Chute Pond trails will remain open this weekend, in poor condition with bare spots
and icy corners in the woods. We will close for the season at 7:00 am Monday, March

Thanks Dan!

The next week of NWS forecasts have 40 somewhere in every day’s forecast. Some could go into the upper 40s like the next two days. The GFS has been relentless over the last 3-4 days continuing to push storms anywhere but here for it’s entire 16 day duration.

The fat lady sings clip below is funny stuff. It was exactly what I was looking for. Too bad they wouldn’t let me embed it. Without further adieu,  here it is.. the fat lady.

MixerKing is right, the trails might be done, but the world does not come to an end in these parts between seasons. As I have said many times over my decade here, this is a great time to escape. The businesses really appreciate your visit, and since they aren’t busy, your favorite places are running specials to compete for the people that are around. They also have time to hang out and chat, get to know you, and make friends. Busy weekends are great, but a lot of times you guys are on a mission to do X00 miles, and I have to keep running too.  At the end of the day I end up  wishing that I could have visited longer with some of you. Here we are.

Greetings and welcome!

Athelstane Weather had 47.3 & sunny yesterday, I saw the car go as high as 53. There is no hope of a big storm next week anymore, at least not according to the last 6 or 7 GFS runs.

Per Dan G’s request.. here it is.. the fat lady.
