Greetings and welcome!

When I was out yesterday the trails were spectacular except where they weren’t. A good example was Eagle Rd by Dockside. It was this perfectly flat flawless ribbon of trail with the occasional ugly mud patch. In some places it was the only snow, but it was a 90% intact base. The roads only had patches of snow where the sun couldn’t reach them and those were slushy. The rest was bare.

It did get into the mid-40s yesterday and there was sun in the morning. There was plenty of melting.

I do believe that I am about to witness the end of the season unfold later today. It is 37 at 9:30am and it is not going to get cold until the other side of the storm. The morning TV weather showed a lot of rain coming followed by less than an inch of snow on the back of the storm. Only one of my forecast models disagrees with that.

I keep reminding myself that I can’t believe in it until I can roll in it, and never change your plans based on a forecast applies to me too, and it goes for bad forecasts as well as good ones.

If it goes off as shown on the TV this morning we are probably done for the year around here. If we only get a little rain and some snow behind us we might ride again. It is very likely that places to the north and west will survive it to ride one more weekend.

For now all that I have is speculation so I am going to run along. Have a good Thursday and thank you for visiting!
