We got a break in the weather, enough for the snow to melt away as the sun came out – however no real warming.
Chilly outside, and so I spent an hour yesterday putting a “wrap” on the lever of the Winchester ’73 to ease manipulation and protect the digits. It came out nicely, I suppose.That is about it as far as “improvements” to that rifle.
More rain forecast for this afternoon and through the weekend, turning to snow above 2,000 feet and up in the High Country. The ski resorts have gotten a bounty, so much so that a couple had to close lift operations and figure out how to get skiers to the top of the runs… We are well past “normal” for the snowpack and closing in on the rainfall figures – so no drought, I think.
