This is the parking lot at the entrance to Camas Meadows Natural Area Preserve, one mile from Camas Meadows Lodge. As you can see the rain, wind, and snow had little effect on the snowpack. Most of the wind missed Camas Meadows. Wenatchee, less than 20 miles away, was hit hard. The rain helped settle the snow pack and create a solid base for snow sports. A couple of inches of cold snow followed and put a layer of powder on top of the base.

The stormy weather this winter delivered lots of snow and lots of sun. The fronts moving quickly through eastern Washington keeping the clouds on the move. Snowy, sunny winters are the best!

The past week has brought cold weather, with temperatures in the mid-20's during the day but dropping to below zero at night. The record low for this winter was Saturday morning at minus eight. Fortunately, our guests at the cabin had lived in Siberia so they thought the weather rather balmy.

The forecast is for continued clear skies with high's in the 20's and 30's dipping to the teens at night.

President's Day weekend is booked but other weekend days are open. The days are starting to get longer and should be getting significantly warmer over the next month.
