Arrgh, Weather

Man, I had become really spoiled, the weather here in Colorado the last few weeks has been great, melted almost the snow, and the trails were bone dry with the exception of some of the low spots.
Yesterday, six inches of heavy, we snow, melting started today, but the trails are going to be a mudfest for the next few days.

I went for a night ride yesterday in shorts and a jersey. Forecasted temps in the low 80's this weekend. Life is good.

I think people that can still call their trails, trails, and then complain are nuts. My trails are buried under 6 ft of snow until mid april. I can ride rode, or nothing.
