Snow Way to Go

Thanks to some fortunate timing of sporting events, I was able to watch the Formula 1 race live last night from the hotel room before going to sleep, and when I woke up the final round of the Masters golf tournament (shifted earlier and compressed due to weather conditions in Augusta) was already going, so with a slightly extended check-out, I got to see that as well. This gave me a leisurely morning at the hotel before I left for home a bit after Noon.

Wall Of Snow

At Donner Summit rest area, this was how much snow was still on the ground. At least four meters looms over the parking lot.

Plenty of Snow

The building are all but buried in snow, even in mid-April. No wonder ski areas are projecting skiing through Independence Day!

Nyack

Even a couple thousand feet lower to the west, at Nyack, there was still plenty of snow, with an operator charging for parking for people coming up from the Sacramento Valley to play in it.

I got home around 4:30 PM, tired but happy to have had a good weekend with my sister. We'll do that more often now that we know the process.
