    Damage Report: Snow totals

    So thankfully we didn't get the storm that was forecasted. With some luck, things will be dry again before too long.

    Here in Superior things melted out quite a bit today and that was with almost no sun and temps no higher than 40. I think Coalton Trail and probably High Plains will be dry by the weekend.

    What say the rest of you? Golden area, Fort Collins...how did everyone fare?

    3-4 inches in Fort Collins on the SE side. Sun came out about 3 pm...most of the snow has melted. Provided we don't get anymore moisture, trails up here should be near good-to-go by the weekend I would think.

    West Fort Collins: I got about 5 inches at my place near the bottom of Maxwell. Even though the sun came out this afternoon and the roads are dry, I still have about 3" in the grass. The foothills look pretty covered from here. Next few days might be skinny tire days.

    Golden 4" of wet snow. STM will likely be dry in 4-7 days depending on temps and wind. GM will probably be similar timing. That means there's a chance of riding this WE, but not much of one unless we get a day of 55F with 25mph breezes to pull the moisture out of the ground.

    I can see the Coalton Trail from McCaslin up to the top of the hill from where I live and as I walked the dogs this morning it was a nice brown skid mark surrounded by a field of white. Not sure why the trail wasn't covered, but who cares. I'll take that as encouragement.

    Now let's just hope whatever is coming in for Saturday doesn't ruin whatever drying takes place between now and then!

    Few inches in Loveland, just a dusting left on the grass. Sun shining for the rest of the week makes DBB good by the weekend in my opinion.

    Agree, things are drying up fast here in FC. Dirt roads east of town were pretty firm for todays spin on the road bike.

    Yep, the snow was off STM trails by 12:30 and now the winds have started drying things out. It might be a good WE for riding afterall.

    Devil's Backbone is already fine. Rode it this evening, no mud or snow, nice and tacky. Best condition it has been in for a while.

    Took the road bike over Horsetooth this evening to look at conditions up there. Shoreline / Maxwell / Foothills / Michaud look like they are going to need a couple more days as they had snow on them in places and appeared sloppy. Saw some people that had tried to hike and they were scraping lots of mud off their shoes before getting back into their cars.

    I didn't go that far, just did 2 laps on Laughing Horse loop, I would imagine it's still pretty muddy down in the valley, probably needs a couple more days.

    Went running at Marshall Mesa last evening and it is still really muddy. Coal Seam, Community Ditch, Valley Trail, all left my legs covered in mud from running. Saw three or four bikers out there...no one actually riding, they were all pulled over and trying to pull the clumps of mud off of their ride!

    Still, MM dries out quick so I wouldn't be surprised if it was good to ride this weekend...not that I care, I'm going to Moab!

    Took a quick look at Blue Sky on my way back from a road ride yesterday afternoon - looked like a mess. Peanut butter mud right now. With the wind today, maybe rideable tomorrow afternoon at the very earliest. Should be good for the weekend.

    Rode the road across Horsetooth again today and it looked much better on Shoreline /Maxwell etc. Should be pretty good tomorrow. Lots of wind and warm goes a long way.

    anyone have snow totals for lyons from the past storm. Or current Hall conditions?

    up here in ned almost all of the recent snow is gone. Only the drifts/ice from the winter remain, which is a lot.

    Did Hall yesterday evening and its dry. Even the loop is fine, only a couple sections of snow in the very shaded areas, maybe 20-30 yards total. Should be great today.

    Couldn't tell ya about the Antelope trail
