The True Meaning of “Truckee Love”

If you have been in and around Truckee, you may already be familiar with the term “Truckee Love”. The company with the same name started selling clothing and accessories in order to promote supporting small, local businesses in and around the Town of Truckee. Their trendy logo is often displayed on people’s outfits or their stickers plastered on cars, helmets, snowboards, or shops. The term was meant for people to engage with the local community in a variety of ways, and it continues to bear an important meaning more so now than ever. It is a call to action of sorts for our residents to embrace the importance of reaching out a philanthropic hand to our neighbors, and to show our love by helping in anyway we can. It’s the perfect time to set an example of how all of the individuals of a small town can make a massive impact.

Here is a list of local groups that are working to make a big difference in supporting our community. Read on to also find ways that you can help step up and be your own local hero!

When You Wish Upon a Meteor

April will bring some additional glow to our skies this month with the Lyrid meteor shower. The shower spans between April 16th-25th, but the 22nd and 23rd will produce the most vivid show of the month. The peak of the shower pairs perfectly with the New Moon, which means the cosmic bursts won’t be competing with the moons light, giving us more chances to make wishes.

What are the Lyrids?

The Lyrids, which peak during late April, are one of the oldest known meteor showers you can see today. The first records of viewing them date as far back as 2,700 years. (The first recorded sighting of a Lyrid meteor shower goes back to 687 BC by the Chinese.) Every year in late April, the Earth passes through the tail of the Comet Thatcher, causing a spectacular meteor shower. Comet Thatcher was discovered on April 5th, 1861 by A.E. Thatcher, an犀利士 d it’s the pieces of space debris that originate from this comet that interact with our atmosphere to create the Lyrids.

The Lyrids are known for their fast and bright meteors, though not as luminous as the famous Perseids in August. In general, Lyrids can surprise watchers with as many 10-20 Lyrid meteors per hour during their peak, although outbursts as high as 100 per hour are possible.

Where Do Meteors Come From?

Meteors come from leftover comet particles and bits from broken asteroids. When comets come around the sun, they leave a dusty trail behind them. Every year the Earth passes through these debris trails, which allows the bits to collide with our atmosphere where they disintegrate to create fiery and colorful streaks in the sky.

The Radiant

The point in the sky from which the Lyrids appear to come from, the radiant, is the constellation Lyra (also known as the harp). Lyrids appear to radiate out from the star Vega, the brightest start within this constellation. This constellation is also where we get the name for the shower: Lyrids.

Lyrids frequently leave glowing dust trains behind them as they streak through the Earth’s atmosphere that can be observable for a few seconds. It is best to view the Lyrids away from their radiant, as they will appear longer and more amazing from this perspective. If you do look directly at the radiant, you will find that the meteors will be short—this is an effect of perspective called “foreshortening”.
Viewing Tips

The Lyrids are best viewed in the Northern Hemisphere during the dark hours (after the moon sets and before dawn). Find an area well away from city or street lights so that you do not have any interference from light sources. Dress warmly and come prepared with a sleeping bag or blanket and reclining lawn chair. Position yourself so that your feet are facing east and you are looking upwards taking in as much of the sky as possible. Once your eyes adjust to the darkness, you will begin to see meteors, but be patient. The show will last until dawn, so you have plenty of time to try and count as many as you can.

This fabulous cosmic lightshow is the perfect distraction from the Coronavirus, and is a great opportunity to get outside and practice social-distancing in a constructive way.

Celebrating Easter from Home


Indoor Easter Egg Hunt – Not everyone has the ability to host a hunt outdoors, especially if they do not have a yard or face poor weather conditions. Bring the fun into your home with an indoor egg hunt, rain or shine. Get creative on this room-to-room hunt by placing eggs or candy in unusually clever spots: in a glass in the cupboard, in shoes by the front door, tucked away between couch cushions, or in the pocket of a jacket in the hall closet. The possibilities are endless, and this makes for a challenging and longer-than-usual Easter egg hunt. For younger kids, consider narrowing down the search area to just a few rooms, and broadening it for older kids. You can even ramp up the “wow” factor on prizes for the older participants by including dollar bills or lotto tickets inside the eggs.

