Craig's FAR Update 2001/12/14: Cruising the Foam
I was still pretty optimistic yesterday evening, despite the fact it was raining in town, but by 1:30 in the morning the snow in our yard had that rain dimpled look that can only mean trouble. However despite the moans in the locker room, I found the untracked stuff up top not too bad. It was admittedly more like skiing soft styrofoam that soft powder, bat at least it wasn't tatters and gravy. When it was well chopped, it seemed just fine to me. It seemed to cool down during the day, so hopefully the precip that is predicted will be solid.
At 3:40 in the afternoon it is 0 C and snowing at the house.
