Deep Creek Daily Notes Blog February 7

February 7, 2023: The temperature is getting all the way up to the mid-50s today. Spring is definitely around the corner! But, I read a forecast that mentioned “polar vortex” may be in the works next week…. my fingers are crossed for more cold weather and more ski season! According to Ski South East: “winter is 58% over. Gone. If you consider that the official start to most ski & snowboarding seasons is around Thanksgiving Day/Weekend and move forward on the calendar until the last days of March (and MAYBE a day or two into April) each year – you’ll count about 133 days (+/- a day or two) that we get to play on the snow each winter….”
