Ahh, a tale as old as time, or at least the past 10 years. We don’t mine coal here in Lake Tahoe, and we do not have factories. Our community, love it or hate it, has a symbiotic relationship with our weekend visitors. If it wasn’t for the powder-chasing tourists, our winters would leave many locals jobless, and perhaps lead to less locals. Good or bad? No one knows, but I’m sure everyone has an opinion. The storms that hit us these last couple months have provided some amazing activities, from snowmobiling to skiing, and indubitably some stronger shoulders and forearms — strengthened from shoveling our automobiles and decks. Holidays, big storms, amazing skiing, tons of tourists – a recipe for a traffic jam, especially when Interstate 80 closes down. How did this equation affect your day-to-day? Moonshine Ink hit the streets to ask.
