Looks like fun. Actually yes that flash flood. If you walk along the trail to the beach, there are two areas where you can clearly see what all that water did. One is a giant hole where the pipes run under the highway and the other are trenches left behind. One thing about Tahoe (and Colorado). Weather can change in a matter of minutes. I recall being caught on the CA side of the lake last year on my mountain bike in a hail storm.

The other incident was while skiing at Heavenly years ago with my snowboarding buddies. I was on skis they were on boards. We took a lift from mid-mountain to the top. When we were about to get off there was a whiteout with severe icing. I couldn't see the chair in front. Anyhow, they let us off and then shut the lift down. However, we were stuck up there with about 8 ft visibility in front of us. Took a good hour to navigate the powder as there were some steep drop-offs that you couldn't see into the trees. I looked like a snowman as was only wearing a Patagonia sweater and ski pants. That was the year where they shut down the highway heading west. We put on our snow chains and the authorities let only those go that had them and agreed that if anything happened, we were on our own. It was surreal driving about 2 hours where you couldn't see the highway, just the moon and white snow everywhere. It took us about 7 hours to get back to SF.
