‘Romantic Forecast Nights’- Jerry Roberts

The Avalanche Review, December 2007


sleeping with radio

and telephone-

romantic forecast night


Rod Newcomb,avalanche guru (one who knows how to say the right thing at the right time and get the best out of you) told me years ago, “You’ve got a tiger of a snowpack in the San Juans!” When we’re out hunting tigers I often reflect on Rod’s sage words.  Helps keep me on edge.  A good dose of fear makes one more humble and more open to ideas.
