Looks as if we're going to get another significant round of snow starting late tonight or tomorrow morning. A possible 6-8!!!! I'm getting a little tired of this...

Yay! <3 Snow... I could not live up here if I wasn’t stoked on getting as much snow as possible... until April at least... even then I end up missing winter pretty quickly...

I live just a couple of minutes south of Concord. We were supposed to be getting snow most of today but it was already mixing with rain when I left for work around 7:30am, so I'm not sure Concord will pick up much snow from this.
Have a quiche, now, or maybe a tort.  You deserve it!

FYI West Side Road by the strawberry fields near Cathedral Ledge has some of the worst frost heaves in the area.  Especially on the right side going into town.

BEWARE!!!

It was an amazingly beautiful day here in the Valley. bluebird sunny and it even got up to the low 40's. I've been checking out Black Pudding every week this winter and it never came IN, until last Thursday. I kept trying to get friends to go over & climb  it, but everyone was busy until today when I sucked Brad in. I was worried that I wouldn't be climbable, but I was wrong. Turns out that it was in very reasonable shape. I don't know how long it will last, but if you want it I suggest grabbing it immediately.

totally incredible day here in the Valley. 49 degrees, bluebird, just the tiniest of breezes... it looks like a god day to ride the Kanc for the first time this year.

Goofer's fell down last night or this morning. I figure that's a sure sign of Spring!

when I was out on the MTB this afternoon I had a look at the South Buttress. it was actually looking pretty good. I would imagine that Hotter Than Hell will be OK soon, or at least P1. not so sure about the crack tho. stuff is drying out quickly tho... it was 28 when I got up this morning, but warmed up to a sunny 40 this afternoon.

I went down to the North End this morning and although Thresher and the pillars were done for, the slab looked good. who knew? I'll bet that this is the last of the Valley ice.

the MTB trails have been getting pretty dried out. I rode Rattlesnake Ridge from Redstone to the Sidehill intersection and back on Monday and it was fantastic. bluebird and 65 degrees!!! 

unfortunately it's raining today, Tuesday, and looks like it's going to rain on and off for the next couple of days. of course that will help clear the ice and snow off the rock, so it's not all a bad thing.
