Global Warming IN YOUR FACE
Christmas day was so exciting...especially because the prospect of heading up to Mount Baker for a day of snowboarding in 20" of fresh powder was waiting for me on the 26th. I couldn't wait. No other ski resorts have been fully open in the northwest because it has been an unseasonalby warm winter. To my surprise and utter disappointment the 20" of fresh powder turned into a slushy of brown muddy horror by 10 am since the temperature was 40 degrees!!! 40 degrees at the end of december at 5,000+ feet of altitude.
So...the word on the chairlifts is global warming is the culprit. According to these Bush lickers there isn't enough evidence and we should continue on with our present day defying the rest of the world antics. I say better safe than sorry and let there be powder.
