The forecast said we could have some pretty good snow last night, and after a sunny day right up until early evening, heavy rain did come in and really blast us.

Unfortunately, it didn't get cold enough to become snow at base level, although Akakan is reporting that there is about 10cm of fresh snow at the top of the gondola. Can't see any white trees, but we'll assume that there is a bit more up there. Good, too; down here we lost about 13cm since yesterday because of the rain and, especially, that wind.

There's still enough, thanks to the fall over the past few days, for all the ski areas to be open once again. And that makes us happy, in a time when most everything seems ready to close down.

Warm, mostly cloudy. Looks like something might be blowing in over the mountains (although the wind at base level is coming from the east.... must be whistling 'round the mountain at us here).
