    Grand Ridge Wind

    Was it windy there today?
    If you find any blowdowns please post location and picture or description so I can pass it on to the county. Is it all on the ground or hung up in some branches?
    There's a big difference between ripping and skidding. Those who skid don't know how to ride.

    It was blowing a good 20-30 MPH, maybe more with the gusts on Christmas. Torrential downpour for several hours too. I haven't been out there yet, I would imagine there might be some blowdowns.

    Did most of the south side below the estates on Monday and things were clear. Didn't go up top. But that was before the wind yesterday.

    There were two close together on the decent to the high point trail head past the Coal Mine trail cut off in between the 2nd and third switchback. The other was north of Grand Ridge drive just after the start of the descent to the first little bridge.
