I swear to you there are divine things more beautiful than words can tell. Whitman
It's a blustery, snowy morning up top. The high yesterday reached 37 degrees. The overnight low was 25 degrees. It was 25 degrees and overcast at 7am observation. The mountain received 1 inch of additional snow, bringing our total up to 9 inches. The wind has been howling, so be sure to be prepared for some deep drifts. The temperature is dropping quickly this morning, it is already down to 14 degrees and feels frigid in the wind. Be prepared for below zero windchills if you intend to summit! Enjoy the snow world!
The wind has been fantastic for the past 24 hours. It was fitting to have such a spectacle on Super Bowl Sunday. There was constant action, a dance between the pine and fir branches and forces unseen, with no commercial breaks! If you closed your eyes, you could easily convince yourself that the persistent roar was a heavy summer storm by the seaside. The blowing snow imitated sand and all of the sudden I was on the coastline. I can not walk, but I am still traveling.
