A Tahoe man survived for seven days in the Sierra Nevada, hemmed in by deep snow after being led astray by his GPS.
Harland Earls, 29, visited friends in Grass Valley the weekend before the worst of a winter storm hit, according to a Sierra County Sheriff’s Office press release.
On Jan. 24, Earls headed for Truckee by way of Highway 49. Trusting his GPS when it indicated that Henness Pass Road was a shorter route, he changed direction.
Unaware that the road is not plowed and open only in the summer, he followed the device’s instructions and soon found himself stuck as the storm dumped 6 to 8 feet of snow.
After nearly a week without word from Earls,
Winter weather and temperatures in the single digits and below can pose a risk to both people and animals.
To minimize that risk, there are things you can do both before and during a winter weather event. These include:
Dress for success – To stay warm, be prepared to dress in layers. Consider wearing a base layer made of a material that wicks sweat off your skin, a middle layer that retains body heat, and if you go outdoors, an outer layer that shields you from wind and precipitation.
Cover up – In addition to layers, the National Weather Service advises wearing gloves, a hat (especially one that covers the face), and sturdy boots.
Winter car survival kit – If you must travel during extreme winter weather, the National Weather Service suggests being prepared by having a winter survival kit in your car that includes: jumper cables, flashlights with fresh
NBC Sports will take a look at the life, legacy and long-lasting impact of Dale Earnhardt who died 20 years ago this week on the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500 on Feb. 18, 2001. This is the third chapter in an oral history series that remembers “The Intimidator” though the voices of those who knew the seven-time Cup Series champion who remains one of the biggest icons in NASCAR history.”
Adjacent to the “deerhead shop” – an aluminum-sided inner sanctum of race cars surrounded by its owner’s trophy hunting-covered walls – Dale Earnhardt’s business empire started at a square maroon desk.
When Don Hawk joined Dale Earnhardt Inc in 1993 to help manage the appearances, branding and commercial opportunities for the seven-time NASCAR champion, his office primarily was in a converted brick farmhouse on Earnhardt’s sprawling property in Mooresville, North Carolina.
It’s where many major decisions were
We have a long-running theory that somehow the genes are just stronger in our favorite celebrities. Whether it be Reese Witherspoon giving birth to her almost-twin Ava or Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni inheriting her natural super modeling skills (and sharing the cover of Vogue) there must just be something different in the water in Hollywood. And now yet another mother-daughter duo has come to reach another level of #familygoals: Kate Moss and her daughter Lila. Lila walked the Fendi catwalk in Paris with her mother, and while she might only be 18, she’s already such a pro. Watch the sweet video below!
The two walked in Fendi’s Haute Couture Spring Summer 2021 runway show for Paris Fashion week. The show is described in Fendi’s Instagram caption as, “Drawing from seemingly diverse inspirations, from the visual language of Bernini’s marbles to Virginia Woolf’s time-traveling, gender-blurring novel Orlando, the show
Getting comfortable in his own skin. Jonah Hill reflected on the biggest “turning point” he had when it comes to body image, confidence and his sense of style.
The Mid90s director, 36, opened up about the comments he’s received about his body since his career first took off during a candid conversation with GQ magazine published on Monday, November 16. The California native has stepped into the fashion world with a new Adidas partnership — and hopes to encourage fans to express their individuality no matter their size.
“I think the biggest shift in my personal style was that I always had an interest in personal style and fashion, but I was always a bigger guy,” Hill explained. “It’s really hard when you’re overweight to dress a certain way, because clothes aren’t made for people who are overweight to have style. So, I think it surprises people. Even now, I’ll
