8:58 a.m. The passenger window of a parked car was smashed to bits.

10:29 a.m. A driver on Echo Lake Road was sprayed with flying snow by a man operating a snow blower. The angry driver consequently pulled over, hopped out of his truck and started yelling. In defense, the man blowing snow pulled out his pistol. With the help of deputies, the situation was settled peaceably.

10:29 a.m. Someone with missing crampons thinks that there were probably stolen out of their rental car.
