Every year we wait with anticipation to see if the groundhog will emerge from his hole to find a cloudy day, signifying the end of winter, or if he will come out to a sunny day, see his shadow, and retreat back into his burrow. But surely the groundhog has other things to think about.
To give him a break, John Farley, retired aerospace engineer, will be conducting an on-trail presentation and discussion about Western Nevada’s microclimates and weather on February 10, 2013 from 10 am to noon.
Topics will include weather versus climate, difference in climate between leeward and windward sides of the mountains, and Reno’s interesting wind events, as well as trivia and statistics about Western Nevada’s weather. Bring your weather and climate related stories, statistics, questions and snowshoes, and join us at the Galena Creek Visitor Center’s weekly snowshoe trek on February 10th from 10 AM to 12 PM.
This North Lake Tahoe event is free, with a suggested donation of $5. For more information, please contact the visitor center at (775) 849-4948.
We sure hope it’s 6 more weeks of winter!
