I went for a short walk to assess post-storm conditions in Rescue Creek. Inevitably, I ended up warbling Rescue Me, the R & B hit first recorded by Fontella Bass in 1965.
The majority of the slides were on SE aspects with 2-3 on a southerly slope. They seemed to initiate in the storm snow but then slid on the crust, wind or sun, beneath. Hard to definitely quantify, but perhaps 1-2 of these may be closer to a D2 than D1.5. I did not count the piddly little sluffs.
This was the largest of the 10 sluffs of note. Seems as though it could have easily knocked you off your feet and pushed you into the numerous little trees that are in this path.
This was the only sluff noted on northerly terrain.
