    Nothing white falling up here yet, and it's been weeks since I got out to Moon.

    And Months since I got out to Lackawanna SP.

    And I've never explored Prompton.

    Other ideas?

    We got 3+ inches overnight here. Another snow ride at Roaring Creek is not what I had in mind. I would do Prompton or Merli if there's little to no snow there, but it's 1hr 30m drive, so conditions need to be good. I guess moon lake or moosic mountain are other options. There's really no snow in Wilkes-Barre?

    My in-laws live very close to Prompton, so I can check on snow conditions with them later today.

    They have five inches so far at Roaring Creek. An hour & a half is a little far, I'd do the forbidden mOOn if it's ridable. Let's see if wyatt, naner, tateb, etc. chime in. This is a great big can of suck.

    I can see some whiteness on the hills but not much, could be leftovers from the week but I just can't recall. Zilch in the valley. Currently zero. No traces on the cars parked in front of my apt.

    The word on Prompton - no snow last night, but it's possible that trails will have an inch or so of icy, crunchy garbage that never melted. Moon Lake might be best option tomorrow

    I'm cool with whatever. Moosic Mtn is a fun place too, way more wind exposed though.

    I'm flexi - you two "call the ball" - where/when - see you then.

    Wish I had boingy bike for it, but alas not far enough through the rebuild yet.

    Which reminds me, I need to get off my butt and go work on that thing.

    This is from right outside Aristes this morning, I'd say that's out....... I imagine Natalie is probably worse. MoonLake tomorrow works for me.

    Can anyone closer to the mOOn report on conditions? It looks like we got four inches or so here.

    I see grass still here 4 miles away from Moon Lake. Certainly less than an inch and not enough to even care about. Everything is so clear right now I'd ride the roads to the park No need to worry about snow plows or anything.

    We've got about 18 inches near Pittsburgh, so stay on the eastern side of the state

    Love Moosic Mt, and haven't been there in about 8 months. It's 1h20m for the Danville crew. I'd be happy with it or moon lake, you guys decide. For me the earlier the better.

    Let me know what you guys plan to do. I may be in depending on the time. Looks like it could be the last chance for a somewhat snow-free ride for a few weeks. We're supposed to get hit again mid-week, and it could be further north.
    smells like cotton candy.....

    I contest that.

    The last time we rode together I tried to get you to bike on a frozen stream, fall in, and die of hypothermia.
