Quote of the Day
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
January 25th is OBSERVE THE WEATHER DAY! This is a photo I took in Truckee, CA on January 30, 2011. In a matter of a short time, the sunset was just incredible. This was taken looking north from the downtown area towards the train yard.
One of my favorite places to observe the weather in Truckee is at Donner Lake looking towards these same mountains behind the lake. The weather in Truckee and the Lake Tahoe area can change rapidly from sunshine to snow, so especially in winter, you really had to pay attention to what the weather was doing.
