It is Tow Truck Time on the Mountain

Yes, Palomar does have a beautiful snow today.  If you are wanting to come up to enjoy our snow, here are some tips for you to make it a better beginning for Happier New Year for all:

We also have had more than our normal share of tow trucks for this snow. Many cars sideways in the roads yesterday.  Saw tow trucks getting vehicles up from below the side of the road, and those vehicles are sometimes still drivable.  But, one  of the trucks I passed yesterday was pulling a fancy new car, looking like it went sideways into a tree.  Ouch.  It is still below 30 degrees and even though the roads are plowed, or in some places it looks completely clear, there is a lot of ‘black ice’.  What is ‘Black Ice’?  It looks like puddles or water running across the road.  When it is below freezing, it is slick ice and can ruin your whole day.

Here are some tips for people wanting to come to the snow:

4 Wheel Drives with good snow tires and chains can save you a lot of money in tow bills and car repair. (Often chains are required).

Please bring a big trash bag up to take your trash back with you as we don’t have trash cans out and about.

Most of Palomar is private property. Keep in mind the Golden Rule and ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’, respecting the ‘private property’ signs.

Make it a great New Year!
