Another use for a Real Estate Sign

In case it’s missing,
I used your sign as emergency detour for down power lines. Then left it to SDGE . I’ll look when snow lets up.

Oh my, so many trees and power lines down in multiple places from this storm! Lots of firewood to glean all around this mountain. Lots of bounders have found their way in the roads. This has been quite a storm with more promised.

A sincere thanks for all the extra work to the fire department, County Road crews and all neighbors who have worked together to start the clean up and make our wonderful little community what it is.

I heard about one of our very fortunate neighbors getting out of his car just before it unfortunately became a pancake. Wonderful timing, but so sorry about his car.

When I got this note from Mark with his creative use of one of my signs, I did have to smile. Great idea to block the road a bit to help make the downed power line situation out of Birch Hill safer for all the rest of you folks. Glad my sign came in handy.

Got a text from Fred with Western Broadband about 8:20 pm. He was just able to get through to one of his internet areas needing repair and internet on the east end of Crestline will be back up and running as soon as possible. Fred is working on it. Aren’t you thankful YOU aren’t out there in this storm?

Thanks to everyone who IS. You are all appreciated!

Bonnie Phelps, appreciating the warm fire!


  1. Bonnie, can you put me in touch with the person whose car was crushed by a boulder just after he got out it?
