Empowering Professionals: California: Olympic Valley

Silent Sunday (Almost) - A snowman... In July! Summer oh summer,wherefore art thou summer?

Yeah...  while the rest of the country is baking, out here in California we have yet to see summer.  In fact, this weekend I think is the first sign that summer is here.

My son and I are in Lake Tahoe, and for some strange reason I brought his snow boots.  The weatherman said a high of 50 and a low of 35 or so during the middle of the week...  So when we got here, it was ironic that there was still snow!

Snowman in July

I know it's not the biggest snowman that you have ever seen...  But it was my son's first!  We do not ever get snow in Saratoga.  Well, we did this winter, but it was like someone threw flour on the floor...

Squaw Valley

Now the snow wasn't all over the ground, but it was still in the shadows, the cracks, and under trees.  This snowman was 50 steps from our door.  We had fires three of the nights, since it would get soooo cold at night.  Usually it is hot hot hot this time of year in Squaw Valley.

The day we leave, it is expected to be really hot...  We still made the best of it and had a great time!

In fact, 4 ski lifts were up and running at Squaw Valley today!  People were skiing in bikinis and trunks!

Have a great Sunday everyone!