Indoor Scavenger Hunt – Who doesn’t love a good game of hide-and-seek? However, instead of the seeker searching for a person, the end result is an Easter basket filled with goodies. Simply stuff plastic eggs with consecutive clues that lead to the next egg until eventually the hunters find the biggest prize of all. This is a great way to get your kids to collaborate together to solve a mystery, and it makes for a fun and satisfying end to their hard work.

Virtual Tour Easter Egg Hunt – Arrange for a virtual Easter egg hunt in your neighborhood with friends, neighbors, and even local businesses. Participants can do a block by block hunt for “eggs” while keeping a safe physical distance.

Use an app like Nextdoor to setup a special group of people and/or neighbors who would like to participate in the event. People can either add their specific address or set up a participating map identifying each property involved. Personal residences or even local businesses are invited to be a part of the action.

Place these “eggcellent” pictures around the exterior of your home. Some ideal locations include windows, light poles, trees, mailboxes, or even in a flowerbed.

Challenge your neighbors to find the most “eggs” in the neighborhood, and offer a small prize for the person who uploads the most photos. The gift could be something as small as a gift card or a basket filled with Easter-themed goodies.

Not much of a budding artist? You can download these free printable designs to decorate in any way you choose, but the more colorful the better so as to be seen from the street. https://coloringfolder.com/easter-egg/


Pin the Tail on the Bunny – This holiday is the ideal excuse to play this crowd favorite, which is usually saved for birthday parties. Well considering spring is a time for rebirth, the timing makes perfect sense. This also is a great distraction for the kids while you recuperate from that epic egg hunt.


Easter Bingo Game – This is a fun Easter-themed spin on an old classic that is enjoyed by everyone young and old. Simply print out these free bingo game cards and hand out to each participant. You can use a variety of items to mark your spots, including Hershey’s kisses, jelly beans, and even coins. One person announces a specific object on the game board, and each player places a token to cover that square. Whoever gets five objects in a row yells out “BINGO” and is declared the winner. There are different types of Bingo games you can play including four corners, bulls eye, and blackout.


Easter Egg Toss –You don’t really need to be outdoors to enjoy this fun-filled, field-day game. It’s guaranteed to be a good time and could get really messy, but that is all part of the fun! The rules are pretty simple and straightforward too. First, you will need an equal number of players, as each team will be divided into pairs. All teams begin by standing an equal distance apart. One player on each team begins by tossing a raw egg to the other teammate. If the teammate catches the egg successfully, then they both take a step back and the game continues. If the egg is dropped, but not broken, the teammate may pick it up and throw it back (lucky for them). If the egg breaks on the ground or in someone’s hands, then the team is now out of the game. The game continues until there is only one team left without a broken egg. One important note: be sure 犀利士 to wear some old clothes in case an egg breaks on you!


Dyeing Easter Eggs – Nothing says Easter quite like the tradition of dyeing eggs. Instead of doing the basic food coloring in vinegar routine, try pumping up your dyeing techniques with glitter, nail polish, tie dye, melted crayons, and even rubber cement. Your eggs are sure to visually stimulate appetites prior to getting devoured.

Easter Egg Music Shakers – Fill plastic egg containers with rice, beans, popcorn kernels or beads and tape up to create a nifty musical instrument for little ones. Experiment with different fillings to create a variety of sounds. https://www.pre-kpages.com/upcycled-plastic-egg-music-shakers/

Easter Bunny Headbands – Heading to the craft store is not really an option right now. Here is a fun way to get festive with minimal effort and materials that even the kids

Easter Slime Eggs – This is the perfect spring sensory play idea that does not involve candy. You can use this recipe as a quick holiday activity to keep kids busy, or even for use as a basket-filler. It is easy to make and offers hours of slimy, glittery fun for your little ones. https://littlebinsforlittlehands.com/easter-slime-recipes/

Sugar Cookie Egg Decorating – Not enough eggs on hand? No problem. Homemade sugar cookies or even store bought dough will work sufficiently in this decorating craft. For some inspirational decorating tips, tricks, and holiday-themed styles follow this link:
