FENTON LAKE UPDATE…Feb 28…Winter Weather Has Slowed The Thaw…No Open Water
February 28, 2015
Winter is not over yet … I guess we can file this under ‘be careful what you wish for’. We have had nearly two feet of much needed snow over the last 48 hours here at Amanda’s in La Cueva… with more on the way. The forecast is calling for more accumulating snows through Wednesday, March 4th. We may end up with over three feet before it is all said and done. This certainly puts a damper on business here at the store short term, but it is certainly a blessing in the long term. It’s a beautiful thing. Amanda’s Jemez Mountain Country Store is open 363 1/2 days a year….closing on Christmas Day and a half day on Thanksgiving. Our winter hours are 8:30 am to 6:30pm every day (effective Sunday November 2nd). Come on up and say hi. We’d love to see you.
As of Monday December 15, 2014 8:00 am the fire danger within the Santa fe National Forest, Jemez Ranger District, has been changed to LOW There are currently no fire restrictions.
****CAMPGROUND ALERT**** Fenton Lake State Park (6 spaces) and Vista Linda Campground (13 spaces) remain open for camping throughout the winter. San Antonio and Jemez Falls Campgrounds are closed for the winter. Redondo and Paliza Campgrounds remain closed.
