On the way into the newsroom I was admiring our fine Freedom Communications flowering trees, now in full bloom and buzzing with bees. I had just gotten off the phone with a friend who said snow coverage for the 40-mile Elk Mountain Traverse ski race was going to be slim. It seemed like winter was in full retreat. Then I open my email, and what's the first message?
WOLF CREEK POWDER ALERT
The Wolf got 10 inches last night, bringing the total year-to-date to 359 inches.
It's not too late to ditch work for a powder day.
