What February Looks Like

Well, the ski area has finally thrown in the towel and sent out a message that they are closed until further notice due to lack of snow.  For a place that has an annual snowfall of close to 500 inches, that’s just sad and so many other things.

Today it’s 56 degrees, partly sunny and looks like this…

Freezing level is around 8000 feet

What should February in the mountains look like?  Well, here are a few shots from seasons past.

THIS was February 21, 2013

This year the Mt. Baker Banked had to be “postponed” for lack of snow.  They are optimistic that a reschedule may happen in March. In the mean time, it’s a beautiful day here in the mountains but would be so much more fabulous if there was snow!!!  And while I’ve been telling my east coast friends to take a run or two for me, and telling all the lucky riders who have snow to whoop it up and think of me, I’m tired of riding in thoughts only.  The real “rub it in” moment came  when I called our dentist today to make an appointment and found out that he won’t be available for another week….he’s skiing in Idaho!!!

You got snow?  Lucky!!   What’s February look like where you are?
