Preparing For Summer

Summer Deck

It’s been a really pleasant day up here with just a light breeze, some patchy fog, a nice undercast and very mild temperatures. The sun is noticeably stronger now and has been rapidly melting away the last remaining patches of snow.

Marty and I took the opportunity to get outside this morning and enjoy the great weather. While he explored the rocks I started on getting things ready for the rapidly approaching summer season. The winter shovels have been put away (hope I haven’t jinxed anything here) and the instrument area of the deck has been roped off in anticipation of the first passenger Cog train of the season this weekend.

It’s hard to imagine that our winter isolation will soon come to an end and we’ll be welcoming lots of Cog and Auto Road visitors through our doors once again. Must say I’m looking forward to some summer weather too – it’s been a while since I’ve seen towering cumulus and a summit thunderstorm light show.
