The White Mountain Report: Jan 13th, 2018
Thursday was the first day in over a month when I let my wood stove go out during the day. Considering that I get ~60% of my heat from wood and the stove runs 24/7, that's a major milestone for any winter. Temps today have been in the upper 30's all day and they are projected to be in the 40's or even low 50's tomorrow. With the rain that's projected, I may have to put on an Hawaiian shirt and jams for the day!

Selected Ice Conditions effective January 18, 2018
The rain brought down many climbs, for a minute. Then the flash-freeze brought many (but not quite all) of them back, plus some other interesting things as well. yes, for all practical purposes we did get a reset, but we're back to a good season again. It's a great time to get out there for some ice climbing folks...
