The weather is changing – finally. Having been here for the last five days and seeing nothing but fog, rain, and drizzle, makes you wonder if spring is really here. The snow banks have melted away and there are just a few patches of snow here and there on the summit. They will most likely be gone once the sun hits them over the next few days.

There were relatively few visitors to the summit over the weekend, but the MWO Gift Shop did rather brisk sales of rain gear and the like. Our Volunteers (Cynthia and Kevin) have been cooking up a storm of their own – believing in the principal that to stay warm you have to be well fed – and that we are!

The skies will clear later this morning and it appears that the precipitation will be over for a while. The dense fog has not allowed our ARVTP sites to charge their batteries for a number of days, and the 4,000 foot site has stopped responding. Maybe the sunshine later today will bring the voltage back up high enough to get the data flowing again. If not, Jake, Mike, or Jon will have to make a visit to the site and figure out what’s up……
