I'm awake now...it's only 6PM...I've banked five hours of sleep...I'm gonna be needing a couple more hours before I head off for work tonight.
The burnout from last night's debacle notwithstanding, I'll be earning it again tonight...I logged onto the Reno AFD when I woke up, and looked at the remote sensors and saw the Hero Snow making a hasty retreat. Until the next system arrives next week, we'll be doing Spring-Like temperatures. Today's High Temp topped out at 20F above freezing, and 16F higher that yesterday's High. Highest of the last seven days, I'm surprised I haven't heard the Cheeseburger Birds calling yet.
Still, the lingering winter-style show kept the interest of our guests...they've been coming up in droves! We've been doing Land Office Business this month...most seasons, my Mountain is more like my Ghost Town by mid-April. Thanks to El Niño, this surprise bonus has everyone smiling big wide grins.
This season hasn't turned out to be a Drought Buster, but it's moved us in the right direction. So far, so good.
