How much snow did you get in MWV?  Notches?  Is the ice still where it was on Sunday?

the Valley got about 7 inches, I don't know about the Notch. we had a whole day of rain afterward tho. tune into the Report tomorrow afternoon and you'll know all! [wry grin] right now I am cautiously optimistic, even tho it's been quite warm down here.

The Observatory claimed 15+ inches in the past couple of days.....

I wouldn't be surprised that they had that much or close to it.

We climbed something on Mt Webster today.  I wouldn't exactly call it "in".   Kinda hollow, kinda scratchy, but there was a good amount of snow from top to bottom.  If the ice escapes the onslaught tomorrow, next week should be great. :)
