Looking down from the top of our favorite mountain things appear to be much the same as yesterday. The temperature here is the same as yesterday at this time— 11 degrees below zero. Last night the thermometer got down to negative 22 degrees. I woke up at about 11:00 PM because I was cold—my little heater just wasn’t keeping up! So I climbed up into the loft above my room where it was noticeably warmer and slept soundly for the rest of the night
There has been no additional snow since yesterday. All of the roads are still closed, so I don’t expect see many hikers.
I have taken advantage of the quiet time to do research on winter gear. The results are as follows: Mittens are warmer than gloves. I am a big fan of goose down—the higher the fill power number the better! I hope that you are able to stay warm today!
