Pattern Change Could Take Place in 10-12 Days
High Pressure off the West Coast will continue to dominate our weather for at least the next 10 days. However we are seeing the possibility of a pattern change around the 12th of December. Here is what we are up against:
The ridge of high pressure is strategically located to block any moisture and keep our temperatures well above normal; a double whammy preventing storms to enter our area and the resorts from making snow.
However, not all is lost. In fact, most Tahoe areas are open and skiing is good for the most part.
We are seeing a pattern change that could arrive in the nick of time:
Notice the new location of the ridge of high pressure. That should open a door for storms to make it into our area and if you believe the GFS weather model, a series of storms will slip through that door and bring much needed precip to Tahoe sometime between the 12th - 16th of December. Obviously that is quite a few days in the future and we will need to keep a close on this, but for those who prefer the glass to be half full, there is relief in site.
COVID-19 Positive Test
Your humble author tested positive for COVID-19 nearly 2 weeks ago. Although the battle was tough at times, the disease can be beaten. I am a 60 year old male in the moderate to high risk group. I should make my mountain debut this weekend. I am also a 40-year medical researcher and have learned quite a bit through the nearly 2 dozen studies being conducted by my company and first hand exposure to the disease.
I believe the most important thing for people to keep in mind is that masks offer little if any protection. In fact, the WHO admitted their mask recommendations were put in place because of political pressure. Do not wear a mask and think you are safe, you are not.
Secondly, be sure you add copious amounts of Zinc and Vitamin D3 to your diet. You have to assume that you will come in contact with the disease and this will help your body to deal with it; 300% of the daily recommended amounts is optimal.
As study after study comes out touting the benefits of HCL/Zinc as an effective prophylactic treatment; if you are in the high risk group, have a plan with your doctor to start a regimen as soon as you test positive or begin to show symptoms. The earlier the better. Although numerous documents exist, here is the latest guidance for treating the disease for the high risk group:
Unfortunately, much of the information out there cannot be trusted. The political environment is so highly charged that we have lost sight of the true goal, which is preserving life. I highly recommend that you avoid searching for answers on Google, rather try Bing or another search engine. In addition, because the rest of the world does not share our petty differences their information is much more reliable which is a terrible shame.
As our US government continues to attempt to divide us, fight the temptation. Treat your fellow citizens better than you might normally. See if they return the favor. All we have is each other and whichever side of the political spectrum you are on makes no difference. It is time to unite as Americans and take back our country from the corruption that is running rampant. We all share the same goals which are spelled out in our constitution. Stop shaming your fellow citizens based on faulty information provided by a corrupt media.
Send your local politicians a strongly worded message; End all lockdowns while protecting the vulnerable. The lockdowns are destroying our businesses and school closures and destroying our most precious commodity; our children. These decisions made by corrupt government officials, cannot continue and we must stand united in reminding our government that they serve us and not the other way around.
