Last night we had approximately 2" of rain.
That is ALOT of rain for one night,
and that was on top of the spring time swollen wetlands up in the Cascades.
As a result the Cascades Brook is at 1'4"!
The Cascades are a white frothy swollen torrent,
and you can hear it throughout the woods.
Presently it is 9:18 am and the conditions are:
57.7 degrees F and rising;
79% humidity and falling;
28.82" of mercury and falling;
The air is still;
there is bright sunshine periodically broken by a passing cloud;
the USFS fire danger was MODERATE,
but at the moment I would say that it is LOW to NONE.
Get out there and enjoy the day!
The new steps on the switchback up the Cascades should help, and the parking area is open after the recent driveway reconstruction here at the lodge.
