Wishin’ and Hopin’

Snowfall predictions for Redearth Creek in Banff National Park at two different elevations

Some very interesting and enjoyable trip reports today, thanks everyone.

I imagine this old Dusty Springfield song from 1964 would be banned in today’s politically correct world akin to “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”  I would bet that “Baby It’s Cold Outside” will sell more copies this year than in any of the past 50 years. 

I’m wishin’ and hopin’ the weather forecasts are correct. The ever-optimistic Snow Forecast is predicting a wishful 37 cm over the next five days in PLPP. I can’t get too excited when it’s still five days away, but all the forecasts are predicting varying amounts so we should get something. Windy.com is predicting 15 cm for Elk Pass. I’m hopin’ we’ll all be singing this song in a few days It Snowed Last Night.

Alf Skrastins sent a link for the aforementioned Windy.com earlier this fall and I’m enjoying the interactiveness of it. For example, the attached image shows the forecast for Redearth Creek at two different elevations. Click on the image to make it larger.
