    Fucking dumb vector cunts.

    I know they will come regardless of what I say or do.
    I also understand that in tough times we circle the wagons and will "save our own first", but how do we counter that as a member of the community?
    If the shit hit the fan and I had a spare property and family in need, it would be hard to see past our own need to take care of them.
    still, it pisses me off to witness it coming at us.
    Reading about this makes me think of all the articles Iíve seen talking about how homeless populations are a threat and problematic source of the virus. Seems to me that people like this pose a much greater threat to our communities right now. People like this will listen to absolutely nothing anybody tells them if it doesnít fit whatever they were already thinking in their head. Their bullheadedness is what will do us in in the end, not the people who have nowhere to go.

    Sucks you have to deal with that. Also, all hotels in Reno are shut down. Not sure about Airbnb or whatever.

    There aren't enough cases in the Tahoe area to make a meaningful graph but the number of cases is rising steeply, this was posted several pages back--look it up in the Truckee Sun if you like--and the numbers suggest we have more cases per capita than the CA average.

    We are contractually done when the ski lease is over, so I am writing them a very heavy worded email about their cuntiness because they are well aware that the county and town have asked second homeowners to stay away from Truckee, let alone flying in a group of 20something family members to escape the hotbeds of infection and death to hang out here.

    I don't expect them to change their plans as they've already justified their own well being over that of the community with lines like "they're fine...", " It's just 4 of them", "yes, they will self quarantine for 14 days, are the grocery stores well stocked because they'll need to go shopping right away to stock up"

    Everyone is so special.
    Fuck off, stay away and don't fuck over others with your selfishness.
    Truckee and Nevada County have not asked people to stay away from their second homes. They have asked people to stay put in whatever house they are in first, second, or tenth. The Truckee town attorney has stated publicly that banning second homeowners is unenforceable and in his opinion illegal and unconstitutional. We'll see what happens with the ban in SLT. As far as the second homeowners supposedly buying up all the food and filling up the hospitals--the Truckee groceries are better stocked and the hospital emptier than those in the city. It's the cities that should be banning people from the hills who come to shop and who want to be transferred to a big city hospital when they get bad sick--don't you think?

    If people in the mountains want to keep out the "outsiders" we should be prepared to do without the food and gas and spare parts that come from warehouses in the cities. Either go it alone completely or accept that we are part of a whole.

    Agree that having a family reunion is a terrible idea. We're telling our son--doctor in Boston--not to come as planned in June. Not being able to see our kids is the most painful part of this--especially as our other son in Sacramento is being assigned to Reno and being deployed god knows where by the AF come July.

    It's understandable that people in NYC would want to get out. Those of us who are lucky enough not to be there have no right to bar the doors for those who are lucky enough to have somewhere else to go. The morality of it aside--everyone who doesn't get Covid makes all of us safer in the end. This is one country--750,000 or so died to keep it that way--we are all in this together, these rants against people we think don't belong disgust me.

I question my VHR neighbors treating our town like a corona vacation, yes I'm that guy, NIMBY.

    If only CA could block NYers/and intrastate travel like Rhode Island did.
    BTW--the first case in Truckee was a local who was a returning overseas traveler. She apparently infected some in her church. The idiot friends of ours who have it are also locals who are returned travelers.

    What is so hard to understand about shelter in place?
    It is useless if everyone thinks they are the special case it doesn't apply to.

    And don't compare goods to people, poor strawman.

    And your last paragraph contradicts everything above it and makes my point exactly.

    Stay the fuck where you are, here, there, wherever. Don't travel here to your second home to escape.elsewhere. Don't travel. Period.

    Placer is growing but Sacramento is a hotbed now with one of the nation's largest clusters. Washoe too with 245 confirmed cases and 4 deaths. California seems to be doing well but we're not out of the woods yet by any means.

    On a positive note - traffic accidents and fatalities are way down due to lock down. In California, probably more lives saved not driving than lost to #wuhanflu.

    Damn, some of you need to pop a gummy and chill the fuck out. Thereís a whole lot of grey area in all of this and the absolutism doesnít help.

    2 of my best friends are ER doctors. Several friends and family are nurses (a few are infected now). They are all pretty much saying the same thing: get out and exercise and itís fine to drive there just be extra careful and use common sense.

    Glad that SAC is still forecasting. People are going to ski when it snows a few feet and putting up a high advisory is more likely to keep people safe and out of local hospitals or requiring a SAR response. IMHO.

    I donít think anyone here is saying that itís bad to get out and exercise safely. The problem is that people are not doing things safely, including exercising, and thatís why our curve looks like it does. IMO, now is not the time to tell people to ďchillĒ but to remind them to use extra caution. We all need to do our part.

    And I will say it again IMO, no American should put powder ahead of the Corona Virus. If you can get some exercise and ski some pow good on you, but donít put others at risk so that you can shred some pow.

    Yeah, agreed w/ above Iím not sure that SAC is really encouraging any more backcountry use just by keeping the forecasts up to date. I guess for eastern Sierra the only town there is Mammoth. Much less populated than Tahoe area, less ďlocalsĒ who could theoretically be skiing while maintaining shelter in place. Idk, each avy center is just doing what they think is best for community

    Just as a side note from all the CV talk. This storm is pretty impressive for April. Nuking all day, with probably close to 2 ft. by the time we left. And not just Sierra Cement, but cold blower -some of the best I've had in Tahoe. If the forecasts with 5" of water hold, shits going to be really deep. Unprecedented for this late in the year.

    Sorry, I went skiing. Flame me please.

    Health is life and while all of us want to stay fit and healthy, not everyone has the time to get in a routine of exercises and a good diet for achieving it. However, we can make things easier for ourselves by buying machines like an under desk treadmill.

    Jesus christ there are so many utterly dumb things you said right there I'm not even going to start with any of them.

    I hope you don't loose anyone close to you in this. But if you do, that would be a good piece of evidence for karma.
    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    Doubt it, but poking the bear doesn't help. And I'd be lying if i said I hadn't already been wrestling with the ethical dilemma of such a dick move.

    Don't complain, you guys have it good.
    In the ski resort I'm in France there's a total lockdown, can only get out of the house for an emergency, no skiing, biking at all.
    They use helicopters to see if anyone is in the mountains.

    I suppose I am being insensitive.

    Did you get out there? Curious to compare obs.
    Found a lot of really reactive snow, with bad bonding to the old melt/wind crust. Lots of loading in a short amount of time also doesn't help. Mostly just sloughing -but the new snow was light and deep enough to really blow out.

    I'm not sure why SAC downgraded the avy forecast from yesterday. It was windy AF and seemed to be nuking all night. If anyone is out there today -definitely be careful. I'd give it some time to settle out before jumping on anything thats not -30 degree dad pow.

    Was walking the dogs when the Gazex on Pete's Peril at alpine was used. Snow slid quite far. I don't trust my visual observations, but 500? 1000? feet? Large fractures visible more than a couple places on the mountain. Seems sketch. I am not a snow scientist.
