Don't be surprised, be delighted if your current or future romantic partner treats you to a day straight up on the rocks.
A few weeks ago, scuba divers in Lake Tahoe found the body of a man who had drowned in the lake 17 years ago. Still in its wetsuit, the body was very well preserved. Because the water in this high alpine lake is so cold, decomposition is very slow. This fact has spawned rumors, the most famous of which involves Jacques Cousteau and still makes me shudder, years after I first heard it.
Lots of snow means good skiing, but it also means an increased danger of avalanches.
