It’s our first snow for the 2017/2018 ski season! About 3-4 inches fell from Thursday night through all day Friday. It’s possible to ski at Pincushion but there is a lot of water draining from the trails since the precip. started as mostly rain before changing to snow Thursday night. Plus there a a few downed trees from the 50-60 mph winds on Tuesday.
OK, this has nothing to do with skiing or ski trails, but I was able to attend the late 60’s/early 70’s folk rock music icon’s concert in Minneapolis Sunday night. It was plain cool to watch and hear his music since he’s approaching 75 and had to escorted on stage since we guessed he’s partially blind now. But since he was finishing up a 20+ concert cross North America tour he may have just been fatigued too. Sixto Rodriguez put out the albums Cold Fact & Coming from Reality in the early 70’s but the albums never sold (even though they are fantastic) and was dropped from his label. His music did gain a foot hold in Australia later on and was really big in South Africa, giving inspiration to the anti-apartheid Afrikans even though some of his music was banned for play on the radio.
Here we are in October, cooler days and nights, but more RAIN. If it were only snow we’d have 3 feet on the ground now! At least the sun was out today to dry things out before a little more falls this weekend.
