It's amazing up here right now. The high yesterday reached 16 degrees. The overnight low got down to 2 degrees. It's currently 2 degrees and overcast. The mountain received 11 inches of new snow, bringing our total up to 16 inches. Unless you have a strain of Mallory or Hillary in ya, I'd stay at home and sip tea today. The trails are virtually impassable. Please be smart, the Park Service does not need to add a few rescues to their already lengthy to-do list on a brutal day like this.
