Folks in Tahoe City have a bummer of a detour to get to the mountain today with highway 89 south to Squaw and Alpine closed due to avalanche. The avalanche hit two cars shortly after 3am but no one was injured. CHP is reporting the avalanche was 200 ft. across and 12 ft. high.
With 33 inches in the last 72 hours and winds reported in the 140mph+ range it is safe to say that Tahoe is experiencing a wild little winter blast. CalTrans Twitter is reporting road closures and chain requirements across the area.
Hopefully they open up the road soon before all those Truckee people come from the north and track it out all the freshies.
