Our First Real Snow In Reno

Song:  Zeynep's Romance

Artists:  Omar Faruk Tekbilek and Brian Keane

Alex's first at home snow fall.  
It was also only the second time in his life that he has
really experienced snow.

We really love the change of seasons that we get to experience here.

As a family...we lived in the central valley of California...
where there really isn't a dramatic shift of seasons.

Although the snow here never reaches the depth of many parts of the world...
we still get to enjoy the benefits of snowfall here...
without the need to shovel our way to the street.

Although this snowfall was relatively light...
and more than a month overdue...
and at times the snow depth does necessitate more
extreme measures to move about outside...
it is only during the rare really heavy snowstorms that it happens.

The snow here is usually of minimum depth...
just enough to enjoy...
without backbreaking snow shoveling for more than a couple of weeks a year 
(or so I have been told by locals).

There is supposed to be a break in the weather in a couple of days.
We will probably head to Lake Tahoe when the weather lightens in the Sierra Nevadas.


  1. I love the four seasons as well. Sounds like you get just the right amount of snow there, just enough to enjoy, but not so much to have to shovel. Glad that Alex got to experience snow!

  2. Yes, it was great. We are going, not to Tahoe tomorrow as we had originally planned...but to Pyramid Lake. We will be going to Tahoe in a few weeks. We hope to have a good time there.
