November 24, 2010

Hi Folks,

As every year goes by I feel ever more strongly how fantastic it is to be able to live with people I love, in a place that I love, doing what I love to do... I truly wish that you enjoy this special day and enjoy it with people that you love. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

I don't have a whole lot to say right now as I've been over the top with work and the holiday, so here's an abbreviated Report. The weather has been very up and down, but still quite cold at night. That's good… A system from the North brought major winds here in the Valley and vicinity all day on Wednesday, leaving debris and downed trees everywhere and causing some scattered power outages. That was bad, but at least it was cold and we were lucky not to have any major problems here in the Valley. It looks as if another system will be moving through tonight, bringing more cold temps and the proverbial Wintry Mix. This is really the kind of thing we're been waiting for as it will fill in things with snow and build the ice. I'm hoping to get up into Crawford Notch on Saturday to scope out the state of things and possibly get up into the ravines on Monday. I've got my fingers crossed, cross yours too.

FLASH - On Friday morning we got our first significant snowfall here in the Valley. Probably only around 3/4 to 1 inch, but it's very cool. It's now officially winter...
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective November 27, 2014
While there was ice forming in the lower elevations this past week, the 1.25 inches of rain and temps almost in the 60's we had on Tuesday killed it all. As of Wednesday everything was back to ground zero. There is likely still ice in the upper elevations, but even it will likely be suspect. I'm leaving the IceCON rating at a 1, figuring that things will hopefully come back on the Mountain fairly quickly, but I doubt that will be the case for the lower elevations for another week or so. Especially with another warm front on the way for late in the weekend through the early part of next week!
Huntington Ravine UNKNOWN, lots of snow

If you can bang a pin in with your ice axe without anyone yelling at you and you packed the whiskey 'cause it is the only thing that won't freeze, you're probably alpine climbing.
