Season’s First Snow on the Mountains

By , September 10, 2012

This morning, when the low clouds cleared off the mountains, we saw “termination dust,” the first snows of the coming winter on the peaks of the Coast Range.

We’ve seen fresh snow on the Chilkat Mountains west of us for a couple of weeks, but as far as we know, this is our first snowfall on the Chilkoot side of the peninsula. Our temperatures have dropped about 5° lately; autumn is definitely in the air.

Another sign of autumn comes to us from halfway around the world. They’re performing the ancient (and odd) Abbots Bromley Horn Dance in England today (September 10th). You can see video of that here.

By the way, I’d intended to post this earlier this morning, but the server we used was down, possibly hacked. No Website, no email, no nothin’! Hope that doesn’t happen again.
