Why worry about it, if it is

Why worry about it, if it is going to snow it is going to snow. 

Right now there is snow on the ground above 9,000' who know what this new storm will bring until it is over. 

My moto has always been..... hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

90% of the time I take more

90% of the time I take more than I need but it is those 10% days that taking extra stuff has paid off. Like taking tire chains during ML season or that extra pair of snow boots etc. If you have it and don't need it you just put it away when you get home but if you need it you're happy you took it.

Yep

I am a firm believer in Murphy's law.

I always prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

Thanks guys. I totally agree

Thanks guys. I totally agree with hope for the best prepare for the worst. Last year we got up there and it snowed 3 feet overnight on our last day and our sleeping tent collapsed. I personally love the snow cause it brings the elk to a lower elv. we'll see how it goes this year!

Snow

You can't always rely on weather forecasts as well. It was suppose to be in the 60's on time in our area when a so called squal dumped 15 inches of the white stuff. It was dusty 2 days later! Good luck and hope the Elk gods are looking down on you !!!
