It’s Snowing in Tahoe City!

It’s Snowing in Tahoe City!

The calendar still reads October, but the view out my front door says it’s anything but fall! The forecast was for 2-4 inches of snow, and at my home, which is on the West Shore of Tahoe City, just down from the Tahoe Park Sunnyside area, we’ve gotten over 5 inches of snow, if not a little more.

This is great news for those who can’t wait to ski and snow board this year, but early snow in October, seems to always catch us all off-guard.It’s Snowing in Tahoe City!

Early October snow storms can catch Tahoe owners off-guard.  My past clients know I really am a full service Tahoe Real Estate Agent.  They see that during the buying process, but also in the years that follow.

Some of my past client called yesterday and needed to have their homes checked in on.  They wanted to make sure their thermostats were still set at 50 degrees, or higher in anticipation of this early winter storm.

Most Tahoe owners were prepared, but just needed a comfort check on their second homes.  I’m always happy to hear from my past clients, and I’m always here to help out.

This early snow storm is expected to stay in the Tahoe City area for the next few days, so get those snow boots out and get ready for a great winter season.

The forecast for this weekend is sunny and clear, but it will be cold.  Tahoe home owners will get another chance to come up and check on their homes and get them ready for the upcoming winter season.

Be sure to watch for my next post on Winter Preparation Tips for Tahoe Home Owners!

Bears in Tahoe City, California

Bears in Tahoe City, California

Bears in Tahoe City, CaliforniaWe’ve begun getting ready for winter here in Tahoe City.  We’re expecting our first snow storm on Monday, so today, while the weather was still nice, we did some work around our home.

While I was picking up pine cones, and putting away the summer outdoor furniture, I was rewarded with seeing this beautiful bear.  It turned out that this was a mother bear that had come onto our property, while she had left the two clubs alone across the street.

Even though I live in Lake Tahoe on a year-around basis, for me, bear sightings are still a rare and special event.  This is only the second time I’ve seen a bear this year.  Take a look at these beautiful animals.

Everyone needs to use extreme caution when they have a bear sighting.  Remember to keep a safe, significant distance from them.  Staying away from the bear, and allowing the animal to continue on their way undisturbed is the key to a successful wildlife sighting.  Remember to use the telephoto lens on your cameras and camcorders and enjoy the experience.

Living with bears in Tahoe is just one of the many benefits of spending time here.  For more information on bear safety and how to live with bears, check out the Bear Legaue.

I’m looking forward to my next bear sighting in Tahoe City, are you?
