Icy Roads

Yesterday was a nice transition from the wetter and dreary day we had on Sunday to today when there was some pretty good blue skies and morning temperature of -2 C.  For awhile yesterday the freezing level must have been easily near the 1500 m or 5000' level, because there were small avalanches sliding off the rock faces on the sunny side of the valley quit high up. Today though the air was crisper and things have frozen up.  Walking where roads were plowed or walk ways shoveled is treacherous after the freezing rain on Saturday night and rain Sunday.  It's safer to wade through the snow than try to stand up on the edge of a road or a side road.  Grizzly
