There's a 50 percent or better chance that they will launch within the first 5 minutes of the window, and usually right at the start of the window. If they don't it's because of weather or technical issues.

it went at 12:33 AM Wed morning - I got a decent shot and will have better once the rest of the images are stitched together. This was from 219 miles away and fighting a full moon.

i dont understand people why is the stay at home order good for us but not the flatlanders its ridiculous and why would the news station advertise snowplay?

Mark is dumb as a rock.

I sent an email to them.

Guess Mark didn't get the Governor's Essential-Travel-Only-Stay-at-Home- Shelter-in-Place memo. Shame on him.

Just wondering, does the sheriff have any juristiction/influence for areas in the SBNF? I don't think so. FS staff are short-handed, but if they could actually enforce and hand out tickets (which I normally disapprove of in general), it could help curb the influx of flatlanders

brief lapse of judgement...

During normal circumstances, KTLA tries to promote tourism for BB. I don't think Mark has ever experienced how crazy snowplay areas get up here, so im just taking this as brief in judegement due to being naive.

@ Christopher & McToddy, saw the same news, they suggested bringing kids up to play in the snow, maybe build a snowman, just make sure the snowmen are 6 feet apart...REALLY? And whereare they to play? Anywhere they find snow? SMH

One has to wonder what the local news stations' stake is in directing people up the mountain.

McToddy
Apr 07 : 09:21am
@Christopher Yeah, I saw the same thing. I pinged @ktlanews (via 'gram), but I have no idea if my dm will be seen. But at least it's better than not attempting to provide any feedback)

My Wife just told me Channel 5 KTLA just suggested a trip to the mountains this weekend for people with kids who are bored at home.
