Still plenty of snow on the summit when I went by this afternoon.

I've seen frozen stuff - rime ice, graupel, snow, in every month of the year in the Whites. Makes me miss the cold. Beats 100 days and 90 overnights all summer long and having to run the car AC at 6 am in the morning going to work. 4 more years until retirement and seeing Texas in my rear view mirror...

Starting to sound like Mac Davis there. :)
Of course I am sure Lubbock is even worse than DFW.

Almost three weeks before I go through there on 6/24. Hopefully some sunshine and warmer temps can make a difference between now and then. :sun

It would be nice if more summer like weather were to get here, but I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for it :)

The record high on Mt Washington is 72F. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a warm sunny day.

Finally looks like 3 sunny days in a row this weekend at or slightly above the average temp. That is going to burn up a few snowfields but not some of the deep snow spots in the shade and trees that luckily are not on the AT.
