Abraham Lincoln once said, “Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.”
After a record dry December and mostly sunny days in January, Old Man Winter has decided to wake up from his extra long nap.
The storms rolling through aren’t very big, but a slow, steady stream of snow showers is finally leaving behind the fresh powder skiers, snowboarders, sledders, and snowman builders have been anticipating.
With sunny skies expected after the next storm rolls through, Lake Tahoe is shaping up to be the ideal place to be for the upcoming Presidents’ Day holiday weekend. That is double good news for all those who opted to skip going to the mountains over the Christmas break due to lack of snow.
The current storm, which is expected to leave 4 to 9 inches of snow behind, comes on the heels of a small disturbance that moved through a few days ago that left 3 to 12 inches. The storm later in the week will only add to those welcoming totals.
As George Washington said, “Truth will ultimately prevail when there is pains to bring it to light.”
The truth of the matter is with optimal weather expected and fresh snow on the ground, doing anything else but heading to Lake Tahoe for the Presidents’ Day weekend might be a pain too much to bear.
