Lake Tahoe Blizzard of January 2017

When I was a child, living in Kentucky, sometimes we got some serious snow. As a young adult, there were a few years in the late 1970s and early 1980s where we had good amount of snow. Maybe 2-3 feet. But I have never ever seen snow like that snow in the picture above.

This is a street in Truckee, CA, high above Lake Tahoe, and this picture was taken the day after the blizzard. Notice that the snow is up to the top of the stop sign. The STOP SIGN! You can only see a couple of letters on the stop sign and that is because of drifting.

Do any of you, dear readers, live in Big Snow Country? Tell us about it and show us some pictures!


  1. Truckee always gets record breaking snow. I have friend who lives there on a road named after the Donner party. Yep, that happened in the Truckee area. I like some snow, but not that much!
