I really got it wrong yesterday.... thought it was going to be a quiet, warm, maybe even sunny day, and as soon as I finished the morning report the snow turned back on again, the wind picked up and winter sort of came back. For a while, at least (didn't get that cold, and it was clear at the end of the day. Spring weather!

Today it's again sunny, warm. Nice day to ski, which I am going to do. Before the snow and rain over the next few days. It's been that kind of season, so why change now?

And you'll notice my comments about some of the resorts' reporting. A lot of them are really doing an honest job reporting on the decline of the snowpack; several really are not (and I know a lot of readers comment on that, as well as our reporting). We have 81cm outside here at the base of Akakan; overnight it gets down to maybe -1°C. So when I read some of them, I wonder where they found these miraculous reporting spots where there are meters of snow and where the morning temperature is way below zero.
