For many years I was self-appointed inspector of snowstorms and rainstorms, and did my duty faithfully, through I never received one cent for it. Thoreau
It's a beautiful, snow covered day up top. The high yesterday reached 42 degrees. The low was 27 degrees. It was 28 degrees and snowing lightly at 7am observation. The mountain received .54 inches of liquid precipitation. Once the temperatures dropped in the evening, the mountain then received 2 inches of fresh powder. It looks like we may have 3-4 inches before this storm passes. The trails should be ok with the fresh stuff, but once it gets packed down I am sure they'll become treacherous once again. It is probably best to pack the Microspikes just in case...

I have a hypothesis that I am investigating: If there is snow, then JP is happy. Other corollaries include: if there is snow, then no reading gets done. If there is snow, then there are no existential crises. If there is snow, then there is no need for society. If there is movement, then there is hope. In order to test these hypotheses, I have to leave this world confining screen. I must go play in the life affirming fluffiness. Enjoy the joy!
