I am happy to say that it is not (yet) raining (much) in Myoko.

It's sunny, mostly, which I guess is nice, but it's also way too much like spring, which worries us.

The official temperature at Akakan this morning was 5, but the car and the illuminated temperature sign down in town have it currently at 11. Add on a pretty strong wind from the west, and we're watching snowpack getting eaten right before our eyes. The clouds also keep racing in from the west, so that predicted rain might fall at any time.

An interesting local fact: the people here grumble when the snow falls all the time (the more normal condition here), but they're worried now when we don't have a lot of snow and they can't use their heavy machinery. The guys may complain, but they secretly like messing about with big diesel-powered snow movers and making perfect snow walls and clear parking areas. They need more snow to feel complete - as do the ski areas, who are not posting the actual decline in snowpack.

Winter looks like it might return later Monday into Tuesday. Fingers crossed.
