What a difference 365 days makes. It is why I don’t buy all the hulabaloo from weather forecasters about El Nino, La Nina, or global warming. The weather is what it is, and no matter what we do to try to control it, the best way to deal with it is to roll with it. There isn’t a lot of snow in Tahoe this year, but there is a ton of ice. The skating is epic. Grab a pair of blades and enjoy it while you can.
For the first time in over a month Snow-Forecast is calling for some precipitation at the end of next week. No, not snow. But a break in the subzero pre-dawn temperatures and if we’re lucky, the rain will turn to snow. Cross your fingers and do the snow dance (wash your car).
In the meantime, a rerun from last Christmas Eve, 2010:
On this day, we had it all, although the pow wasn’t blower dry, it was still soft and deep. Geoff Clarke demonstrates why he prefers free heels to training heels. When you tele, it’s always knee deep.
