Drive Slow in this Icy Weather (Photos of Crash on 36 Yesterday)


Be careful on those icy roads roads today. Ice on roads will be a problem for awhile.

The National Weather Service predicts,

Frigid low temperatures are expected again tonight into early Saturday morning…Temperatures will fall into the teens and 20s across the interior with the coldest temperatures in northeast Mendocino and Trinity counties. Temperatures will likely remain in the lower 30s at the immediate coast, but nearby in valleys protected from the wind lows will fall into the upper 20s. This includes places like Fortuna, Cutten, Blue Lake, and Boonville.

This vehicle went off the road yesterday on Hwy 36 just out of Larabee Valley about 2 p.m. According to photographer Laurie Jenson, the driver “lost it and high-centered going backwards down the bluff….[A] good Samaritan came along and hooked on to him  with chains and got him  out.”

(Thanks to all the good Samaritans in this world!)




  • 25 deg in Laytonville last night. Crystal clear weather. Stayed at the family ranch. I saw the most outstanding fireworks show that I’ve ever seen. Plus, there was numerous large explosions. Most likely dynamite. Those Layton-villains know how to do it up right!


    An appropriate song for the weather….

      “Drive like you wanna live.” Seriously, I love it. That means Slow Down if the horse trough is iced over. It’s not July anymore, ToTo. Maybe: drive like you wanna stay alive. Drive to stay alive.
