Snow at camp! 4″ fresh snow on the meadow, and it’s snowing hard this morning. Think: skiing, snowshoeing, spring water and green grass next summer.
From the Colorado Avalanche Information Center:
|Avalanche Watch in Effect through 12/15/2012 12:00 PM|
|A vigorous storm system affects the San Juan Mountains south of Red Mountain Pass on Friday. Snowfall is just starting at 5am this morning and will increase in intensity by 8am. Snowfall rates of 2 to 3 inches per hour are possible with widespread 12 to 18 inch accumulations possible by Friday night. Most favored areas around and south of Wolf Creek Pass could receive 2 feet or more. Snowfall tapers off after midnight as the fast moving storm moves east. An avalanche watch means that avalanche danger is expected to reach HIGH within the next 24 hours. If forecast snow accumulations materialize, then natural and triggered avalanches become likely across the Southern San Juan Mountains.|
And a thought for today:
“The Bible talks plentifully about joy, but it nowhere talks about a “happy Christian.” Happiness depends on what happens; joy does not. Remember, Jesus Christ had joy, and He prays “that they might have My joy fulfilled in themselves.”
