Happy Wednesday and Happy Leap Day everyone! It’s so strange to me that every four years we get an “extra” day…but I’m not complaining!
So I mentioned that Cam and I were supposed to be going to San Francisco this weekend.
We finally got some snow in Tahoe!
It’s been such a dry winter here and really terrible for skiing, so it’s kind of fun that we are finally getting a little bit of winter. We got quite a bit of snow on Monday and I snapped that picture on my cell phone yesterday afternoon on my walk with Lola (yes, I still took her for a walk even though it was freezing!). Since then, we got some more snow last night, and outside my window it’s still snowing and the wind is howling like crazy (so Lola might not be getting a walk today…). The snow is supposed to continue through tomorrow, and it’s making me really glad that I work from home! Since this is probably going to be the best weekend for skiing yet, Cam and I decided that we’re going to postpone our weekend getaway to San Fran until next weekend and then stay here and ski this Saturday and Sunday. So far we’ve only skied at Heavenly (because it’s less than 5 minutes from our house!) but our ski passes get us access to two other resorts in area (Kirkwood and Northstar for those of your familiar with Tahoe), so we’re hoping to try out one of those other resorts this weekend.
I’m a little bit bummed because I’m really looking forward to San Francisco, but I would really like to get some more skiing in this year so I think that postponing our trip until next weekend is for the best. Plus, hopefully the mountain roads won’t be as snowy by then and it will make the drive there easier.
So in the meantime, I’m resting up because I’m sure my legs are going to be dead after this weekend if we ski both days! We went this past Sunday, and I feel like I’m improving a little bit each time, but I still have a long way to go. The weather was a little bit overcast so the lake wasn’t quite as blue as it’s been other days, but it was still beautiful and less icy than it’s been the past few weeks. Here are some of my pictures from this past weekend, I’m sure I’ll have many more next week!
|My face was definitely windburned at this point!|
Have a great Wednesday everyone! xoxo
