Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July! To honor and celebrate our country’s past and heritage, the summit crew has decorated the weather room in red, white, and blue. While we may not be able to see fireworks in the valley this year, mother nature is trying to give us a show. Clouds have kept the summit in the clouds all day and with an approaching line of thunderstorms will likely continue this unsettled trend overnight. On the other hand, since we’re a bunch of weather enthusiasts, a show from above would certainly be welcome.

As a crew, we are also going to enjoy some 4th of July food. With a large crock of our favorite soup cooking and bread rising, we won’t be missing out on that front. Rumor has it there is a delicious red, white, and blue cake waiting for us later!
