We had another bizarrely warm day yesterday. The high crept up to 52. The overnight low was 23. It was 33 and raining at observation. Be very wary of hiking today. The rain is supposed to last all day and the still frozen ground is a recipe for black ice.
I hiked down Alum yesterday with a few friends. We finished atop High Point and it felt great getting out in such accommodating December weather. I spent the remainder of the day relaxing and taking care of a few chores in anticipation of the nasty weather today. Thanks to everyone who hiked me up oranges, apples, and chocolate turtles!
