Update From The West Coast

This article was written by in Link Sharing. 2 comments.

When I’m in California, I expect the weather to be warm and dry. Well, this trip has been a little different — lots of traveling through mountains. We’re in South Lake Tahoe, staying in a condominium for a few days, and the temperature will be in the 30s and 40s. We’re expecting nine inches of snow tomorrow. When we left New York, we were experiencing 75 degree weather.

I’m not complaining, however. There are a lot of fun things to do around here. One of the lake cruises takes place in a boat with a glass bottom, and there are casinos nearby. (The Nevada border is less than a mile away).

I’m taking some time to catch up on the blogosphere while my girlfriend is in the shower. Here are some good reads from the MoneyBlogNetwork and beyond.

Welcome to the West Coast! It’s raining sideways in the Pacific NW and snow in the Cascades—and tomorrow’s Easter?

Yeah, Tahoe is frequently still open for skiing in April. In spring and summer after an El Nino winter, it’s not unheard of to ski on snow/slush in July.
