Howdy All :)

It looks like we're going to have a lot of new snow for the Sunday Christmas holiday. Perhaps even enough snow to merit a tramshoe. Since I missed all of the snow play last winter due to breaking my shoulder :roll: I am looking forward to this snow season.

Snow showers, mainly before 4pm. High near 40. West wind 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. Total daytime snow accumulation of 3 to 5 inches possible.

Woo Hoo! :D Just to let y'all know, Ellen has recovered completely from her broken shoulder and I have volunteered her to break trail for all of us for tram-shoeing to the Peak!
