A warning for those of you who like to play in the backcountry: recent weather patterns can mean a higher danger of avalanches. A small avalanche on Mt. Bachelor on Wednesday serves as a reminder; when weather conditions change quickly and we get a lot of snow, the danger is there. Andy Goggins with Mt. Bachelor says they have daily avalanche patrols: "Especially with the last week's storm cycle bringing in about 57 inches of new snow in less than 5 days.” No one was injured in Wednesday's small avalanche and it was business as usual on Mt. Bachelor yesterday.  Weather experts remind you to watch the conditions and your immediate surroundings. Ken Boone with the Weather Channel: "Also the terrain your in because that can be a factor as well.”

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
