Snow and Rain
By MortazaviBlog on Dec 31, 2005
It has been vacation time here, and we just spent several days near Lake Tahoe.
Last weekend, storms made skiing difficult. Monday proved good enough. Rain made it wet and cold on Tuesday. Wednesday was stormy again, and I found myself teaching new card games to the children. We had our best skiing day on Thursday at Alpine Meadows. (This was our first time there, and we really liked it. On Summit Six, a pristine, blue Lake Tahoe could be seen beyond the slopes.)
On Friday, the storm returned as we drove back home. Our car felt like a little submarine in a sea of giant SUVs. We are lucky to have decided to return on Friday. Today, there are reports of mud slides closing down Interstate 80 (near Donner Pass?). Reports say I-80 will be closed for two days.
Last year, a solid week of good snow and great weather delighted us all. Despite the bad weather this year, I'm still very grateful for having a chance to spend a bit of time in the company of family and friends.
