A View from Sierra County

Small town life and politics, lots of knitting, and travels with and without my five burros

Location: In the Sierra Nevadas, United States

I blog about rural living and social issues, and the creativity that comes from knitting, as well as post random pictures of the Sierras and my burros. "In order to be an artist, one must be deeply rooted in the society" - Simone de Beauvoir

sun, finally

Well, the sun has deigned to shine, lifting the mood, which has been pretty grim around here. Looks like our county is imploding on itself as land values outstrip wages and decent jobs are going unfilled, but nobody can afford to move in.

Yesterday, we experienced first-hand the very real effects of cuts to county services... the students from the Alleghany area were late getting to school because the road wasn't plowed. The Public Works Department has been saying since the summer that they wouldn't have the money this year.... guess we will be more thankful than ever for a sunny day to get out and take care of things this winter.
