Good Afternoon Everyone, Nobody on the mountain managed to get swept away in yesterday's howling winds! The rain didn't roll through until after dark but kept steady up until sunrise. At the time of observation we had received 1 inch. Yesterday's high temperature topped out at 50 degrees, followed by a low of 39. It seemed like the sun was going to break through this morning, but the clouds have stiffened their defenses and the temperature is hovering just above freezing for now. Be sure and pack those shells and layers if you intend to summit the mountain.
This is one of those days where a crew member spends their afternoon off indoors, snuggling up with a book in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other. A nap sounds appealing as well. But then there are those who churn like the Energizer Bunny, and want to explore the mountain in its cloak of cloudy mystery. Rumor has it there is sunny goodness around us, but for now we'll just have to enjoy our socked in solitude. Have a great weekend!
