OOOOWWWEEEE!!!! It is going to be cold under that helicopter today. The current temperature is 17º. We saw hail and then snow yesterday. It was a yucky day on the mountain. Today is clear but toe numbingly cold. We are waiting on the helicopter that is stuck in Pennsylvania due to fog. Hopefully, we will be flying later today. I guess it is time to put on my layers and get to work. Hopefully I will have photos for you in the morning.
