Winter has set in on the Summit

After an absolutely incredible Snow Cat ride up the mountain on Thursday, the weather turned back to cold, foggy, and windy for Friday and much of the first part of today. We’re currently reporting a snow depth of twenty-four inches on the ground. That doesn’t mean when you walk around the summit you’re going to be up to your knees in snow everywhere, that’s just the average estimated depth. You can find places that have drifted much deeper and other areas where the winds have scoured the snow off down to just a thin layer of ice. Winds have also been up and down over the last few days with minimums in the mid 20’s and peak gusts of nearly 120 miles per hour.

It’s not just outside where winter has set in, our tower has snow inside, now blown in through every crack and crevice. A couple of shifts ago I was still able to work in the tower cleaning up some cabling and working a few other projects; however, the temperature has dropped below zero making it more difficult to work. We’ll see if things warm up in there in the coming days so I can resume with the work that needs to be done.
