Closed for too much snow!

By now I'm sure nearly everybody has seen or read the news, but the amount of snow we've accumulated out here in the Pacific Northwest is amazing! In fact, so much snow fell in a 2-week period that many of our local ski areas were closed due to avalanche danger.

Unfortunately, by the time the roads were reopened, the temperatures warmed up and the snow turned into what is famously known as Cascade Cement, so deep and heavy in some places you came to a complete stop in a foot or two regardless of pitch.

Oh well... the good news is the weather has settled down, the groomers have done their thing to smooth out the heavy stuff, and the sun is supposed to be out this weekend!
