As for Lake Tahoe, it is experiencing the snowiest season in seventy years. And it continues to struggle with extreme weather conditions. The grocery stores have been closed due to snow-piling, roads are not fit for travelling, etc. Meanwhile, the residents have received around $20,000 to clear snow from the roofs of their homes.

According to California State Parks Sierra District Superintendent Scott Elliott, this is the first time in 18 years the place has seen the biggest winter. Moreover, the layer of ice that is covering Emerald Bay is unbelievable. The officials are trying to find new places to store snow and keep roads open for commuting. Their priority is to keep the public and staff safe and clear the roofs.
