Fall is long gone, and winter is actually drawing to a close. Though the drought continues, it has lessened some, meaning that waterfalls are back up and the trails are somewhat muddy again. But the big story this winter: the lack of snow. What reminded me of this is that as of tonight, almost March 1st, the mountains received their first significant snowfall with totals over 6″ in many locations. Global warming? Who knows, but if you like winter, tomorrow might be your last day to enjoy it as warmer temperatures and rain are back in the forecast for the weekend. Here’s to hoping for a blizzard before the end of March.
