The Sun Is Out

The Sun Is Out

Even though we're running out of space to put snow, more tree limbs have come down than we can count, and we can't feel our fingers and toes, finally the sun is out.

Feeling warmer already.

Stay safe and warm out there. 

And if you need firewood, Tahoe Fence has some up for grabs outside our yard. Take what you need (leave the wire bins.) Please don't make a mess.

Snow + Wind = ?

Snow + Wind = ?

Snow + wind = winter wire. Chain link fencing where the snow freezes to the material. It's a similar principle to placing your tongue on a metal pole when it's freezing out (Don't try it! Just trust us and reference "A Christmas Story" if you need more information). 

Snow + wind = fence repairs also. The increased load from the weight of the snow and force of the wind can buckle even the stoutest of builds. If this is a concern for you, please contact us. Tahoe Fence provides free estimates whether you want to reinforce an existing fence or already need to repair one.

Fitting Snowman

Fitting Snowman

Even after a day of rain, there's still snow and more snow.

So to enjoy this Winter miracle, Tahoe has recreated our fitting snowman from the comfort of our warm and dry shop.

Tahoe's chain link fitting snowman is built on a post plate. Two large diameter brace bands make the body. A tension band is the head. Gate rod cut-offs finish the hat and arms. And rail-end tabs are the mittens. And it's all from used, reclaimed, or scrap material.

Boss disclaimer:  No new material was harmed in the creation of this snowman!Fitting Snowman

New Year. New Opportunities.

New Year. New Opportunities.

This week marks the end of 2022.  And already next week is the new year, 2023.

A new year means new opportunities. Learning from our mistakes from growing another year wiser. And trying to remember to write 2023 and not 2022!

For Tahoe Fence, it will be our 49th year in business. We thank all of our employees, customers, and families for all their help for the success through the years. 

Even though the weather looks like it will be cold and wet to start the new year, Tahoe is working to get a running start this next year. One project we are working on is with some area schools to close off potential problem areas and increase safety. 
Our shop is busy fabricating various chain link panels for our crews to fit and install on site.

Cheers to a safe and prosperous new year and opportunities!

Enjoy the Sweetness of the Holidays

Enjoy the Sweetness of the Holidays 

The holidays are here. Make sure you take some time to enjoy them.

Marvel at some of the Christmas decorations around the area. The Capitol in downtown Carson went all out. 

Sing along with some of your favorite holiday music. 

Wonder at how beautiful the landscape looks with just a bit of snow.

And remember those who are important to you and make the holidays so sweet.

Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays. May you share the sweetest of memories this season.

Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown

Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown

Did you know that "A Charlie Brown Christmas," the 1st animated special for the comic strip aired on this date back in 1965?

Not too bad for the old "Peanuts" strip.

Even though it's no longer baseball season, Tahoe's crews battled some Winter weather to complete this backstop in Douglas County.
The backstop is chain link about 15' high, with a 6' high, overhang in Dresslerville.

Think Charlie Brown and the gang would be proud to play baseball here during any season.Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown

It Snowed

It Snowed

Forecast called for snow, and it snowed. 

Not really a surprise since we are now in December. But what was a surprise this morning was everything was frozen solid at Tahoe's yard. Including locks, panic hardware, automated gates, etc.

Here is a tip to help keep this from becoming a problem for you:

Lubricate metal locks and gate hardware (hinges/latches) with a little silicone spray or WD-40 right before the weather turns wet and cold. Even put some on sliding gate rails, cantilever gate frames, and operator chains. Whatever you can do to keep water/moisture from collecting and freezing on your locks and moving gate parts will be beneficial after the storm.

And if you have solar powered gate operators, make sure to sweep the snow off the solar panels. This will help keep the batteries charging in the sunlight if you keep the gate connected through the winter. 

If a big snowstorm, or a series of storms, is on the horizon, consider leaving your automated gate in the open position. Then you can clear your driveway without the gate being in the way. When you're done, the gate will have a clear path of travel.

Something To Be Said For Gratitude

Something To Be Said For Gratitude

It doesn’t feel like it’s almost the end of November. But next week is already Thanksgiving.

Tahoe recently had the opportunity to participate in several worthwhile projects. One of which was playground fencing (blue slatted wire) for the new Boys and Girls Club of Mason Valley Early Learning Center in Yerington. A meaningful endeavor we were happy to work on.

There is definitely something to be said for gratitude, and Tahoe would like to express how much we appreciate our employees and customers. Our business is you.

Thank you and enjoy a healthy, happy Thanksgiving.
