IOP8 Concludes

Our Doppler on Wheels activities for the night have concluded, bringing an end to the eighth intensive observing period (IOP8) of the Storm Chasing Utah Style Study (SCHUSS).  Our overnight crew tells me they shut down around 4 am.  What does a storm-chasing crew do at that time of morning?  Head to Denny's of course...

Today will be the first Saturday in 3 weeks that I've had off.  I'm going to relax and head up for a short backcountry ski tour in the afternoon to check out the snowpack and start getting into shape for the winter.  


  1. Watch out for those rascally facets!

  2. Where the facets get fatter, you have to ski flatter. Stuck with the south side of the compass today.
