April Tahoe Snow Showers Brings…
You know the old saying April showers brings May flowers, but what do you get when it’s a snow storm in late April? April Tahoe snow showers brings….well, in my case, my snow boots have returned from the back of my closet!
Three days ago it was warm enough for shorts, sunscreen, and we were out on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe bike/walking path with our nine-year-old Irish Wolfhound dog Blackie, and it was wonderful to be out on a nice, dry path free of snow and ice, but not today.
Now its April 22, 2016, and it’s snowing hard enough to make me bring out my snow boots and snow shovel so I can clear the stairs and walk-ways again.
Just when I had thought spring had really sprung, and all of my patio furniture had returned to the front deck, we get a big snow storm. This photo was taken at about 3:30 p.m. today!
The heavy, wet snow that is loaded with water content is always welcome in a state that had seen some of the worst drought years ever, so while our daffodils won’t fair well, the snow, or rain is always welcome here.
It’s hit and miss when it comes to our spring weather here in the Lake Tahoe – Truckee area, which covers April, May, and early June, but if you’re a spring skier, or snow boarder this late snow storm today will freshen up the ski resorts for a great spring skiing weekend up her in North Lake Tahoe.
For those that will be headed to the greater Tahoe City – Truckee area this weekend, don’t forget to dress in layers and if you need chains for your car, keep them in the trunk of your car just in case this storm lingers on for a few more days.
If you like the idea of not knowing whether we’ll have snow, or if it will be warm enough for shorts then you’ll want to be up in the greater Tahoe City, West Lake Tahoe, or North Lake Tahoe area this coming weekend to take advantage of the crazy weather conditions. Either way, you’re going to have a great time here!
Come on up and enjoy our crazy spring weather here in the North Lake Tahoe – Truckee area this weekend!
