Fog (or Partly Cloudy as they say down in the valley)

There really isn’t much to say about the weather. No tales of high winds or yarns of treacherous deicing. High pressure has stationed itself over the eastern US bringing nothing exciting or even variable. Consistent west by northwest winds, cold temperatures, and fog has been and will continue to be the story. We’ve picked up 5 inches of snow in the last two days. But besides its horizontal passage across the deck, we can see none of it. I am looking forward to an expansive vista of white-capped Presidential mountains. Neil, if I can put words to his plans, would love to carve some turns with a view. We will have to wait until Monday for our first opportunity to clear out.
For folks living in the Fall season it will be a great weekend. Partly cloudy skies and crisp temperatures. To get the best of both worlds, Tuckerman Ravine might be a decent place for snowman building. The caretaker at Hermit Lake is reporting 19″ of snow on the ground. Be aware of trail conditions (posted next to the snow stake amounts, no excuses for being unprepared). It is full winter above treeline.
If I were to post a picture with this comment it would either be of fog point-blank or Nin the cat. If you get a nice shot while outdoors this weekend, post it to the Photographs Forum. That will be our vicarious holdover until Monday.
