Probably because we live in a Desert...

Oh and you better whip out the check book and get ready to pay BIG money for Northern Nevada Lakeside property. Topaz and Tahoe are the two that come to mind.

Washoe Lake is more like a shallow sea than a lake. Expensive there too.

Washoe is natural. Very natural.

It is more akin to a wetland type environment than a lake like Tahoe or Topaz or Donner. It dries up from time to time, overfills from time to time. Very shallow. Beautiful as all heck though.

It breaks 100 a couple of times in the summer. Usually stays in the 80's and 90's. Gets pretty cold in winter, snows a bit. Not like Vegas at all. We have 4 seasons, and they come 5/6 times a day.

The entire state is at altitude north of Vegas. Reno is at 4500'. I live at 5300'.

You need to do some more research if you are going to move here.
