Tahoe weather: This is more like it

Michael Schneider

Question: What could make up for the snow-filled, icy-cold spring months of April and May?

Answer: One really nice Sunday afternoon in Lake Tahoe. At least that’s what many visitors to a popular South Shore beach were saying.

“It’s a beautiful day,” said Bob Cuddy, who drove up from Sacramento with his kids to enjoy a day at Regan Beach.

Cuddy, who suffers from allergies, said it was a pretty nice day at the state capital, but he enjoys coming up to the mountains to get away from his symptoms.

Cuddy said he and his family planned to drive around the lake before heading back to Sacramento. His children were unavailable for comment as they were too busy playing in the water along the shore.

Tom Bradshaw and Stephanie Gingerelli said they went to Harvey’s Resort Hotel/Casino and got lucky without even yanking on a one-arm bandit.

Gingerelli said Bradshaw called to reserve a room at the hotel and was accidentally given the Honey Moon Suite.

“We’ve been on the 18th floor all weekend,” Gingerelli said. “We’ve got five TVs and a big Jacuzzi.”

Bradshaw said the temperatures and sunny skies at Lake Tahoe were better than he’d seen recently at his San Mateo home.

The couple said they were driving out of town when they saw the beach and thought it would be a lovely place to have their picture taken.

At the Sierra Sicles concession stand, which took up residence at Regan Beach, employee Marty Leary said business was slow but descent.

Leary said the concession stand had served about 40 patrons as of Sunday afternoon.

Residents and visitors to the area can continue to enjoy the sunshine and warm temperatures though at least the beginning of this week. Today’s high is expected to be a sunny 65 on the South Shore with only a 10 percent chance of afternoon thunderstorms.
