Brrrrr!! It’s a bitter cold, snowy morning on the mountain. Calm winds with heavy snowflakes falling again. The high yesterday reached 28 degrees. The overnight low dropped down to 5 degrees. It is currently 5 degrees. We received 1.04 of precipitation. We received 12” of fresh snow bringing our snow depth to 17” with much deeper spots that are knee deep around camp. Winds carve their own paths through camp making drifts much deeper. All roads are closed. Looks to be another snowy day up top. Have a great day!
The crisp air paired with the shining crystals on the fresh layer of snow. Silent… the mountain is still, but alive. Firs are weighted down heavy. It’s a shoveling kind of day up top. Just did one round of shoveling and it’s beginning to get covered quickly. Mother Nature always wins! Anyways, the tunes and coffee are hot. Thinking I’ll do some baking today. It’s going to be a great day spent on LeConte. SEE YOU AT THE TOP!
