Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Today started off great, we had visibility of 110 miles and broken clouds over the summits for the better part of the day; overall it was another beautiful day…all we need is the snow to complete the beauty for a winter landscape. My wish for snow probably won’t happen today, but just after mid-night this evening we are expecting another round of mixed precipitation. A cold front will cross the region tomorrow, temperatures will drop and snow will present itself once again to the higher elevations. After the passing of this system, I’m crossing my fingers that this will be the last time the snow melts away!
Large feasts are a tradition for Thanksgiving. This is a perfect opportunity for me to answer a frequent question that presents itself to the crew here at the Observatory, “What do you eat up there?!” Well, to answer that question simply, just about everything you can gobble (no pun intended) down in your homes. Tonight in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, we will all be pitching in by making a dish of food and enjoying each others company. I’m excited to spend my first Thanksgiving on the Rockpile with a great crew! Cheers!
