I was curious as to how close the weather is to arriving, so I checked the Franktown weather radar just now, saw this and thought “eww”. XFT radar - 20110304 1830

The aviation forecast is equally damp and depressing…

It looks like we’re in for a wet weekend, but it should help wash the snow away. There might be a bit of freezing rain and pellets, which sounds suspiciously like sleet, but if it happens it should be done by the time I’ll be thinking about venturing out into the Big Wide World on Saturday. (If you’re one of a morning freak an early riser, take care on the roads.)

    Ski Patrol here, we don’t actually get to say no to skiing, and have to get up early, so yeah, this will suck.

      On the upside, I’m guessing that a lot of the green on the radar that’s north of the river is going to be snow. Hopefully it doesn’t turn to ice overnight.

    Still raining … joy.
