It snowed for 3 hours and this is all we get at the 2pm ob:

METAR KMWN 031747Z 27038KT 1/16SM FZFG VV001 M04/M04 RMK VRY LGT ICG SUN DMLY

No temperature summary, no precip data, no snowfall total.

Nevermind. Looks like Marty stepped up and fixed everything.

1.8" of new snow in the past six hours.

Any chance of shipping some of that snow down here, d'y'spose?

I see the summit is reporting FU....is that METAR for smoke?

Is that smoke from the Cog....which I see in the webcams right now? I've never seen so much, must be the light winds.

Also, check out the noon image on the deck cam. Everyone is lined up along the railing watching something.

The Cog has been running extra trains on the hourly runs for days. Leaf peepers are out in force!

The Auto road was open as far as treeline for most of the last week, so tourist demand for reaching the summit has been way up there!

Looks like a GREAT day to be up there!

That is smoke from the cog running between Lakes of the Clouds and the summit. Seems to be a new spur for them.

Moi? Maybe I need to hike up there and check it out. I am packing the car and heading north in the morning - at your service.

Turns out there was some exCitement on the cog after all...just a few hours later than I thought. Check out the observer comments.

I cannot tell you how many emails I have received because I forgot to include one little letter in my observer comment (the letter "C" in "excited", for those who do not read the comments). On a positive note, at least it is good to see that people are reading the comments though.

It was a good story. Those are the kind of things we like to read about, and I make much worse mistakes when typing.
