In recognition of Veterans Day, a heartfelt thank you to all those who have so honorably served for our nation. It might have been a superbly sunny day everywhere else but the mountain top yesterday, as the summit struggled to let go of its cap cloud. That coverage has only further taken hold through the night with wind and rain set to dominate this Wednesday. Wet conditions the last several hours will have the trails thoroughly soaked, so watch for slick surfaces and mud underneath any leaf litter. Temps should remain mild again today in the 40s and 50s. The rain is expected to last well into Thursday before easing up. Winds upwards of 25mph will persist as well during that period, so pay close attention to the trees as they dance and shake around you.
