The White Mountain Report: Nov 15th, 2018
Here we go folks, hang on! We're going from one of the wettest and IMNSHO most obnoxious Octobers on record, to full-on winter. With over a full month before the official start of winter, it's as if Mother Nature flicked the switch. I never assumed that we would have a late start to winter, as some had predicted, but I didn't think it would get this cold & snowy in early November. We often have had that October snowstorm, but it never seems to stay that cold for long. Right now were' averaging 10 degrees below the average.

Selected Ice Conditions effective November 15, 2018
The ice is really starting to form up now. While I wouldn't call anything IN, there ARE some possibilities and they are only going to get better. Standard Route was done today, as was the Dike. Below are a few pictures from this morning's drive. I didn't comment about every climb. The pictures say it all. Enjoy...
