Downieville is not quite open. The taqueria is closed. The River Inn is not going to open at all this year. And Yuba Outfitters is renting e-mtbs, but not going to run shuttles. But you can still get a Coke at the market and the pizza place is offering carry-out.
But being in Downieville for a brief, but beautiful moment, the world almost seemed normal.
Not the new normal, but actually normal.
