    can't see the bay from here, but it is pretty clear and chilly.
    i am sure that anything that fell today across the bay was snow. only a couple sprinkles here though.
    i will take a look tomorrow, need to go to town, and maybe pull the crab pot.
    34 degrees right now here at 1200', but no rain in the forecast for a day or two...

    Default snow levels...

    looks like the fresh snow level is about 3600' on sadie peak, but the area you are heading gets a little more snow, being closer to tustemena. i am guessing you are going into either red or marten lake, and i think you can count on the snow line being right about where the goats are. the thing i would be most nervous about would be fresh snow disguising rotten old snow in drainage crossings.
    be careful!

    Sounds good Dave, thanks again! We are flying into Emerald lake.

    Come on snow, hold out for 1.5 more weeks!

    By the way, Curt, the correct term for Homer people is "Homeroids"....as in, the southern Kenai Peninsula has a terrible case of homeroids.

    Default a.m. update

    Curt, we've got some low-hanging clouds over the mountains this morning so it's making visibility a bit difficult. I couldn't see any white stuff from my house last night, but it appears that the tops have been dusted a bit this morning. Sprinkling here this morning so I can only assume it's snowing up top. I will give another update if the clouds blow out.

    Talking you just might need it

    ...depending on how many barley pops you pop

    Evening update: NO new snow on the peaks today, but I'm pretty sure you are going to contend with the old sloppy stuff in the slides and drainages regardless of what the weather brings; there appears to be quite a lot of that hanging up high and I imagine down lower too.

    Rained all day and still raining, I assume it will turn to snow up higher; will let you know in the morning.
