Jan 30, 2020

Greetings and welcome!

Yesterday I saw roadside trails from Rapids Resort east to the gas station on Parkway & C, down Parkway to Hwy W, and east to Crivitz. All of those trails looked good with ample snow and recent grooming. Road trails are a different story. Sunny spots have gone bare. Some areas still hold good ice, but that is hit and miss. Parkway was mostly bare except for in shady spots. If Parkway is bare you can bet that other road trails took a hit.

The TV news has started a daily count of cloudy days. Today is 8 days since we had a sunny day. That is a good thing at this time of year, especially with no meaningful snow since last weekend.

The part that has my attention this weekend is the warm temperatures expected. Friday looks ok with a high near 30. Saturday and Monday are expected to be 35ish. Sunday is the bad one. The NWS forecast is for partly sunny and a high of 44. My guidance agrees, and maybe adds a degree or two. Sunny and 45 is not what we want to hear. Thankfully it is Super Bowl Sunday and a lot of people are focused on that.

There is a chance of snow next week Tuesday and Friday. They are not big storms, but we could use it on road trails and to freshen up the regular trails.

I have another event for this weekend.. TheĀ Annual Farfromsnoozin’ Bed Races on Townsend Flowage at Birch Hills Resort in Townsend. Here is a link.

As always I will be at Rapids Resort Saturday from noon until at least 5pm. Stop by, say hello and get a picture. If I don’t ask you please ask me. I like doing it. I get a break from the bar and get to meet people. Stop in if you are in the area!

Have a good Thursday and thank you for visiting!
