I read that some people already enjoy the new “high” speed Frontier DSL and called Frontier to see what’s going on. They said it’ll “probably” be another 3 weeks to have all of Meadview on fiber optics. I was really hoping that for once we wouldn’t be last out here in LMC / Unit 7, but I suppose that’s just how it is.
Yesterday internet and DSL were out all day and if finally came back on in the evening, only to go out again around 7:30 am this morning. Friday night was one of the worst wind storms we’ve had in a while, so I wasn’t too surprised about the outage yesterday. Maybe they’re still fixing stuff today.
Here’s the forecast for this week:
We’ll see how that turns out. I have countless boxes full of stuff to sell at the Saturday parking lot sales at the Collectors Corner and the last two Saturdays we got rained out.
I’ve been wanting to check out Burro Creek for years. Incredibly, a resident SHOT at kayakers and held them hostage. http://kdminer.com/news/2017/feb/07/mcso-man-shoots-burro-creek-kayakers-says-they-tre/ BURRO CREEK – A Wikieup man is in jail after he allegedly shot at kayakers on Burro Creek Saturday.

Here are some new pictures of the Joshua Tree massacre on Pierce Ferry and Greggs Hideout (Antares on the other side of Pierce Ferry.)

I will do more research and… Continue Reading… Continue Reading
Updated 2/6/17: It is so frustrating to have so many cloudy days. Last week we had one really nice day, I think on Wednesday, and Saturday also wasn’t bad, but we were seriously sprayed. Yesterday and today it was cloudy most of the day. Depressing! Update 6/12/17: Last Thursday was another very nice day, but… Continue Reading
Here is Rick’s tax bill: EVERYBODY pays into the Fire District Assistance Fund. I do NOT know what happens with this money, but as you can see it’s very insignificant, under $10 for a $1,158 tax bill. And that’s ALL most Meadview residents pay. The $323.44 is the tax for our LMRFD fire district (Dolan… Continue Reading
Close call on 1/21/17, it looks like the 5 horses survived. Wouldn’t it be something if our fire district LMRFD sent out press releases and posted videos as the Yucca fire district? Yucca has to be tiny compared to LMRFD! Why can THEY do it? My recent offer for help with their website was politely… Continue Reading

Update 1/23/17 5 PM: Some of the cards fried when the power went out and they are working on it, hoping service will be restored tonight. ——————————————————————–… Continue Reading
