At least it's something. It won't be a bad as it would have been if we
didn't get this upslope/lake effect event.

I'm going up to Whiteface for social reasons...skiing just happens to be
part of the activity. We aren't expecting great conditions, so whatever it
is, it will be fun no matter and there will be plenty of other stuff to do
and lots of good live music all weekedn for Snoedown.

Most of the posts today are pretty depressing. The only thing that can pull
us out is a really big noreaster. I suppose it isn't out of the question,
but it is tough to get hopes up for any big snow events this season,
especially when time is ticking into the next season.
