Below 600-700 ft, Tahoe's water temp remains a constant 39 degrees F.
Maximum depth is 1,645 ft.
Maximum length is 22 miles, with a shoreline of 72 miles.
Here's one really extraordinary fact: There are 63 tributaries draining into Lake Tahoe and only one outlet - the Truckee River in Tahoe City.
On Tuesday afternoon, Matt & Jen - with their two doggies - and Jen's parents, Tom & Alice, came up to our home in Nevada City for dinner. Jimmy grilled a couple of pork tenderloins, but we ate inside because it was hotter'n Hades outside. After eating, we spent the evening indoors chatting, and enjoyed the company very much. Matt & Jen stayed overnight with us, along with little Sophie & Maggie, the two entertaining doggies. Nice to have all four of them!
Come Wednesday, we reversed yesterday's agenda! Matt & Jen returned to Roseville to get preparations a-ready for a dungeness crab/shrimp boil, à la Louisiana where Matt learned first-hand how to do this. Jimmy and I followed a bit later with chips and dip. Best crab boil I've ever had. True. Two nights in a row, we delighted in fine dinners with family, lucky us! It was still too darned hot to spend much time outside, so we gathered indoors again, visiting and having a fine time.
I took scads of pictures both days, but you won't see any of them right now. I didn't notice till we got home last night that I'd left my camera in Roseville - how very aggravating! Maybe next week I'll get the camera and post the pics. (sigh...)
So, the newly-engaged couple returned to Los Angeles early this morning (Aug 16th), back to their lives in a new apartment, with new jobs, and a lifetime together to look forward to. We hope to see them again soon!
