If you have never seen lightning reflecting off 2' of snowcover...very, very cool and creepy.
Snow started at midnight and had 8" by morning...beautiful to emerge to everything covered in powder.
Weather adds to a trip...just think of the cool stories you'll have later!
Sorry man, I'm not that hard
. I find rain distasteful but tolerable if there is going to be more nice than bad over the weekend. 28 degrees and 25mph gusts is just not something I'll do for a weekend trip. If I were going on a multiday trip that I was already committed too I'd suck it up, but this sucker is looking pretty wild and it's dumping a foot of snow between me and the destination.
My friend is more of a fair-weather camper than I am too!
