The Snow Keeps Coming

March 23, 2011

Despite it being celestial spring, winter weather continues to hang on in Reno and across northern Nevada. We are set for at least several more days of snowy weather here in the Truckee Meadows and up around Lake Tahoe, look for the white stuff to be measured in feet. This is all jolly good for snow sports enthusiasts, but the rest of us are getting down right tired of it.

If you must travel in the mountains or need to get over I80 or US 50 to California, driving is going to be dicey for the next few days. Last week there was a multiple vehicle crash with a fatality caused by bad weather. One day it got so bad the road was closed for several hours. If you must go, take the chains, be prepared for delays, and give yourself plenty of time to get there. You won’t be cruising along at 65. Check highway conditions before leaving Reno.
