As you can see from the photo above, we are a bit socked in at the moment. A guest asked me what I saw? I said "Nothing. That is the point of the photo." We received another .17" of rain last night. The high yesterday was 69º with a low of 54º. I can honestly say that I think this has been the wettest season I have seen in my 11 years on the mountain. The crew was thinking about buying stock in "happy lights". The only problem is I haven't see the sun enough to be able to charge the batteries to use mine. It is a bit of a conundrum.
After walking around camp this morning, I noticed the coneflowers are blooming. I may have been wrong when I predicted them being a couple of weeks late. I am now thinking we will see them at full color by the end of the month.
Time to for me to go clean the stove. One of my jobs on the mountain is to take the stove apart, twice a week, and make the stove nice and sparkling. I will admit, I love seeing a clean stove and a clean fridge. Those jobs are good ones to do on days like this.
I believe we will see some color soon.
