Its about time that it snowed on the summit! Only a few months until I make my rounds, and the Observatory is one of my favorite stops! I hope it snows up there soon!
Status check time:
It is September 30th and I am looking at my web camera on the lake seeing a cloudless morning. It does not look good for Snow Miser.

May the Force be with you.
I just checked the Higher Summits Forecast and even though there is snow in the forecast for today, it looks like TrishandAlex may have a win. Go TrishandAlex!
Bob I've been doing the snow dance all night for you If it dosen't work at least my legs will be in shape for our next hike.Good luck Bob we still have a few more hours for this thing to happen.
Just to clarify, "snow" on the F-6 is any freezing precipitation. This means sleet, snow grains, graupel, small/large hail, ice crystals, or ice pellets all count for the "snow and ice column". The "Snow/Ice on Ground at 0600" column includes all of these plus accumulations of rime or glaze. Just want to make sure that people are looking at the right columns and now what counts in those columns in case we only get a trace of snow but an inch of snow/ice on the ground.
