This is our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe for this altitude, but we prefer ours soft & chewy for munching or dunking:

Make sure you use unsalted butter when it's called for. Baking soda needs acidity to work, thus the ACV. :-)

Pie in the Sky is available at Big Bear Library. Someone gave it to me as a gift and it’s a good cookbook.

Got my mom's bread machine a while back, ive had good luck with the lighter breads per recipe, not so much with the heavier ones.

Bread making at altitude is a struggle and an art. Use any 'sponge' method- proofing the yeast first. I have never used a bread machine but I know it requires more time to knead it then dth. Mine are usually twice as tall as the pan. (I also think using powdered milk helps the texture) Tassajara Bread Book = best book ever for making great breads!

When i got the bread machine a series of 5 recipe books came with it. Most recipes call for quick rising yeast, all ive had to do was make sure everything was at room temperature and use warm water when starting a loaf, super easy to do, usually about 2 or 3 hours once you add everything and start it up. Hard part is not peeking once its going...

As far as BVES wiring goes, up here in Surgarloaf it looks like something out of the 1800's with wires running every which way, My house is fed from a spice off of wires down the middle of the street. I would much prefer if it all was underground.

I'll try to find the legal discussion on this and repost it here.

Naw, it's specific to the threat, could be anywhere from hours to days. In our area it would generally be less than 24 hrs. Up in norcal they had had a multiday event so the outage duration followed.

This is not just a few hours folks. The new law prescribes very specific actions that a power company must follow once they've shut down. None of those actions can take place in a few hours- more like a few days.

ButlerPeakFire - What took them so long to getting around to figuring out they needed to upgrade their system to be less prone to starting fires during conditions that we've been seeing, well....forever?

BVS follows SCE standards and works with the same contract design firms. Mine being one of them. They are currently starting to upgrade their systems for covered conductor. This should help strengthen their system against outages and phase to phase arcing that can create wildfires.

Yeah, it's all more or less the same thing... thankfully, we don't get the real strong Santa ana winds as in the valleys, passes and canyons.

Oh, I forgot about BVES. Thsts the same thing Edison has going. I think its being mandated by the PUC. Two weeks ago Edison had lots of warnings and some turn offs. This week there are warnings but not in this area. Some in San Berdo though.

We're not SCE, we're Bear Valley Electric Service (Big Bear Valley). This is the new standard to try and prevent the ignition of wildfires during times of high fire danger.

It's a proactive approach to protect life & property. [Click Here]

0n the Edison outage information web page, I dont see any of our nearby areas currently being considered for wind related shutdowns. Am I wrong.

I am a bit concerned that people are "normalizing" the behavior of the power company's potential shutdown of our power by comparing that to TRUE preparedness for disasters! This is a power company created crisis, NOT a natural disaster.

Remember we went through this same fire drill less than a week ago and power wasn't cut, this will be a weaker Santa Ana event, so I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. Always be prepared just in case!

I'll think you'll be ok for a few hours if you plan ahead... Imagine a winter storm with trees down again that takes the power out for days. At least this you can see coming and prepare for.

Boots, do you have a generator?

being prepared for those other things is not the same as cutting power if you have a well and livestock to water!!
