Snow has arrived!

Crepuscular rays to the west.

“I’ve been waiting for the snow to fall and cover us all. Yeah, I’ve been waiting for the snow to fall and cover us all.”
-The String Cheese Incident, ‘Round the Wheel

As I walked back into the weather room after doing an observation, that was what I heard. How appropriate because the observation involved snow, blowing snow and freezing fog. The past few hours has engaged in deicing while getting hit with the wonderful white flakes. Also the pumpkins, as I am pleased to report, are doing fine thus far in riding out this storm.

Kyle and I had growing grins on our faces last night as the batch of precipitation prowled closer and closer on the radar. The wheels in our heads began turning on backcountry skiing locations that we will aim to do this winter in New Hampshire and Vermont. But the evening also entailed some spectacular sights such as the summit fox, changing colors in the sky, and crepuscular rays. In the end there is good news and bad news. Winter is coming to the summit but Christmas is still over a month and a half away.

Hooooooooray for snow!
