I was kind of bummed last night when we were gettin precipitation, but not of the white kind. The good news came later when we started to hear thunder—always a good sign up here that things may head to snow. And, sure enough, we start the morning with perhaps 20cm of fresh. And it continues to snow.

Pretty strong wind right now, but it's actually come down a lot from the shaking the house had during the night. Apparently there were really big winds all day off the coast here; the Coast Guard website currently shows 18 meter/second NNW winds all across this part of the Japan Sea. Which is also good news for us on the other side of the front range mountains.

The only bad thing this morning is the incomplete news that I have for you. I complain a lot about this, I know, and I'll stop (once things are in full operation, it's pretty easy to keep up on things). The town report didn't come out until 11am yesterday (which is not the decision time for most skiers) and the areas were pretty bad about sending out stuff to the town, or posting on their own sites. But here's what I do have for you:
