A few more weeks to fiber optics Frontier DSL

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,Continue Reading

Another storm — another Frontier outage

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 stuffContinue Reading

Live updates: Evacuations below Oroville Dam

It’s hard to believe that Lake Mead also overflowed and the road over the dam had to be closed — in the 90s. Sure hope the Oroville Dam will hold until they can make the repairs.

New pictures of the Joshua Tree massacre

Here are some new pictures of the Joshua Tree massacre on Pierce Ferry and Greggs Hideout (Antares on the other side of Pierce Ferry.)  They’re done drilling the new well and I’ve been told they’ll keep on clearing going up Patterson Grade, but I have no first hand knowledge.  I will do more research andContinue ReadingContinue Reading

70s in the forecast – FINALLY!

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, butContinue Reading

LMRFD fire district tax explained

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 (DolanContinue Reading

Truck v. horse trailer on I-40

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 politelyContinue 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
