Snow Field

Snow Field

So how long will the Jefferson snow field last? As you can possibly just make out from the photo (hint it’s the tiny white spec under the big red arrow) it’s seen much better days and with 60 degree temperatures in the immediate forecast it will probably disappear very soon.

I’m working nights this week since Mike is away on vacation. So far it’s been the usual fog and pitch black skies with very cool temperatures for this time of year. Tonight, however, is much different with stars above and fireworks below. A couple of hours ago it was really impressive with multi-colored flashes going off in all directions – it certainly brightened up the observation. Now if only the wind would ease off a little.

Must go as it’s time to head outside again. Happy Independence Day!
