We’ve got some active weather at our door this morning. An upper level clipper low over Ontario this morning will track eastward and be over the region by midday.

About Today’s Photo:
I made the climb up Crow Hill above the Camel’s Hump Nordic Center yesterday. The snow was perfect! The view of the Hump from the top was nice and close through the trees. The decent was lovely!
