Mostly Grey With a few Bright Spots

The temperature remains very stable at just above zero in the morning, climbing to 3 or 4 C as a maximum for the day.  There was some very light snow for a short while in the morning, then it turned to light rain and then it was just grey, with a slight glimmer of some clear sky above the valley clouds.  The trees shed most of the their snow on the mountains up to about the 1500' level, which seems where the freezing level must be holding at.

Took a bit of a hike around in the woods today up the valley and saw lots of deer tracks and a couple of rabbits that were all white and hard to spot until you were almost upon them.  No plane in the valley today though, saw the Pacific Coastal bus go by.  The Ruffed Grouse are feeding on the Mountain Ash berries that are still persisting on some of the leafless Ash trees.  They must taste good, when all the normal greenery and insects those grouse so enjoy are all covered up by snow.  Grizzly
