    Snow on the summits.

    The snow is not just on Washington this morning. The northern Presidentials are all white. My guess is snow in the trees down to 4K. With a couple of warm days coming up it will be interesting to see if it melts off before a cool down on the weekend. No doubt the webcams on the Obs site will show then snowline. The wildcat cam was acting up the last time I looked and the new Bretton Woods Cam was still looking in shadows but it looks like the snow line on the west exposure may be bit lower

    The latest long range trend I have seen is warmer than normal until mid November.

    The Wildcat Cam came back up,. Nice and green near the top which is just over 4K.

    It can't come soon enough. Me and my dog Shay, were in the Belknap's yesterday, my dog was covered in deer ticks. Not going to the low ranges again, till they freeze over. It was Hitchcocky.

    I was in the Ossipee's today but wore knee high black gaiters, so I didn't notice any. Will heat those gaiters in the dryer tonight. Did see the Presidential Range covered in snow, looked like some on the Franconia Ridge also.

    Does seem like a noticeable uptick (pun!) in ticks lately. Haven’t seen much all year and then wham all of sudden the October cycle seemed to hit with the mild weather.

    Oct-Dec and Apr-Jun are the tickiest months if you’re a NH dog.

    I’m also headed to the Dax. Saddleback, basin, haystack and camp at the gorge. I’m going to roll the dice and skip the spikes.

    Snow on the Kanc. https://boston.cbslocal.com/2021/10/...ampshire-snow/. Forecast for tomorrow is more snow.

    Glad I got my new Nokian Hakkapelitta G3s for the new Toyota. But I would not mind waiting to use them

    Saw a few people with spikes this weekend. For myself they would have been less stable with what little ice there was. Still impressed how much mud there is in the dax, it seems never ending. Stopped at Blake and Colvin on the way out. Great views from Colvin.
