U.S. snowboarder Jamie Anderson won the women’s snowboard slopestyle competition at the Winter Olympics in South Korea on Monday, successfully defending the gold medal she won at the Sochi Olympics in 2014. Anderson won after high winds delayed the competition at Phoenix Snow Park – and the conditions almost wrecked her medal-winning performance. “I wanted to do a double nine [trick] on my first run and I went for it and realized I wasn’t going to clear the jumps. Thankfully somehow I connected with my lion power and found [my] feet,” Anderson said, in comments transcribed by the Olympics’ news service. The strong wind also forced a change in format: instead of having three runs to attain a best score, the athletes were given just two tries. It turned out that Anderson, 27, needed only one: her first run netted a score of 83.00 – easily the best of the field, with the other podium finishers scoring below 75 points. Finish reading here

 

Once a picture of planned suburbia, the neighborhood is barren now. All 1,300 homes burned during a few overnight hours in October, a firestorm sweeping through with a mix of high winds and flame so violent that it pushed parked cars blocks away.
But in a gesture of resilience, the neighborhood threw a houseless holiday party last month, trucking in snow from Lake Tahoe, displaying a Santa’s sleigh and dangling battery-powered lights from utility poles. It was a sign the starter-home neighborhood would return from a fire that destroyed more propertythan any other in California history and left 22 people dead.

Much of the expected exodus is the result of housing costs. The flames destroyed 3,000 homes and apartments in Santa Rosa alone, or 5 percent of the city’s housing stock. The sudden loss has rippled across a region that already had some of the nation’s highest costs of living. Since the October fire, median home prices and rents, driven largely by the thousands of displaced residents, have spiked in counties across the North Bay region, some by as much as 30 percent.
“I hope that we can get the vast majority of these residents to stay in Santa Rosa, but we had a huge housing problem even before this,” said Chris Coursey, the city’s mayor. “This has created a kind of a two-pronged problem for the city: We need to help 3,000 people get back to where they want to be, but we also need to concentrate on making sure that five years from now we’re not back to 2017.”
