Back in 1949-1950, a new fire station/police station/jail was built on the north side of Big Bear Blvd. at Knickerbocker Rd. A young Dennis Knickebocker (Bills Grandson) along with his dad Harold (a fireman) planted a pine tree in front of the fire station. Even when this building was demolished in 2001, the tree remained. However last weeks rain/wind event knocked over the nearly 70 year old tree. Here's to you Dennis......... Still remembered and missed.

Though I never met Dennis in real time, I felt we got to know each other pretty well on SCM. I so miss his posts about the Big Bear I first met in the 50's and got to know in the 60's. I am happy to see that he is remembered!

How sad. Nearly a year ago we lost a legend and now this tree. Dennis’s wisdom and knowledge of Big Bear and the valley is missed greatly by so many. He was such a valuable asset to SCM. RIP BG

This is the tree a few years after it was planted by Harold and Dennis Knickerbocker.

I saw it blown over also thought of Knick and wonder if a time capsule is in the roots

As usual, Edison is trying to collect money when they haven't provided any electricity. No power since 9/9 and my bill ends 9/22 - they want the same amount of money as usual. Kiss my you know what Eddie!

The little truck with the dish on it is working pretty good for cell service but there is no Wi-Fi or Frontier internet. I'm burning through the data on my cell phone plan! And I'm stuck watching whatever TV I can find on antenna. No firestick 😒

I do have a generator - run it a few times a day for coffee, TV, phones, fridge and 1 light. A lot of people didn't come home yet because they don't have a generator or don't want to pay for the propane required for the whole house ones.

Hey KrazyKristin! Do you have generator power for your home?? I am surprised the power is still out. I guess a lot more infrastructure got compromised than I thought. Good to hear from you!

Still waking up to the gentle sound of generators here in the Dark Ages, aka Forest Falls. No one seems to know when power will be restored. Guess we're lucky to have homes left to power up huh?
