these conversations so they know what go’s on up here from a local’s perspective so they know what creates issues. I see it as an educational tool. I’ve been using this site since 2007 and I use it because I know I can have those conversations with other locals in an easy and quick way. Navigating deep into the website to post something that 10% of people go see is pointless in my humble opinion, but whatever man.....will do.

Quiet,slow day in Crestline.Main streets low traffic and look good on the cams.Sky getting grey,sun in and out.Very quiet holiday weekend.

Feb 17 : 10:56am
So sorry. I asked an honest question. I have seen all kinds of lengthy convo's on here so I wasn't sure why some were ok and some weren't. I'd never seen anyone told to move their convo elsewhere until this weekend. There aren't any rules posted so the only way to find out is to ask questions. Didn't mean to upset anyone. No more questions!

Thanks for that info Benny. Ice dams urgg.
