High winds and rain seem to be the theme for the day. It is currently 36 degrees and raining. We had some extremely high winds last night and early this morning. I would say this should melt off a lot of this snow. Some of the crew took off yesterday and shoveled the spots on Alum Cave trail that were a bit sketchy. If you are coming up today, make sure you have a pair of dry sock with and a some good rain gear. It is wet outside. Be careful and have a good hike up. We will have hot chocolate and coffee waiting for you.
