Boca ReservoirI've spent two weeks at the Gold Ranch RV park in Verdi. I had planned to stay in Calpine or Boca just up the road, but old mother nature refused to co-operate and insisted on keeping winter around a little longer. She couldn't seem to make up her mind....one day we had 70 degree weather and the next two days we would have snow showers and freezing temperatures... Finally I moved on the Boca and have been there almost two weeks. Mother nature is still having a hard time....several days of beautiful Spring weather and then wham...snow and freezing temperatures
I did get a change to get out and hike up to Hunter Creek Falls. The trail head is in the heart of Reno and about 5 miles round trip. The trail is steep, rocky, and unmaintained but the falls are beautiful. You need boots on this one.
This is the first time I have seen snow on the log in the middle of the falls.
My son Jason and Rhonda said farewell to their house and friends and are now headed down the road to Tennessee. They got a taste of southern weather the other day when the tornado hit Mississippi and Alabama. They have never encountered heavy rains before.
Saying good by.
I've been working cleaning and getting repairs done to my house so a new tenant can move in soon. The biggest project has been doing a years worth of yard work in between all of the bad weather. I should have everything cleaned up and ready to move on by May 1.
Also, Justin and Liz will be moving to Fairfax, Virginia at the end of May. Justin is going to go to grad school and Liz's job is primarily on the East coast so Liz won't have to do so much traveling. The exciting news is that my son Jeremy has purchased a house in Portola, California ,and escrow will be closing soon. No more cold, cold, Calpine driveways to contend with. At least now when I visit Jeremy I'll have a little warmer place to stay. It all worked out great in that Justin has sold a lot of his furniture to Jeremy that he didn't want to move to Virginia and Jeremy has now handed back my furniture to me so I can rent the house furnished and not spend huge amounts of money for storage. We spent a whole doing the furniture swap thing. I hope to not have to move another thing for awhile.
