    A little early but it was snowing this afternoon up along RT 2 in northern NH this afternoon. No accumulation but a bit early (10/12) for my taste. The cause of the snow is most likely cold air with trapped moisture hitting the mountains from west of here causing upslope snow.

    Time to check to see if I need new snow tires. :)

    Been awhile, lately I do mostly dayhikes some long some short. Probably the last long one was in New Zealand a few years back. 10 years of section hiking the AT with a backpack on most of the time got the backpacking bug out of me. I had one planned last year north of Baxter for three days but Hurricane Irene came to visit and they evacuated the park.

    That front pushing through made it a corker of an afternoon around here. Cool, brisk and color on the trees.
