It's going to be sunny and 49 today! Tomorrow is going to be nasty - drizzley rain and really windy!
Your weather forecast looks like ours, @flowerbug . Except, our rain with snow above 3,000ft may come Sunday.
That's not quite "upper elevations" here and folks deciding to live in more remote areas will have to be dealing with it.
Not long after I first moved here and having thought that I would be okay living at 3,000ft, I ventured into a little valley on a 4th of July weekend. There was only one house built in the valley, in some cleared pastureland. Probably built during the Depression, there was no one living there. Roads came in from the South but I had hiked in through several miles of forest after following an abandoned logging road along the river and venturing up the creek.
We camped on the creek, a mile or so from the old homestead. A pleasant spot but it froze that night!
Already a young gardener, I decided that 3,000ft was nowhere for me to put down roots. A couple of years later, I moved to 2,500 feet and had enuf trouble with warm-weather crops there. (Migrated another 500 feet downhill, later .)
