Jamie and I went out riding last night and we had good conditions. Today it can't even be called poor, in my book. Is it over for the season, as some people have talked? I would say no, we have a long time before Old Man Winter gives up his hold on the north country. I just wish he would drink some Ensure and get some mussel back in his grip. These roller coaster weather patterns are getting to everyone. Forecast is calling for temps to drop and all we will need is a little snow on top after everything is frozen back down.
Update: 5:30pm Temp has dropped to 32. Let the freezing begin.
Let me clear up some misunderstandings about my report for today. We did not lose the base on the trails. The base we have is solid ice from all of the freeze and thaws that we have had this winter. The snow on top of the base took a beating from the R last night. Things are starting to freeze back down at 6pm as the temp has dropped below freezing and all we'll need is some snow on top of the base to be able to ride again. Will it be perfect conditions? Who knows, but at least it will be something to ride on, most areas have nothing.
