I like meadow vista and yes on the dusting of snow. I don't know how pretentious on the CC, but living off I80 is much, much, much more convenient. I am a fan of Nevada county, don't get me wrong, and like GV a lot, but honestly, there is something about the commute up 49 that isn't the best.

There are a few highways that have the same curse- the ambulance alley in lincoln- what is it 65 or 70? And Highway 12 going in to Napa. 2 lanes, tons of traffic. Now they have all 3 been widened, I believe, but all the same you cram freeway traffic on too narrow of a road and it is a nightmare. Any time you have to turn your headlights on in the day, I know to be on high alert for anybody around me making one false move.

Default Hwy 49

Yes, hwy 49 is a real problem. It may not be obvious to drivers there, but there are a lot of mobile home parks for seniors on that road, and often they come out of the park, making a left turn through the traffic to go into town. Some are too frightened of it to drive anymore, but most have to drive and make that turn. Dangerous!
