      1. Have you noticed the rain? The pouring, dripping, monsoon-like weather? We were supposed to visit the husband’s family in ID for Christmas, but have decided to stay home because the pass has been so…impassable. Weather looks to be improving here, so we’re hoping to get a hike in up near Cushman on Saturday.

I will watch for your hike! (Christmas Day looks like the best day. If not for family obligations, I would be out there!)
