Temperatures nosed dived for the single digits as ravens dipped their beaks, then swarmed to higher perches, waiting for the next feast to drop to the ground. Next time, something with meat, they seemed to be thinking as they eyeballed the two legged denizens of downtown sidewalks.

The promise of significant snowfall failed to materialize much in the city over Christmas, fueling a continuing powder drought. However, out at the Exit Glacier Visitor's Center, the snowpack jumped by 25 inches between Friday and Saturday for a total of 38 inches. The Divide Ski Area gained a trace over the same period, maintaining a more or less steady 16 inches under a lot of clear skies. Downtown, a daily feeding frenzy occupied a multitude of Seward's beady-eyed black barons, unimpeded by the couple or so inches of snow remaining.
