It's a beautiful, cloudy sepia-toned morning up top. The high yesterday reached 34 degrees. The overnight low was 16 degrees. It was 26 degrees and cloudy at 7am observation. The mountain received a trace of new snow, but there was a bit of melt yesterday. The snowfall total up top is down to about 3 inches. The trails are starting to get pretty slick, so I'd recommend some sort of traction devices if you intend to summit.
I received such an absurd amount of generosity this past weekend, it would be impossible to thank everyone by name. But please know your efforts at making my life a little more comfortable up here with books, coffee, bolthouse smoothies, fresh fruit, vegetables and good cheer is greatly, greatly appreciated. Sometimes the simple life ain't so simple, but tiny luxuries that many take for granted are enough to make my day(s). Thank you all.
