Top 5 Reasons Why You Need a Realtor

Top 5 Reasons You Need a Realtor

Winds Shift Friday – Rim Fire Smoke Has Now Arrived At Bass Lake

August 31st, 2013

From Judy at Yosemite Sierra Visitor’s Bureau:

 

Roads:  Attached

Weather:  Attached

20% chance of thunderstorms beginning today through Monday

 

What can I say except “I’m sorry.”

 

After 10 days of telling folks there’s been no smoke in Yosemite Valley . . . the smoke has arrived. Here’s the link to the High Sierra webcam:  www.yosemiteconservancy.org/webcams/high-sierra

 

We also have a lot of smoke in the Oakhurst area, and I assume that extends over to North Fork and down to Coarsegold.

 

Only road closure still is Hwy 120. There is NO access to Highway 395/Lee Vining/Mono Lake/Mammoth Lakes/South Lake Tahoe via Tioga Road. Tioga Road will remain closed through Labor Day at least.

 

I sent out a map showing alternate routes yesterday. If you need a copy of that, let me know.

 

All Yosemite Valley facilities, as well as those at Glacier Point, Wawona and Mariposa Grove are open for business as usual. There has been virtually no degradation of air quality except in the immediate area of the fire in the extreme northwest corner of the park (the Big Oak Flat entrance area). Although the fire has consumed some 193,000 acres to this point (8/29), only 45,000 of those are in Yosemite, and virtually all of those are in wilderness area. **Visit the links at the end of this report for extensive information about the fire and about conditions in Yosemite**

***Sonora Rim Fire*** WE NEED HELP!

August 23rd, 2013

Sonora Rim Fire Folks in Need of Our Help & Support

from Sue Carner

Sonora Rim Fire August 23, 2013

Sonora Rim Fire August 23, 2013 Click for Inciweb

We don’t have emergencies like this very often but we need help, food, water, and probably additional funds for this fire for the fire people and the displaced residents.

There is a shelter at Sonora fairgrounds which you can get to by Hwy 49 and up from the valley hwy 120. The blockage is at or above the intersection of 49 & 120. American Red Cross is handling the shelter and the District 4A1 Lions are handling the kitchen.

PDG Tom Panhallegon (Sonora Lions) and his club have handled it so far but they will need help cooking and serving. PLEASE do not just show up. CALL PDG Tom (209) 694-5191 or his wife ZC Wendy Dart (209) 406-5015. He will have 3 shifts a day: 7 AM to Noon; Noon to 4 PM; 4 PM to 9 PM.

Per Red Cross, they have food through Sunday already donated for lunch and dinner. Priority is breakfast and dinner so they will probably need breakfast foods. Definitely need cooks and servers. Also need kitchen utensils, but Red Cross is looking into donations. If you plan to cook, might be smart to bring your own utensils.

You will probably have to park away from the fairgrounds as it may be parking for fire equipment.

Crane Valley Dam Seismic Retrofit Complete Dam Crest Now Open

April 25th, 2013

Crane Valley Dam Crest

PG&E is pleased to announce the completion of the Crane Valley Dam Seismic Retrofit Project and reopening of the Dam Crest pedestrian and bike trail access. The Crane Valley Dam Seismic Retrofit Project upgraded the dam to meet current federal and state seismic standards preventing downstream flooding in the event of a major earthquake and safeguarding the North Fork and downstream communities.

As the successful Seismic Retrofit Project is now complete, the focus returns to the recreation activities which bring thousands of people to Bass Lake every year for the scenery, fishing, boating and swimming. PG&E is working hard to help Bass Lake return back to its natural habitat with the completion of this project.

PG&E is truly in partnership with Bass Lake and surrounding communities. Crane Valley Dam and Bass Lake supply cost-effective and clean renewable energy, flood protection, habitat for fish and wildlife and for the community — provides public recreation areas which drive this local economy.

PG&E is committed to long term restoration efforts around the dam and Wishon Quarry sites. The 54-acre quarry site is being carefully restored with more than 30,000 trees planted as part of a plan to replenish the area with native vegetation. Additionally, PG&E committed to stock Bass Lake with high quality catchable and trophy rainbow trout. The first few fish stockings already occurred adding over 4,000 pounds of catchable and trophy rainbow trout added to the lake to date. Another 10 fish stockings are scheduled through May 2014 which adds another 13,000 pounds of high quality rainbow trout to Bass Lake.

The Crane Valley Dam Seismic Retrofit Project is a great example in working collaboratively with regulatory agencies and local community stakeholders to solve issues and meet different needs. We thank the Bass Lake and surrounding communities for their support helping make this a successful project.

We hope this summer brings a new wave of tourism to Bass Lake to enjoy this improved resource for the community.
