Winter Wonderland

2007-11-06 20:26:13.000 – Karen Thorp,  Summit Intern


Winter is assuredly upon us; this morning we observed a light snowfall. The snow only provided a light dusting covering the alpine tundra, rocks, and road. Luckily enough with the riming events of the last few days, the dusting was all that was needed to provide an adequate ground layer for sledding. Out we went with sleds in hand to test the speed of the autoroad via plastic vehicle. Merriment was had by all.

As we move into the depths of November, we hope for “big snows.” Fortunately this might occur sooner than we expect, as Stacey is predicting 6 – 10 inches starting tonight and continuing through Tuesday. We will be keeping our fingers crossed.
