A spot of wind

I'll admit it - I'm ready for the wind to stop:
But at least we've gotten some precip... got about 0.15" of rain last night. Yep, rain. It did eventually freeze into a little rind here and there, though I think most of it evaporated or sublimated in the wind before sunrise this morning.
EDIT - the little blip of precip just before 10pm is probably blow-over snow from the continental divide. This station is in a fairly exposed location and we'll frequently get a little misting of moisture or dusting of snow on clear windy nights like this as snow is ripped off the peaks and deposited in the valleys below.
