I was in Tahoe last weekend, teaching my daughter how to ski at Alpine Meadows. (Cuuuuuuuute!) While she was in ski school, I managed to sneak off for a few hours to make some turns with the grown-ups.
At the summit of Alpine, I saw this microwave tower, and I thought: “Wow, this is pretty much what Bernal Hill would look like if we got a big dump in San Francisco.” It was so easy to visualize.
I then commenced fantasizing about an epic powder run from the top of the hill down to my house on Precita. Mmmmmmmm.
Yes, yes… I know, it has snowed here before! Check out this view of the north slope after a dusting in 1882:
