I am grateful for what I am & have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite - only a sense of existence. Well anything for variety. I am ready to try this for the next 1,000 years, & exhaust it. How sweet to think of! My extremities well charred, and my intellectual part too, so that there is no danger of worm or rot for a long while. My breath is sweet to me. O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it - for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment. Thoreau
It was a very dynamic, rainy day yesterday. The wind was gusting all afternoon and we received some heavy winds and lightning in the evening. The mountain received 1.23" of rain last night. The high was 47 degrees and the low was 27 degrees. It was 27 degrees and clear with some gorgeous inversion this morning.
Allyson will be on the mountain this afternoon and will take over the blog for the season. I will be taking off on Monday to visit family & friends before my new job starts in New Hampshire. Here is the exciting place I'll be working for the Spring.
A big thanks to everyone at the Lodge, especially Tim, Chris & Allyson. I had a fantastic time and am so grateful to have had the opportunity to winter up here.
Inversion this morning.
