BOTTOM LINE
 Comments: Less activity than expected, even without persistent weak layers. There may have been more activity mid storm that filled in, but probably nothing very large. Almost all activity (except for the possibility of the Cramer slide) seem confined to surface layers in wind-affected terrain.
