has finally sprung and not a moment too soon. This winter was one heck of a roller coaster ride living in the foothills of the Sierra. Lake Tahoe and Truckee received record breaking snow fall up to 50 ft in some areas and these storms produced some pretty great snow storms down here every week it seemed. Snow, several major power outages and snapped trees and piles of broken limbs litter our yard. The other day I saw a bunch of Spring Grasshoppers, heard frogs chirping and mosquitos floated around. Spring, bring it! mosquitos and all.
