    Rainy Weekend - Mar 6-8

    Just checked the forecast for Twin Mountain. Highs about 38 for the next three days, with rain on Friday and Sunday. Nasty! I'd trade it for 10 degrees and windy in a second.

    Sounds like a good weekend to work on taxes.

    Hmmmmm. I might be forced into housework. Was hoping to put that off for another month.

    I'm hoping to get out and do a little local something on Saturday. I'm leaning toward Rumford Whitecap.

    We are going to be stubborn and still go on our previously scheduled trip starting Saturday morning. Hope the rain ends by then and keeping my fingers crossed that we will beat the worst of it down on Sunday? Here's to hoping.

    I checked the NWS for Twin Mountain, Lincoln, Bartlett, Bretton Woods, Franconia, and Gorham. Every place shows mostly sunny on Saturday with a mild temperature.

    The NWS Winds Aloft forecast indicates there will be a pretty good breeze from the northwest above 3000 feet.

    The last time I checked...

    7:00am = 49mph
    1:00pm = 40mph
    7:00pm = 28mph

    Looks like another Owl's Head day???

    Forecast for Saturday in Franconia area is sunny and 40 F, so I will dh ski Cannon for the first time this season and let that back-country snowpack solidify before I tackle any more NHHH peaks.

    We are skiing in Maine. Hopefully sunday we will be able to get comps as we bought a package some time ago with a big group.

    Let the snow consolidate for the 14th~ when I'll be hiking!

    Yay for Owl's Head!!

    Okay, so I don't think I'll be venturing out there this weekend (do hope to climb it sometime in March, though), but I'll definitely be somewhere in the mountains...

    Just started to snow here in Tamworth - some of the largest snowflakes I've ever seen (some like an inch in diameter) - pretty neat to see! I suspect it'll be changing over to immature snow in awhile.
