(01/06/08) Happy New
year everyone. As many of you have asked hows the snow,
it is awsome! This weekend storm has been one of the
biggest around here for at least 5 years. We have well
over 3 feet around lake level and 3 times that up higher.
(09/21/07) It has been
a long hot summer here in Tahoe. We had a span of about
84 days of no rain. We now have snow in the upper elevations
of Lake Tahoe, and we are forecast for as much as a
foot and a half for this weekend.
(02/26/07) Well well
now. Looks like i spoke to soon. We are now getting
our whole year season of snowfall in one storm it seems...
(See snowfall report here
Well as our long Dry winter has come to a close, we
have yet to see any real snowfall. Lots of rain.. But
there is always next year, right? Btw we are upgrading
all our computer systems. There is a new server that
we now running on and will be testing a new video cam
in the near future. Have fun and enjoy.
(11/23/06) It has been
awhile since our last news post. It has finally started
to snow again. The Racers Net server has had a few
upgrades this year. We installed a new 15k drive and
two faster processors with fans.
Check out this whiteout cought
on the weather cam shown in timelaps. It turned almost
completely dark outside for over a minute, (04/16/06)
