Rain and wind are a great combination for melting snow. We received .71" of rain yesterday. The high was 43 and the low was 19. The temperature is dropping. Thank goodness it stopped raining before the temperature dropped. The melting snow will turn to ice, with these low temperatures. This means there will be patches of ice on the trails. Alum and Rainbow are good to go. Trillium has a few trees down and there is a land slide on the upper section of Trillium. We hope to have that taken care of today. We are looking forward to a few days of sun and warmer temperatures. It is nice seeing grass again.
