Just came back from Vegas. It started getting very cloudy, windy and unseasonably cold for this time of year. Lots of scattered rain from this system moving in from CA. I was sitting there thinking "what's this doing up at Tahoe"? The mtns had VERY dark skies.

Hey AC, what you doing at the lower elevation? thought you would be up high and playing hard?!

The mush turned to snow. Received between a foot and a foot and a half of heavy snow at 6,500 ft (slightly above lake level) -- great base-building quality snow (very dense, heavy water content), all the trees are bending extremely low from the weight.

Ryel, first snow of the year and it's sludge, I've been here long enough to be pickier than that!
