Snow Not Quite Gone

Yesterday morning after breakfast, I walked to the Frontier Fun Center and played pinball, which was good for my mental health. On the way there, I took this photo of the Pah Rah Mountains west of Fernley.

Last of the Snow

There's still a tiny bit of snow on the sheltered high spots in the Pah Rahs. The tallest of these peaks is about the same altitude as Donner Summit. There's a bit of precipitation forecast for this coming week, including potential snow in the Sierra passes (fortunately not today as I'm driving to Sacramento and then to the Bay Area, where I'll be working next week. I wonder if there will still be any snow left on these mountains when I get home next Sunday.

Later on Saturday, I got some of the tasks done that have queued up on me while I concentrate on the Day Jobbe. Not all of them. But I do have to spend some time not working and away from the computer or I get even less effective.
