Well, it seems the Winds of Doom have carried over from yesterday and brought along a ton of rain today. Since this morning we have already received over 2.2" of rainfall and the winds have been monumentally strong. The crew certainly had a time of it making beds this morning while trying not to be blown away by rouge 60 mph gusts catching a bed sheet and parachuting them up to Cliff Tops.
The high and low yesterday danced close together, between 48 and 50. And while we only caught about half an inch of rain, most all of that was very late last night.
There are both a high wind and a flood advisory in effect all day for the area, so if you are planning on getting out in it, please do so smartly and pack plenty of rain gear. Fallen trees are a big concern on the trails today! Also, I would personally advise against venturing up the Rainbow Falls trail today because many stream crossings will be dangerous as the rainfall accumulates on its way down the mountain.
Ya'll stay safe and dry today!
