Back in 1949-1950, a new fire station/police station/jail was built on the north side of Big Bear Blvd. at Knickerbocker Rd. A young Dennis Knickebocker (Bills Grandson) along with his dad Harold (a fireman) planted a pine tree in front of the fire station. Even when this building was demolished in 2001, the tree remained. However last weeks rain/wind event knocked over the nearly 70 year old tree. Here's to you Dennis......... Still remembered and missed.

Though I never met Dennis in real time, I felt we got to know each other pretty well on SCM. I so miss his posts about the Big Bear I first met in the 50's and got to know in the 60's. I am happy to see that he is remembered!

How sad. Nearly a year ago we lost a legend and now this tree. Dennis’s wisdom and knowledge of Big Bear and the valley is missed greatly by so many. He was such a valuable asset to SCM. RIP BG

This is the tree a few years after it was planted by Harold and Dennis Knickerbocker.

Entirely different topic, I have I missed the opening of the annual snow pool?

For comparison, Crestline (nearest official particulate monitor) has recorded a mere 5 days of "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups". Ozone is a different story...

Mammoth Lakes has had over 10 days of "Hazardous" air quality. It's had an additional 25 days of "Very Unhealthy" and 40 days of "Unhealthy". Basically an entire season of astronomically bad air quality.

If Bishop and Mammoth is anything like it was a month and a half ago, it was clouded in smoke, along with June Lake.
