That means fishing is just ahead. I regularly go up to Truckee for business, and last week, I detoured to Lake Tahoe — twice. The lake is reaching its prime and is absolutely beautiful. I bought a sandwich at Obexer’s Market and had a quick picnic by the lake before a business meeting.
The lawns in many neighborhoods are green, even with the bright-red snowplants in full bloom — an odd combination.
This weekend I’m going to organize the fishing tackle, get the bikes out of storage at Tahoe, and next weekend, I’m going to power-wash the sailboat and begin refinishing some of the wood (an annual chore with an older boat).
Summer is my favorite season, and it’s just around the corner. My only concern: The low snowpack this year is going to lead to some super dry conditions by mid-summer.
