On Wednesday it started to snow. It snowed on and off all day. The fluff mounted up on every flat surface. The wind didn’t blow. Temperatures were the lowest of the season. Perfection. The snow gods had smiled and answered the skiers’ prayers with the first “Yes” of the season. Friday the winds picked up. The Interstate was closed, then open, then closed, then open. Temperatures shot up into the 40’s.
By Saturday the sun had come out. It warmed into the upper 40’s and the snow in the valley was 80% gone by sundown.
A report from Happy Jack indicated that there was still good snow up there. The forecast is for warm weather today and snow tomorrow. Maybe it will survive.
