OK OK OK!!!!!!!!!!!! Here ya go....an update....and a few shots, with glory!

Low this morning wa 15F.....with 6 inches of snow falling here at the house. Cleared for a bit, then the snow showers rolled back in.

Presently 33F, no wind, and a light snow falling.

After plowing for 2 1/2 hours, I stopped at the house for coffee and shot this....

Saw a Facebook photo of someone skating on Lake Mary a couple of days ago, perfectly clear ice, light snow cover on the mountains. Guess that'll be the last of THAT nonsense till next year.

We have clearly entered our cold December days....historically the coldest month here on the east side each winter.

Presently 6F and zero wind. The ice is building up FAST!

There were 3 lines led (1 by me) on Chouinard falls. Protection was good. Left side was very thin and not formed for the most part. Bottom part of the main wall was not thick enough to be climbed (by me at least). Approach was not as bad as I thought it would be. Not a snow trail, but doable for those who want to play on some early ice. Took us about 45 mins or so without hauling ass.

Weather beginning to move in here....finally getting dark in the sky.

Currently 39F with gusty winds. Local forecasts are calling for 3 to 6 feet of snow in the higher elevations by Monday morning. I suspect the town of Mammoth Lakes will see at least 3 feet.

Hey Dean! Been wondering when we would get an update. Raining in the valley but it is COLD on the CV side so I anticipate it changing over soon...

I'm driving to the bay right now, thanks for convincing me to go around.

I hate going that way, but on a day like today, it will be faster.

Capt., I bet you guys get some white by tomorrow morning.

Sorry I missed you the other day...you should have banged on my window. I saw you there, but was on the phone and had to run back to the house.

C'mon back up!
