Snow Cover: Need Snow
Date of Report: February 18, 2017
There just isn’t much good I can report as the weather forecasts were correct and warm weather hit the area yesterday. There is good riding where the trails are shaded by the woods but getting there requires riding over a lot of slop and dirt.There is a lot of bare pavement on road routes. Lakes are slushy. Stay by the barrels when crossing.
The forecast is calling for the same warm weather until next Thursday when a cool down is supposed to start. Then on Friday, the prognosticators are calling for 5 to 8 inches. That certainly is not a guarantee as too many storms, as they get closer, can track more to the north or south than anticipated. We’ll keep an eye on that one.
