Subject: Gothic 7 a.m. update

Avalanches: No idea of slide activity- cannot see a thing.
Weather: Light snow during the day Wed. with 5″ new, then strong wind late day and only light snow before wind lets up and snow increases some, dying down around 3 a.m. or so. The 24 hour totals are 12 1/2″ new snow and 0.86″ of water as the snowpack is at years deepest of 88″. Currently light SW wind and a very light snow and of course obscured clouds, which is all we have had for the past week or century (I get confused anymore). I hear it may clear by June though.
