    Anybody brave the storm today and ride?

    Anybody get outside and give it a shot? I watched football and went to the gym.

    No storm here. Sunny morning. Light snow late afternoon. Did a short road spin.

    The beauty of the dry side. We have had rain almost every day since mid October

    I hit Grand Ridge at about 2pm. Out and back up to Duthie. Took a bit longer that I was thinking, due to lots and lots of culverts that needed to be opened up. It was dark, and started snowing big fat flakes about halfway back. Thankfully I had just bought a new light (NR Lumina 650--which was awesome). It would have been pretty magical, if I wasn't so cold (shorts and regular gloves FTL). I had recently ridden in Phoenix, and had taken off my cut tube water blocker thing on my fork, which meant I was totally drenched most of the ride. Took me nearly an hour to feel my toes again.

    Sure beats sitting on the cough though.

    Went over to Leavenworth to pick up freshly mounted skis and take the kid out on the groomed stuff. Got stuck waiting for the skis to be done (a long story) a lot longer in town than we'd wanted to and decided it was looking bad enough that we'd skip going back over Blewett and went through Wenatchee-Quincy/AL area-I90 via Vantage back home.

    tl;dr version: it's snowing hard clear out to the basin and you do NOT want to be driving in it tonight. Pass is closed both directions, saw a vid of the Sehaptin outfitters guys skiing down the main drag in Cle Elum which looked like the best plan for the evening by far.

    Rode Tokul West on Sat and had snow. when we got back to the lot by Fall City grill it was windy and raining HARD, plus very cold.

    Trails out there are in great shape. GS could use some drainage work.

    Rode Tokul East this morning at 8am. First car in the lot and it was dry. There was dusting of snow on Flowtron, but it rode pretty nice. It started raining hard when we got back to the car around 11am but the entire parking area was full.

    Next time you ride Flowtron it'll be flowier. Great building weather today, stayed fairly dry until we bailed at 2:00. Ground was super duper extra saturated.

    I rode Saturday am, came in just as the rain started. Sunday I conducted a walking tour of PVCA for the Big Finn Trails Committee; very illuminating for the KC Parks staff member and the non-riding committee members who attended (illuminating for me too: never walked Cedar Run before!). Got wet, but got done before it started to really dump.

    I ran stairs on Queen Anne. Going to wait till we have a few dry days before riding again.
    There's a big difference between ripping and skidding. Those who skid don't know how to ride.

    I rode Duthie yesterday and moved branches and trees where I could off of the XC trails. There was only one blocking tree ~12:00 on any of the XC trails, and that was about halfway through Movin' On on an easy option bypass of the first large humpy boardwalk. I saw someone with a chainsaw in the easy walkup area and mentioned that tree to him that wasn't Tyler, so that must have been Bryan?

    PVCA was generally ok, but on foot we didn't see most of it. I took the group out Mainline, up Two Trees, down Cedar Run, back in via Lloyd and Mainline. lots of small puddles, only really big one was at the bottom of Cedar Run and Southern Traverse. I hear the upper part of Red Alder still has big puddles, but that's the area they're working on right now.

    We rode Duthie last night from 8pm to 9:30pm, hit nearly every trail and there was zero blow down blocking any trails. We move a few branches, but nothing major was blocking that we saw. Either the winds havent hit the area too hard, or people have been doing a great job keeping the trails clear!
