Red Flags Comments: 
Wind didn't affect the upper reaches as much as I thought it would from yesterday, we poked around a couple aspects on Toledo and didn't find any signs of instability. Dug a couple of hands pits and did some cuts to try to make something go, everything was right side up and bonded well to lower layers. That may change as the new wave of snow comes in today through tonight. We'll see.
