It’s a bit on the gloomy side this morning, with the Nothing spreading its wings over the Gorge. If it makes you feel any better, there are high clouds above the nothing, so we wouldn’t see blue skies even without the Gorge’s weather bane. In the past, Jimmy at 3 Rivers has promised 2-4-1 steak day will start the first Wednesday after the first inversion, so it might be worth a call if you’ve been waiting for steak night.

Looking ahead to the weather this week, we’ll see west wind at 13-15 late this afternoon. Monday brings east wind at 17-20. Tuesday brings easterlies at 24-28. On Wednesday, the wind switches to west as a front crosses the Cascades, for 23-26 out east.

For you mountain bikers, Post is good, if a little bit greasy. Reports are that Surveyor’s, Knebal, and 8-mile are in great shape. There was a Post Work Party yesterday, Saturday, on Bad Motor Scooter (#158). It’s in pretty good shape right now, and I’d suggest you ride it.

Cheap Gear. Free Membership.

Coming up next weekend, it’s the Hood River Valley High School gear swap. Also next Saturday, there’s a fundraiser for the Post Canyon Trailbuilders’ Fund. $35 gets you all-day shuttles to the top along with a yummy lunch. More information on the Post Canyon Shuttle Day is here. Saturday the 29th is the 44 Road trail work day, aka “Jimmy T and Me Work Party” hosted by Ranger Jimmy T. and New York City Sub Shop. Sunday the 30th is Meadows pass photo day at the Hood River Inn.

Chance of snow below 8000’ this week: 10%. Chance of the mountain opening in the next two weeks: 0%.

Have an awesome day today!
