The last time I was this fixated on the weather was before my first marathon, when I obsessively checked the race-day forecast in Nashville, hoping that by hitting “refresh” one more time, I would reach a screen announcing: “Weather will be optimal and performance-boosting for marathon runners, especially Amy.”
I’ve been doing the same thing with the weather forecast for Mercersburg, Penn., where below-freezing temps at night mean snow-makers can create more of a base for our little ski resort. Of course, the more snow they can make, the quicker Whitetail can open. And the quicker they open, the quicker I can get into the remainder of my ski-patrol training. And the quicker I can do that, the quicker you can stop listen to me blathering about it.
Tonight’s 36-degree forecast and tomorrow’s forecasted rain are kind of a kick in the pants … but doesn’t the snow look pretty in this webcam shot from this morning?
