“Have you heard the lastest Monty? The National Weather Service has forecasted another winter storm will hit Lake Tahoe this WEEKEND. High Winds, Rain & Snow — terrible roads… maybe Snow to the Valley floor by Monday. If that happens, The Borges’ will close and we might not be able to hang out at Lake Tahoe this weekend. Oh No, Ace … Do you think they will cancel the SuperBowl Party?”

“You know Monty, I don’t mind the Rain & Snow. It gives my coat a good cleaning. But the Wind…I don’t like the Wind! I agree, Ace. Pine Cones falling out of the sky & trash flying around scares me too... Makes me want to RUN! I feel safer at home.”
