I had a few moments between interviews and thought I would check on conditions at Paradise at Mount Rainier National Park. When I saw the photo, I thought I should pass it along.

Here is an image from the Webcam at the new visitor center looking toward Paradise Inn.

Checking weather data, at 2 p.m. it was downright balmy at 27 degrees. But in the last two mornings, temperatures fell to -1 degree. On Monday morning, wind chills were amost -25 degrees.

According to the Paradise weather station, there is 36 inches of snow on the ground.
