Weekend Assignment #178: It's hot. Everywhere. Really hot. Counteract it with a cool and refreshing photo or story. Yes, we've done something like this before. And, if you recall, it worked. Also, it's easy and it's too hot to do anything complicated. So, lets do it again (just, you know, don't reuse stuff that you've already posted along this line before).
Extra Credit: Would you rather be too hot or too cold?

Lake Tahoe, Nevada, is one of my favorite places to go in the winter. We don't get snow very often in the Bay Area, and if we do, it rarely lasts longer than 24 hours, so if I want to see snow, we usually take a ride up to Tahoe. It's beautiful there in any season, but it is especially tranquil and lovely in winter. These photos were taken earlier this year, in March, just before spring. The sun and snow made everything kind of twinkle. It was so relaxing to sit next to the lake, and just take it all in. :) I am learning to really love winter, especially under the right conditions. :)

Extra Credit: I would much rather be too cold, then too hot, but both come with their challenges. I don't tend to think straight if the weather is too warm, but with the winter, comes a good deal of pain in my joints from Fibromyalgia. Still, I enjoy snuggling with Elvis, under a big, cozy blanket, so I will take the winter. :)
