    Demo Trail condition tomorrow, 3/8/13 Friday

    Just like everyone else here, I like to ride Demo but I want to make sure I don't mess this trail up by riding on it while it's really wet. Do you guys think Braille/Sawpit is ok to ride on tomorrow? According to forecast, rain will stop at 1am but I've only seen light shower today which started at 7pm here in North San Jose.

    Please advise. Thanks!

    Sorry, that came out kinda messy! The numbers are rain totals from the last 1-24 hours.

    I would check it later though, because this was only through 9:00, and it looked like the heaviest rain came after that.

    Demo got hammered by that last rain, almost an inch, and it's getting pounded now. The 48 hour totals are 0.79 and 1.26 from the closest stations, and I think that misses some of the Tuesday rain. It didn't rain much down in the flats but it will be muddy tomorrow. It's been so dry it will probably be OK by Sat and fine by Sun.

    I think Demo will be fine. I ride the Aptos side a bunch and it has been pretty dry on that side and this rain we are getting now is slight at best. It should make for some pretty good riding I think. I was just up @ Rosalia earlier in the week and by the looks of things we can use a half inch or so.
    I am going to ride West side tomorrow myself in the afternoon. bringing out the SS.

    Just a couple things, when I was there Sunday it was pretty dry. Not like it gets in the summer, but no moisture at all. Also, we did a lot of drain work in the past month on both Braille and Sawpit so they should at least be draining well.
