Good to hear you survived.lol. We ended up with about 5 inches of snow, it melted pretty fast though. then it was down in the teens for 2 days now its warmin up again. we didnt get the brunt of the storm, we just got little waves coming in as the main storm slide down the coast. it was still fun to get snow in late FEB, that hasnt happened since 1995.
I'm glad that you folks are getting some of that white stuff instead of me. It has been bright and sunny here the last couple of days but a friend of mine send me a email about what he found at his house just north of Tucson this morning.
Almost like spring here the last couple of days. I don't mind some snow but I hate the cold. Good to see someone else gets to enjoy it instead of us for a little bit. In my mind March 1st is the first day of spring, we will get more snow but it won't last long and a lot more nice days.
I just got back from my elk trip to Colorado and must say that I learned quite a bit about hiking in that one trip. I researched all I could on the internet and thought I was prepared going out. For the most part I was but I want to pass on a few major things I learned that helped me drastically!
1. Pack light. I know this may sound like common sense but believe me. After reading everyone's advice on what you need to pack, chances are your pack will end up weighing more...
