Life is full of chapters. The one chapter that has remained constant in our lives is our love for Lake Tahoe and Northstar. Our first introduction to Tahoe was hours after the big quake of 89 that took out the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. My husband and I were currently living in Little Rock, Arkansas and staying in San Francisco for a convention. We were riding a double decker tour bus just having completed a tour of the Muir Woods. We had circled down by the wharf and dropped several families off at the World Series game and had ventured back up to Market Street when the ground started shaking, glass shattering, concrete dropping from tops of buildings. Our thoughts at first were simple – let’s get out of here. We rented a car and headed for Tahoe. Love at first sight! Lightning can strike twice!
