Winter Warning

Published by under General Information

The cool Fall days have been wonderful but today’s weather forecast is not as welcome. Rain showers this afternoon turning to snow flurries (above 10,000 ft.) overnight.  YIKES.  Oak hillsides are beginning to turn orange and red so the yellow aspens won’t be far behind now.
