Snow at 4k, October 2, 2018.
« on: 10/02/18, 11:21 PM »

Just noted this in the Seattle Forecast Discussion:

"The snow level lowered to near 4000 feet early this evening
 behind a cold front. This caused the rain to switch over to snow
 at Stevens Pass, where a couple of inches of wet snow fell."

Sure enough, it's true (NB -- the telemetry is less than clear, but the photo... Smiley ):

I have skied 20" of light powder off Table Mt in September (~ 1973).  However, every year about this time I think of this Oct 5, 2007 thread and I just have to peruse it once more.  It is so cool: http://www.turns-all-year.com/skiing_snowboarding/trip_reports/index.php?topic=7892.0.  It  must have been an amazing first day. 

It can happen anytime now.  Be ready!

Thanks Eric.  A friend sent beautiful pics from there today; great to re-read that report and remember that time, and most importantly, what SnowBell said in the last comment on the thread: "I am reminded what a special part of the planet we live in."
