Last two days we had snow. Today nice sunny warming to above 0c. the rest of next week calls for a warming trend. The snow should be off the roads in a day or two. When that happens winter is over.

7 days of above freezing temperatures forecast including a few overnight lows above freezing. Despite breaking a 104 year old low temperature yesterday it looks like its finally over. The section of the MUP that was buried for a month got plowed last week, though they missed the mark in a few spots. At least I can get to the highway without going down a very wet and muddy road now.

Gack. you win. The snow's not quite that deep in the woods around here, and our snowpack is much wetter right now. I haven't ridden any of the MUPs around town, but they are looking clear, i don't know about under the trees though.

I pulled the studded tires of the last bike this morning April 23rd, to the sound of sleet on the roof of the garage.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

EDIT: April 25th, and i've very upset i took the studded tires off the bike. Looking out the window onto greasy snow and ice covered roads and snow coming down.

Snowing, may 11th, 600 feet above sea level.

bleaugh. Riding in the snow has lost its appeal this season.
