Tech Support is SO Important!

It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of IoSafe. I’m a even bigger fan of their tech support! We had this weird power surge Sunday with the storm. I say weird it popped just one circuit breaker that had no load on it. Some time later, I went to get images out to a client and found I couldn’t talk to my IoSafe 1515+. Tried all the normal things and couldn’t connect. I’m not a Network guy so I was totally lost but I didn’t panic cause I knew I had IoSafe Tech Support behind me. I called them and they quickly figured out the problem and I’m back to work. The issue? All I can figure is that weird power surge somehow got through all the surge protectors and nailed my hub. The Tech Support knew how to run the test to verify and in minutes I was functioning. It’s such a small and simple thing but it’s a biggie. The moral of the story, in buying...

New Record Ya Baby!

Ya baby, we’ve set a new January snowfall record here in Mammoth. After the four feet dumped yesterday, we’ve received 241 inches of snow this month with a season total of 344″ so far! The view you see here is from our second story deck looking UP at the snow in the front meadow. UPS parks in front and we CAN’T see the truck! We are totally OK, well dug out and going about enjoying paradise! Ya...

Who Loves 11 Feet of New Snow?

Our 12yr old Beagle, Sadie that’s who! As we clear walks and drive, she’s right there nose down in the white stuff pushing through and sniffing all the way. There are times with the powder we’ve received, all we see is a bump in the snow like a lump under a carpet moving along. Oh, the simple...

Rockin & a Rollin in the Sierra

Yep, we’ve had a pretty cool swarm the past eight hours (over one hundred over 1.0 and 18, 3.7 to 5.7). Many have emailed (thank you!) to see if we were effected. Because of where the house is, we have the really cool (at least I think so) ability to hear the earthquakes often just before we feel them. This last week, we’ve actually heard them but not felt a thing which is weird. The swarm we had this morning upset our Sadie who crawled into bed and other than that, we just rode them out (of course, had to level prints, again!). Centered just northeast of us in the Bodie Hills, earthquakes are pretty common here so while the numbers sound scary, in reality, it’s just a part of life. Thanks to all who touched...
