At the moment we have more snow falling which means that travel conditions will be deteriorating. Yesterday was the best the roads on Palomar have been all week and yet one of the drivers still managed to encounter an icy patch that sent their car off of the road. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
Be careful out there. We want our visitors to have visits that are enjoyable, educational and safe.
In other news, we had a nice padded envelope that just came in the mail. Inside were 21 photos from the 1930s on Palomar. Many of them are photos of the construction of the big dome that are new to me. One of the new ones is this picture of the completed open dome sitting on a snowy plain. The view today would be somewhat similar if it were not so foggy. Of course, we seldom have the dome open in the daytime.
Look for some of the dome construction photos to be posted here next week.
