Still snowing..

I had to go take that scam of a test called the “GRE” today in Reno, where it was 71 degrees.  Now that I am back, cursing the red tape that is ETS, I am somewhat comforted by the reminder that here in South Lake, it can snow any month of year.

I love the days in Tahoe where it snows one day and then there’s blue sky the next.

Yeah like this

After getting stuck in the snow for a minute (my car cannot drive through more than 1 1/2 feet of snow, even with chains), Kari Jo and I went snowshoeing on one such day, determined to find Fallen Leaf Lake.

There are so many reasons why love Tahoe, even though the economy gets more depressing every day.  My favorite things are the sheer natural beauty and snowboarding.

There's not very much snow right now, but I know I just have to be patient.
