Tonight should be another in this season's long string of good nights even though the mercury is hovering just above freezing at the base. I'll invest extra attention tonight because Springtime returns Friday with a vengeance. Weather Readers on all the Sacramento TV News Shows have been touting the return of 80 degree afternoons all week. Is it just me? I'm not excited for 80F temps in their world of asphalt and steel! I'm savoring this Winter to the last!
Tonight, Jeweler and I will take the field in the second half and run to daylight...full stick and full of glee. The forecast says:
.TONIGHT...NUMEROUS SHOWERS IN THE EVENING...THEN PARTLY CLOUDYThe Ridge Gusts might be trouble, but they will keep the piste squeaky cold...extending the joy for a few extra hours. Good thing too, considering the end of my week (and season!):

ACCUMULATION UP TO 2 INCHES. LOWS 11 TO 21. NORTHEAST WINDS UP TO

It's been a good year, good enough that I'm already looking forward to next year! Looking past those afternoon highs in the 60's this week, to the Golden Promise of Storm Nights, fresh Champagne Powder and New Snowcats working Hero Snow.
