It was a really nice day up top. The high was 29. The low was 12, but that was early yesterday morning. The weather got better from there on out. It was mostly sunny and with all the snow on the ground, it felt much warmer than the thermometer indicated. It was 29 and snowing a bit at observation. We received about a half inch of new snow and the total is still hovering around 8 inches. Be prepared!
As Joni Mitchell said, you don't know what you got 'til it's gone - and though I doubt she was talking about frostbite, it certainly applies to toes. Bring gaiters & extra socks, just in case your footwear fails. Wet skin loses heat 30 times faster than dry skin and that could be the difference between a really good 'close call' story and hobbling on 6 toes the rest of your life.
