Four Good Seasons in Carson Valley, Nevada

A wonderful place to live, the Carson Valley is blessed with four good seasons.  Summers are warm, not hot.  Winters are cold, not bitter cold.  Once in awhile there will be an exception and a summer day will get hot, but when the sun goes down it cools off immediately.  The same goes for the winter weather, we can get an exceptional cold spell ... the kind that brings snow to Las Vegas ... that will let you know you're alive. 

Recently we got a half an inch of rain.  Given that we haven't seen much, if any, precipitation for months it seemed like a monsoon.  The livestock was drenched, and the ducks were in heaven.  The gray skies, drizzle, mud, and slop around the barnyard all contributed to the feeling of being in Seattle ... in the Nevada desert!  It was great.  

The magical way Nature set this Valley up is amazing.  We usually get rain at the Valley floor while it snows all the way up the mountains.  That is important as we need the snowpack to hold the water for our summer irrigation.  It was brilliantly designed and works well ... except for the occasional droughts.  They are safer than the occasional floods, but they make cause for concern as we are still an agricultural community and much of our natural beauty is from the miles and miles of green pasture and croplands ... that need water to flourish. 

As we are in the mountains, one can expect any type of weather at any time of year.  We've seen it snow just about year ‘round.  One never knows what will happen.  As they saying goes, "Don't like the weather?  Wait an hour!"  It is part of the magic of living here.  Be ready, be flexible, and enjoy the magnificence of Mother Nature as she orchestrates her natural splendor for your pleasure.  The Carson Valley ... a special place on earth.
