Snow is back, but not for long!

The past few weeks have been a tease of spring.  We warm up and melt the snow... then it returns.  I have to admit... I have been running in the cold snow.  Slushy snow, not so much.  
I signed up for a trail marathon in June and Summer has been studying with me on learning more about trail running techniques. 
Back to snow... before it all melted I wanted to do some skiing.  I asked Dawn's brother if he wanted to join me and we hit the slopes.
This was the final photo of the day.  My muscles were starting to get tired and I was getting a little sloppy with my cuts.  The freezing rain glazed the surface and hills that were not used as much were very icy.  When I hit the bottom of this hill I was going 32 mph and I couldn't get my skis to cut into the ice to slow down so I went careening down the hill.  Fun times! Nothing broken. 
Warmer temps on the way! Today we will start out with sun then more clouds by the afternoon with temps climbing into the lower 40s. Cloudy & chilly tonight then rain starts working in later tomorrow. The rain for Wednesday will be scattered and light and mainly later in the day with temps reaching the lower 50s. Warmer on Thursday with more rain showers on and off through the day. Heavier rain expected later Thursday into early Friday morning as colder air races back in for the end of the week and start of the weekend. A few snowflakes may mix in, on the back side of the rain, early Friday, but little to no accumulation is expected at this time. Fairly dry weekend with chilly temps Saturday and a little milder on Sunday.

The long term forecast models do not have any snow for the next couple weeks. We may go the rest of the month without any big snows.  BUT... March is when we historically can have big record snows.  So we are in the clear for a while, but we don't have the all-clear just yet. Have a good one!
