The shortest, warmest, most snowiest winter of my life.

I know it doesn’t sound like it makes sense, but it does, I swear.  Tahoe has some of the craziest winter weather I have ever seen.  It snows while it is sunny all the time.  Some locals will disagree with my opinion that Tahoe winter is not that cold, because I think one forgets (if one has ever experienced it at all) what it is like to have sleet all winter with frigid temperatures.  In Tahoe, the sun shines all winter.  And it’s warm sun, not like that tricky bright kind with no warmth.  Don’t get me wrong.  It gets cold too, very cold.  When it is snowing.  But it only lasts a few days, not all winter.  And then you’ll be back in that tee shirt and hoodie in no time.  I love Tahoe.

Just another snowy day.

Just another snowy day.

Those are not ants.  Those are people.  On my beautiful neighborhood beach (when it’s covered in snow), Reggan Beach.  Sorry to my friends and family who have read Vicariously Living Through Janene (that’s the name of my blog, Mom) religiously.  I know I haven’t held up my end of the bargain.  But life here has been completely engaging and I haven’t had time to sit in front of my computer.  But with Emad back in Philadelphia seeing all the people I miss, I find myself back in front of the screen.  So hello again everyone.
