After a long dry Autumn, we have snow. It was a great thing to see it snowing right on the heals of a devastating mid-January wildfire in Reno that two of my sons were fighting.
Although the economy would have been better with snow before now, it was a banner year for ice skating as the photo of Lower Echo Lake testifies (I took the other photo on the trails behind our house today). I did enjoy the lack of snow by hiking and mountain biking as skiing on ribbons of man made snow began to feel a bit confining. Hope you can come up and enjoy Winter in Tahoe at your favorite snow sport area very soon.
