I've been meaning to research and write about the California homeless camps. It's upsetting to hear about people losing their children, pets and vehicles. Hard to believe.
I would MUCH rather stay on public land in the desert and do my own thing than live in a government camp/jail.
BLM camping is free for 14 days and they have some special long term camping permits.
I've never seen that much snow here and usually it melts within hours. I took the picture yesterday and now we're on day TWO after a snowstorm with still about 5 inches of snow on the ground. The solar panels were all clear this afternoon, don't like running the generator.
We had over a foot of snow yesterday morning, but since it was a warm sunny day, the snow melts pretty fast.
