Interesting, Beekeeping around Airports seems to thrive.
Several major airports have found a new use for open but restricted space alongside runways and hangars—as a home for beehives.

The more bees we host, the better for all of us.

I am sad that this long standing Bee keeping institution and a wealth of local Bay Area knowledge is no longer with us.

Tahoe Weather Geek tells us, no significant snow or rain till end of February... At least. That leaves us with ~2 more months of potential percipitation this "winter" in CA.
---------------------------
An area of high pressure over the eastern Pacific will keep skies mostly clear and temperatures unseasonably warm in the Tahoe Basin through at least Saturday. We might see some record high temperatures Friday and Saturday.
 
The high is expected to shift a bit to the north and webackcountryst, toward the Gulf of Alaska, around Sunday. This will allow colder air from the north and east to drift toward the Sierra from the eastern side. That shift should bring a cooling trend by Monday and into next week.
 
'But in the short term, at least, the high pressure will not move far enough to open the door to more Pacific storms.
There's no major weather in the forecast through the middle of next week.

It seems like here goes another spring break with no skiing. I might as well go riding instead.

New Mexico 1st few days

Yes, it was a nice change. Santa Fe was really  good. Lots of money there, restaurants and shops come up accordingly. If you ever go there, I can recommend 10,000 Waves, a Japanese Spa-Massage place. It was my B-day treat, it was a good place to relax.

Yesterday... a few days ago. Dec 4th.
Yes, in Germany now. It is so cold. I packed my UNI and was all ready to bring it, then I left it at home. Weather forecast was just too nasty, clod cold and rain or snow. Spending some quality time with my Mom.
