    get out the snow tires

    heavy, wet, wind driven snow coming?????? kind of useless this early, except pissing off all the winter haters out there. unfortunately this could reek havoc on our trails. this will be the third time this year we had to do a major clearing of the trails. its alot of work. if we all pitch in with our local trail systems we can salvage the rest of our "season".

    aaah, I don't think this is a season changer yet, normal tires work just fine in snow, studs are for ice. ground not frozen & temps don't look cold next week. it'll be a little messy, but I think we will be okay and in good shape by next weekend.... at least on the seacoast.

    Think of it as an opportunity to build some log rides, Nate.
