We decided to take a trip up to Lake Tahoe this weekend with my in laws. My wife’s aunt has a place up there on the California side, not too far from Meek’s Bay. It’s really nice and it’s great to be able to stay there once in a while, especially in the winter, since it’s really close to great skiing such as Squaw Valley and Heavenly. I keep kicking myself that I haven’t been able to go there for skiing yet, even though I’ve lived in California for over 4 years now. One of these days I’ll go. Maybe even this year. The excuse so far has been that the kids have been too young, but that’s not the case anymore. I think it would help if my wife liked skiing as well, which she unfortunately doesn’t. I’m hoping that the kids don’t follow her footsteps. Indoctrination to follow.
The weather wasn’t great, but sometimes bad weather makes for pretty interesting pictures. We had a great time anyway, exploring the area and eating out. No gambling for me this time. I have really hard time to justify that these days…. especially since I’m saving up for a new iPod…
Here’s one thing that really annoys me when driving in the US. Even in bad weather people don’t switch on their headlights making it really difficult to see them driving in the rain and fog at 70 mph. I wish that it would be mandatory to drive with the headlights on, just like it is in Sweden.
Well, we’re back in Sacramento now. And luckily, the weather is great with a nice 25 C temperature. Winter is still absent.
