Hi Ellen,
Yes, this winter has been somewhat of a surprise re. rain & snow, and it's barely Feb. I'm sure you'll be out there in shorts & a T rolling around in it!
Maybe this storm will give us the base we need to shoe up to the peak via the direct route to Miller saddle.
Btw, did you read the RMRU acct. of the couple who had to bivy down in the Summit Hut until searchers got to them, they used those sleeping bags in there, (something a certain BB knows about).
