After a nice sunset last night, we are now in the clouds and look to remain so for the foreseeable future. The snow is all but gone here on the summit, with only small patches remaining in the East Snowfields, or at least that is all we could see with the 50 foot visibility when we went for a short walk to investigate this afternoon. Looking at the radar, the thunderstorms that have been sitting over Vermont are nearly here and the fog is pulsating as distant lightning illuminates it. It is an eerie sight, but one that always makes me a bit uncomfortable. I love a good crack of thunder for two reasons. First is the excitement it brings and the power in the noise. The other reason being that if I can hear the thunder, then I’ve not been struck by the preceding lightning! Now we hope that things don’t get too crazy up here, the servers all stay safe and sound, and our cars below don’t get pummeled by large hail!
