Good morning folks,
It's another cloudy, socked in morning at 6593'. Our high yesterday was 44 degrees. The overnight low was 31 degrees. It was 30 degrees at 7am observation. The mountain received 0.67 inches of precipitation. We received 0 inches of snow. Temperatures are going to drop today and looks like we will get 5-6 inches of snow on Thursday! (OH YEA!)
Rainy days are for catching up on chores around the lodge. Laundry was a priority of mine yesterday! After several hours of my clothes hanging in my cabin, I opened my cabin door and was hit in the face with a refreshing scent of fresh clothes! With my chores complete by 10am, it was time to make homemade whole wheat bread. I love seeing the dough double in size. After it rose, I put it into bread pans to finish the rising process. 350 degrees and 45 minutes later, my bread was complete and let me know it by the wonderful smell in the kitchen. Mmmm! I let it cool , cut a few slices, enjoyed with a hot bowl of Cajun 15 bean soup! What a great day relaxing and listening to the rain pelt the wood shingled roof. All in all a great day yesterday! Have a great day everyone! SEE YOU AT THE TOP!

P Nut Next time you are on top, a picture please of our rock pile to make Mt. Le Cont taller than Cling mans Dome.I carried several rocks up there over the years to add to the mountains height. Is the tradition being carried forward?
