Truckee River Trout...Love Snow!

...still snowing with an occasional break...thought it'd be fun showing what a snow-shut-in views from within
Our "front-door"...ain't going to be using for awhile...way too much snow even for my snow-blower

Our bedroom window...guessing a 8' snow-drift

Back-deck pile-up...better start shoveling or we'll be in an igloo soon

TRUCKEE TRIVIA #28

Question:

Where is this?


Snow, rain, sun and snow...

A BELATED REPORT:

BEEN REALLY BUSY SHOVELING AND PUSHING SNOW ...sometimes wet and other times fluffy..OFF THE BACK DECK...RUNNING OUT OF STORAGE/STACKING AREAS...I'M GUESSING A MINIMUM  6' AT OUR HOME AT 6500' IN TRUCKEE SINCE THE START OF THESE CONTINUING SNOWS.

Well thus far it has been an interesting New Year, geographically, socially and weather-wise.

We both attended our very first New Year's Eve wedding. The son of a fraternity brother got married during a religious ceremony, followed by dinner, drinking , dancing, fireworks (filtered)along the SF waterfront......and two nights in my boyhood room in North Beach.

 Outdoor Deck...cocktails...before, during and after food
Dancing Music 
Happy New Year!!
SF Bay...and Bay Bridge
On Jan 2 we headed back "up the mountain" into a low snow-line at Colfax at mid-day and happy and comfy at home awaiting the weather. Its been snow, rain, sun, blue skies, snow, slush on and off for the last two weeks...with a series of snow or another week. Bring it on, nature needs all of it.
Settled In...Our north windows diorama





mostly grey skies, white-outs with continued snows....and brief periods of sun and blue skis and wispy clouds


...Almost a black/white image via natural light

Black-outs, Brown-outs, no WiFi, phones (used our old land line connection), TV...lots of candles and LED solar and battery-powered lanterns. Been fun and I'm getting my exercise shoveling...I'm running out of space where to put snow off my back-deck. Fortunately we have snow-removal service for the front drive-way.

Sage Words from the Icons #7

Catch and Release

"The finest gift you can give to any fisherman is to put a good fish back, and who knows if the fish caught isn't someone else's gift to you?"
