I enjoyed my last commute for the season. Chris and I lucked out and dodged the rain yesterday. The clouds rolled in behind us and dropped 2 1/2 inches of rain on us through the night. I awoke this morning to a downpour. It has since stopped and opened up a view of the valley. We are officially into our last week on the mountain. The crew has hit that special time of the year where they are giddy with anticipation for their "summer" break. The winter caretaker should be making his way up the mountain. I will make the introductions tomorrow. I must go and serve pancakes and hot cocoa.
