Weather has been perfect in support of beach runs. I've been able to sneak in four while here, varying in distance from 2.5 miles (barefoot) to 9. Tides have been a planning issue, but I can live with that; who couldn't?
Speaking of weather, I've been watching what's happening back in northern Nevada. Things are looking likely to result in the driest December in Reno in 128 years. Yep, this will probably be the first December since 1883 with no measurable precipitation in Reno - at all. In fact, I believe the last precipitation to fall was in early November, making it something like seven dry weeks in a row. Yikes. Last I checked, the Tahoe basin watershed was at 10% of average annual snowpack, and that was two weeks ago. I'm sure it's less now.
Unless things change drastically, it's going to be a dry winter, and a scary fire season next year. Happy 2012.
