Blue skies, with a breeze that gusts,
24 degrees F,
28.88" of Hg pressure and rising,
The USFS Fire Danger Class is Moderate,
The Cascades Brook is at 3.8" of flow with some ice buildup on the edges.
In addition to all of this, the pile of construction debris in front of the Lodge was whisked away, and that puts things back in order after all the previous excitement.
For hikers out there, the ground is frozen HARD this morning and you can feel it when you walk. The bright sunshine and clear skies make up substantially for the cold and as long as you are well dressed and keep moving it is pleasant.
