Just before our recent storm, I expressed hope we’d be able to use the snowfall to move firewood (see We’ve Been Warned). Unfortunately, my main Southeast Alaska weather axiom proved true once again: snow is a transitional weather condition.
The next day, the wind switched to the south and the thaw began. We strapped on snowshoes and hiked the trail, hoping to cut a decent path before things got really sloppy.
We had a pretty hard slog. When we passed through the Blowdown, Michelle post holed with her snowshoes, not an easy thing to do. She asked me to take a photo, so I did.
Since then, a lot of the snow has melted away. Little by little, spring takes hold.
