Freaky Winter

What strange winter it has been recently. Take the following:

Auburn trails are dusty. Not all trails are this dry; in fact most are perfect. But in those sections that see a lot of sun exposure, you can see dust follow feet, hoofs and tires as they travel the trails. In January.

Up near Grouse Ridge, there is very little snow. You can drive in all the way up Bowman Lake Road to the turn off for Carr/Feely Lakes and beyond. This is at least 5500' elevation without significant snow. In January.

I guess I am happy about this in a myopic, self centered way, but I am concerned that if this continues, this will be a rough winter on the state. But then again, last March was crazy wet, so we will have to wait and see.
