Today is for warmth

Truckee might be the fourth snowiest city in the country-- and the most beautiful, in our opinion-- but Tahoe winters are a little different than other snowy climes.

Though very cold, winter here is also bright and sunny, making the extra work of a snow day just a bit more manageable somehow. All that sun and snow is also quite pretty through the window frame of an insulated house, when we're snuggled up with a cup of tea and a good book. Keeping warm and staying indoors can be an adventure, too!

With Truckee temperatures dropping lower than we've seen in recent memory, let's celebrate things that bring us warmth.
