December? Is that you?
If you went outside not knowing what month it was, would you choose correctly?
I would pick April. Temperatures near 40, rain, hardly any snow on the running trails? Hello, spring...um...winter?
Yes, I have a ski pass, but this weather is ok with me. I know it can change at any time; a polar vortex could come barreling down on us next week. I'll keep on trail running and hiking as long as I can.
And what does this mean for next fire season? It's too soon to tell. We've had raging fires after winters with record snowfall, and hardly any after dry winters. That being said, there was a 2000 acre wildfire east of here a few days ago. In DECEMBER. Is it really December?
