    So what's going to be dry tomorrow ?

    F+%^

    NOAA was saying last night that the atmosphere was too capped for big storms today.

    I'm guessing that tonight's showers ought to make everything about perfect for tomorrow. It's been pretty dry.

    Well...

    Pine Valley Ranch and Buffalo Creek (sans CT) should be fun.

    Any chance Centennial Cone will be dry by 10 AM? I've only been there once, and don't remember what the soil is like.

    Half yes and half no. Wait until 2:00 and most will be (except for the treed switchbacks, provided the sun is shining).

    Go north. Soapstone / Red Mountain? Hewlett / Young's / Dadd Gulches in the Poudre Canyon?

    According to the city rainfall gauges (http://www.fcgov.com/flood-warning/) there was little rain north of Fort Collins. Where I was all afternoon, you could see that the sky was mostly clear up that direction.

    I think Soapstone and Red Mountain get muddy very easily, so they may be in bad shape today. Poudre Canyon trails might be dry as it looks like there was less rain up there.

    New mapping tool. This is pretty handy, though not perfect.

    my son was bummed when I told him it would be too wet to ride ... but golf is a good substitute apparently.

    Did it rain a ton elsewhere? We got enough in Lyons to barely make the dirt perfect. Went to Estes last night for the fireworks show and everything was bone dry up there. Just curious.

    And golf is never a comparable substitute

    Pretty good amount of rain in central Fort Collins last evening. I bet we got 1" of rain over an hour or so period. Looks to be drying out pretty well so far. Going out for a ride in the next hour or so, I'll post a ride report after that

    I'd planned on hitting up Soapstone with the wife, son and his fiance first thing this morning for a family ride, but decided to pass after looking at the storm totals last night..

    Were going to head out later this afternoon somewhere.

    Ned trails were good yesterday, sourdough was good today. I don't think Nederland got as much rain as Boulder, I was expecting at least some dampness but it was dry.

    Sourdough, Little Raven and SSV were all excellent today. I think it's been a while since that area got any real moisture.

    LOry was good, perfect in spots. Everything east of the reservoir looked good from the road.

    I was down there this afternoon (Mon) and with the exception of a very few low spots, you couldn't tell that it had rained at all. The trails were great, the traffic getting home, not so much...

    Maxwell and Pineridge were a bit damp in spots, but nothing bad. Probably be completely dry by this afternoon
