Snow, Beautiful Snow!

The sun rose into a blue sky this morning, but within hours, the temperature fell and wind began to blow snowflakes down from the sky. What a beautiful sight! It was slushy down at lake level but the flakes quietly built up and left everything beautifully dusted with a white coat. Tom and Sam braved the weather and went skiing while Jenn and I visited Kathy at Mountain Critters and then had a nice lunch at the Blue Agave.

Happy New Year!

The first day of 2009 dawned cold, crisp, and clear on the Tahoe North Shore. Sam, Jenn, Tom, and I had a fairly restful and relaxing day after the roommates and their guests left today. I watched the Rose Parade before getting out of bed and going downstairs, then we all had pizza and great meatball sandwiches while we watched the Rose Bowl game.

I kept up another of my traditions - here is a picture of the first sunset of the year:
