It's another blustery, snowy day up top. The high yesterday reached 38 degrees. The overnight low reached 7 degrees. It was 9 degrees and snowing at 7am observation. The mountain received .35" of rain before turning to snow yesterday afternoon. In those heavy, wet conditions we got down to 8 inches of snow on the ground... then received another 6 inches overnight, bringing our total up to 14 inches. The drifts are very deep up top. Gaiters, waterproof pants and the whole gamut of winter gear are a must. Please use your brain, the Park Service has their hands full trying to open the roads - they don't need any unnecessary search and rescues to take care of as well.
On a lighter note, today's conditions reminded me of a poem I'd like to share with y'all. Enjoy!
