Okay where is it? Snow is supposed to be a daily event in Tahoe now. I am giving up on Mother Nature and going right to the guy in the red suit. Come on Santa, really, we were good all year long and we promise not to leave fruitcake for you this year. Let it snow, please let it snow!
Safe travels to all leaving this week to spend time with family and friends in other places.
