As it began, so it ends. The guests were treated to another spectacular sunset. The clouds settled in over the valley floor like a warm cozy blanket. We needed the cozy blanket to keep us warm when the temperature hit 33º last night. The high was only 55º. The crisp autumn air seems to have given way to old man winter. The crew says it is going to snow any day now. I am fine with that as long as I don't get a repeat of last years big snow. Chris says we have entered the "will you sign my yearbook" phase of the season. It is when the crew starts to realize they only have a month left to hang out with each other and they might actually miss one another. It is a good way to put the season to rest.
