The rain moved in yesterday afternoon. It continued to rain for most of the evening. As the temperatures dropped the rain turned to snow. We awoke this morning to about an inch of fresh powder. The ground was soaked before the snow fell, that makes for a good base layer of ice. If you are hiking up today, please make sure you have the proper clothing and some form of ice walker. The temperature is hovering in the mid twenties. The wind is blowing. It is a bone chilling morning on the mountain.
