As the snow melts   Leave a comment

While it has been taking it’s sweet time, the snow of this mega winter is finally beginning to disappear. Underneath those copious quantities of snow many of us are rediscovering our early winter oopsies: The stuff we should perhaps have brought inside before the Snowmegeddon arrived. Take a walk around any neighborhood and you are bound to see lots of interesting things finally seeing the sunshine.

Cars that folks apparently didn’t need this winter are now emerging from the snow, and some of those cars are topped by camper shells. Unfortunately some of those camper shells look like a giant squashed beer can.

There are kayaks, and boat trailers, and lots and lots of tree limbs and in some cases, tree trunks, making an appearance. In my case I found a huge cedar limb on my garage roof, and was recently reacquainted with a row of Wal Mart $2 solar pathway lights. They were under ten feet of snow for three months and they can still put out light. Not bad for two bucks.

I also recently discovered my bear proof garbage container. About two months ago the county snowblower doused it with about five feet of frozen cement chunks, after which I threw up the white flag of surrender until spring. When the container did finally come out of hibernation, even though it was full of garbage from months ago, it didn’t smell as bad as I thought. Being packed in ice does keep things fresh.

If you haven’t been to your Sierra home in a few months…you might want to come on up and take a look. Hopefully what you left there is in good shape, and you don’t have any new additions to the outdoor decor like a fallen tree. There are also likely to be some newly created water channels from all the early winter rain we received.

Speaking of water channels, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out the roaring Truckee River. Most of the dam gates in Tahoe City are open, as the watermaster is trying to keep Lake Tahoe from reaching it’s legal maximum of 6229 feet which is only about one foot away…and there is still a lot of snow in them there hills.

THINK OF ME, LYNN RICHARDSON, FOR ALL OF YOUR LAKE TAHOE AND TRUCKEE REAL ESTATE NEEDS!
