No good deed goes unpunished.

Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.

Where's my kayak!!

What doesn't kill me does NOT make me stronger. It makes me anxious, bitchy, and vulnerable...but nobody wants to see that embroidered on a pillow...Lisa Kogan...thx LXL...sorry i stole it from you! Ok, maybe I'm not sorry :-P

But, it doesn't take long and it'll dry up. I remember one year with an early snow in Big Bear, while the mountains still were snow capped, Lucerne got a downpour and it filled up. Driving by, you got the reflection of the snow peaks of Big Bear in Lake Lucerne - Lucerne Valley actually looked like Lucerne

That disappeared a few years ago, and wasn't there a "No Fishin" sign?

Why are the posts tagged July 25th when today is the 24 th?

Jul 24 : 12:14pm
So, it is grey water then?

Jul 24 : 12:10pm
Yes, it is the treated water from the sewage treatment facility. There is that hillside that is somewhat visible from the 330, but also a pipeline that drops down into the next drainage to the east and that area has a much larger rainbird setup.

Thanks for the information. We've been full-time on the mountain for sixteen years and never saw it before...

Also for anyone interested Sand Fire just lost air support in one division due to use of a drone.

I was going to say it is too low for SV. It is in Fredalba. Seen it many times.

Jul 24 : 11:54am
I know that it is the Running Springs sewage treatment plant, just below Smiley Park/Fredalba. I always figured it's just them getting rid of treated water.

They could be working on a new snowmaking system, I know snow valley pulled out all their air/waters years back and went with fan guns. Maybe they're putting them back in and testing... seems a little more logical.

Jul 24 : 11:35am
Massive. The system looks large from miles away.

That's bizarre. Maybe they're afraid of a fire and watering things down, still a waste of water...

Jul 24 : 11:32am
From below, it looked like it could have been in the area of Snow Valley so I thought it might have been their snowmaking equipment. Not sure why...

Jul 24 : 11:32am
Sprinklers were on again this morning, too!

Benny (N6BWX)
Jul 24 : 11:28am
Sounds like someone was maybe testing their fire suppression system? There was no active burn so I'm not sure why they'd leave them on so long. That's a pretty big waste of water...

Jul 24 : 11:25am
Hi folks, I'm looking for some info. Last Friday I took 330 DTH and saw what looked like several huge 'sprinklers' on the scale of hire hoses shooting off in different directions. When I came back UTH a couple of hours later they were still going. What was I seeing?
