The rain is still falling, folks, and it's 50 degrees out at midnight. It might as well be Halloween. There's still some skiable snow at the Bait Hole but take your rock skis and do not assume that any ice on the bogs is safe. Wax for soft wet heavy snow. There is now rotten ice out there so be careful on the bogs. You may be better off avoiding any bogs until the temperature falls below freezing early in the week, if indeed the weather decides to do what the weather forecast says it will do... It might as well be mud season.

Just tell yourself: it's better here than in Northern California right now...
