Did I mention California is DRY?

That split flow taking storms to the PNW and moisture from Mexico to Colorado is even stronger than the REX block we had last year. The Sierra has no white on it; zero, zip, nada. Tempertures are in the 60s on the West Slope, with low humidity. No rain, fog, clouds....

Be glad you have something be jinxed, cause there ain't nothing here.

YES!
I am leaving Monday for 2 weeks of interviews for medical residency positions (Neurology). 3 of those interviews are Denver, Albuquerque and Salt Lake. There are a few days between each of the interviews. I was getting worried, but looks like Mother Nature answered my prayers...gonna get some early days in this year on the interview trail!

Beautiful...

Be super careful in the backcountry folks! Last week's storm + high winds established a really, really sketchy scenerio. Best to stay in-bounds for awhile, especially you Front Rangers.

That said. Let's go have some fun in the new POW!!!

That warning is well-placed, Dan, thanks. But, get out there any play!

...and bring back some pictures for those of us who can't...! :
