I was on my way up to Crescent City for a business class, passing through Arcata when I came to this patch of snow on 101. If the trees on the left side of the freeway weren’t there, you’d be able to see the ocean, so the elevation here is pretty low. I was surprised to see the snow down this low. It was just this one area, unfortunately Ferndale didn’t get any right in town. There was plenty of snow though at higher elevations.
The Small Business Development Center screwed up though by posting the wrong class on their web site, so after driving for two hours up to Crescent City I found that the class being offered tonight was the same class I just took a few days ago in Eureka. So I turned around and drove home..
When I got home there was a clear night out so Lori and I drove up to Monument to take pictures. I loaded my 645 medium format camera with a roll of film, first time I’ve shot film in at least a year. Night shots are still better on film, one of few strengths of film in my opinion. I set the camera for a 15 minute exposure to try to capture the star trails. About half way through the exposure the clouds rolled back in and at 13 minutes it started snowing. So I only got the one exposure and who knows how it’ll turn out. Might try it again tomorrow night if the weather holds.
