The birds have left their summer homes for warmer parts of the country. That leaves the crew to hang out on the mountain, anticipating the arrival of the first snow fall. Excitement is in the air. The predictions are out there and we are wondering when the first flakes are going to fall from the sky. I have had a lot of questions about what happens if it snows. We will keep you posted on here and as well as our main website, www.lecontelodge.com. We wil let you know of any road closures or other issues that may occur. As of now, there is no snow on the mountain and I am still wearing my sandals. You will know as soon as I put my snow boots on. The high yesterday was 56 with the low of 42. It is currently socked in. The temperature seems to be hovering in the mid 40s.
On a side note, we would like to say Happy Birthday to one of our favorite crew members, Henry Neel. We miss having him on the mountain and hopes he has a wonderful day.
