Good Morning

Today is high clouds and temps in the 40-mid 40’s.  All roads are open with no controls so no need for tire chains today.  The weather service is not calling for any weather this weekend.  We did get 4-5″ of snow early this week.  But the snow is thin.  I looked this morning and there are still some areas for snowplay.  The snow also is a bit dirty.

Well today is a bit of a Yucky day.  We have had rain for the past 2 days.  There are some areas to play in the snow but it is limited.  So if you have the option you may wan to wait and see what next weekend brings.

Rain is the word this morning.

Today would be a good day to take care of project at home, go to school, or maybe even work.  As today would not be fun for snow play.  We have been getting rain on and off since yesterday.  The weather service is calling for the storm  to cool off during the weekend.  But for today I would not come up.

Beautiful Day

We have snow for snowplay.  The weather is blue sky with high in the mid 50’s light wind.  Roads are open with no control so no tire chains are needed.

The only problem I can foresee for today will be the traffic.  So if you can be here in Wrightwood by 9am or come on up after about 1pm after many of visitors are starting to leave you will have the best chance of missing the traffic.
