The snow has arrived!
Personally I love warm weather and sunshine. Winter is long enough around here, and if I can get a few more hikes in before the snow hits, I'm not one to complain.
But even I had to admit the dry, unseasonably warm November was dragging on a bit too long. Things were getting awfully dried out around here, and it was so warm we noticed some trees starting to bud. Several ski resort opening days got delayed, and at the shop we met some disappointed visitors who were here for their ski vacations and had to settle for a few open runs at A-Basin.
When Thanksgiving is a week away, the white stuff is a welcome sight, and last Thursday, we certainly got some--along with colder temperatures adequate for snow-making--just in time for the resorts to open.
Then this morning, more snow! I'm not sure what the totals are, but it is definitely starting to feel a lot like winter time here on Frisco Main Street. I think I'm ready for Thanksgiving now.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, we'll be open only from 9-11 am on Thanksgiving morning, then we will be closing and going home to relax and celebrate the holiday.
