Snow and Cold Temperatures Return to the Summit

Deck View of the Snow Yesterday Morning

It is good to be back on the summit for yet another week. Last week I left the summit in a less than enthusiastic mood as all the snow was melting away. Fearing it might be the end to winter I pulled out all my summer attire in the valley. Returning to the summit I didn’t need a single stitch of it as I put on my warm Eastern Mountain Sports gear for a cold start to the week. With temperatures below normal from Arctic air flowing south it is hard to think last week was the opposite. Regardless I am excited once again for the snow we are receiving on the summit and the shoveling that will be in my future tomorrow morning.
