Snowed most of last night, so snow totals from this storm upped some more. Though it wasn't really a storm--it was just snow, and almost no wind. How can it be a storm without wind? More excellent Yowsa!, which I polished off in the early afternoon while some sunshine was striking through light cloud cover.
I checked the temperature after that. The forecast high was 15F, but when I checked it was only 2F. Maybe the measuring sticks were all badly off. On the other hand, maybe they were all right. In the sun, with no wind, and Yowsa!, maybe 2F just doesn't feel cold. It was -16F when I woke up, which I think is the coldest it's been this winter.
Then I headed up to ski, where once again very soft trails awaited. Very fine snow crystals were drifting down out of the thin air (no clouds) and sparkling in the sun. The usable part of the parking lot was jammed with overflow parked vehicles across the road, yet I only saw one person the whole time I was out. Probably the crowd was all headed in as I was heading out. It felt crisply cold but not bitterly cold and, again, the big helper with that was zero wind.
By the time I finished the sun was headed for the horizon and sinking fast, and ice fogs were forming up all around. Could be chilly tonight!
