Hey winter, come to daddy!
When I left stick time in Pasadena late on Sunday afternoon, there was a definite nip in the air -- something not felt out here in the San Gabriel Valley in a few moons. It now officially feels like autumn and things are even better in the Sierra, where snow fell the last couple of days. The Tahoe resorts also got a few inches.
The above shot is from a webcam at Mammoth Mountain's main lodge. The resort is reporting five to seven inches and appears on track for their Nov. 12 opening. I did notice the resort had not yet posted lift ticket prices on their website, sparing me my usual kineption fit. At least for now.
In other winter activity news, the Kings host the Sharks tonight at Staples and it will be fun to see if the local boys can bounce back from their major case of the yips that resulted in a lopsided loss to Phoenix on Saturday.
