What a Difference a Day Makes

What difference a few days can make – From 9:00 PM November 13th until 9:00 PM November 23rd we only had 8 hours where there was any fog reported and temperatures were in the teens to 30’s and very low winds for this time of year with a peak gust of only 53 miles per hour over the period. Just so we didn’t start to think this is some kind of Caribbean Island resort, the temperature was turned down to a low of minus two yesterday and winds were cranked up with a peak gust of 106 miles per hour. Makes you appreciate all of that warm clothing and boots that EMS and Vasque provide us with as sponsors. We’ve also had some snow fall over the past two days and we’re currently reporting two inches on the Summit. However, as you can see in the picture with this comment, most of it has blown off the deck. It makes you wonder where Santa will be landing with his sleigh and eight tiny reindeer just four short weeks from today.
