May We Get Snow Please

Can I be anymore polite? This is ridiculous, we've had like no snow this winter. It's has been the worst year for snow ever in Tahoe. We got a good storm back in October and we all got excited, but we have not had anything significant since then. Needless to say the lack of snow has been really hard on the entire Tahoe Basin. The Tahoe ski resorts have had very limited terrain open and many workers find their jobs are in a holding pattern until it snows, and you can tell money in town is stretching really thin.

There may be some snow headed our way however, and that would be great news so we're all hoping the weather forecast is correct for later in the week. snowforcast.com is predicting some serious snow for next week, I took a quick screen shot and that's the image ☜ to the left. I really hope we get some snow on these mountains.

Hay, I just found the coolest weather radar image ever. It's from the perspective of looking down on the North Pole from above and you can basically see a good portion of the northern hemisphere at once. It's cool to see how the weather patterns circle the earth, go check it out HERE. It's fun to tinker around with the settings, you can adjust the 6-day radar loop animation speed and add a variety of color enhancements and filters to bring out the conditions.
