Woke early this morning to the sound of rain dripping off the roof (we tend to wake early during snow season; the sound of bulldozers in the neighborhood are my alarm clock).

By 7 this morning, though, this had changed to a pretty solid fall of wet snow. Nice, big flakes, but pretty compressible snow - not exactly champagne powder, but still really welcome.

In fact, for the backcountry we could really use a big fall of heavy snow to bend those small trees and vines down and get them ready for a mid-winter sleep. It is bushy out there now, almost impassable in many areas. Not fun when you can't make consecutive turns.
