First Snow

First snow of the year, other than a few flurries in October.

This won't last, with warmer temps in the forecast, but the Weather Service is now predicting another La Nina winter a lot like last year.  Time to store away the shorts and put the shovel and tire chains back in the car.  When hunting season ends in about three weeks, it'll be time to get out the skis, snowshoes and crampons.


  1. First snowfall in CdA tonight. Chains in car. Check. Shovel in car. Check. Sleeping bag and emergency eats in car. Check. Traveling companion to Donnerize. Not yet.

  2. Now that's emergency preparedness!
