    Most of it, yes. The trail is so short, and easy to remember so it was no problem.

    Thursday: Sunshine. Highs in the low 80s and lows in the low 50s.

    Hopefully it starts snowing in Tahoe more soon. I want to go snowboarding.

    Cool pics. I've never ridden in snow, how is it?

    Ehh, actually I have, but only through drifts for like 30 feet.

    It is about 10 degrees here now.

    (that is Celsius, no idea what it is in that goofy Fahrenheit scale)

    Cannot wait for temperatures to drop below freezing. That should dry out the conditions.

    Sometimes. When the snow is hard, then it can be very good grip if you choose the right tyres. Maxxis tyres are the worst on snow. Nokian Gazzaloddi's are the best I've tried.

    But If the snow is a little wet, and is still loose, then it can be very slippery. Wet snow one day can be ice the next day.

    Maybe the hurricane will wash it off...

    I think a little snow and frost is nicer than hurricanes.

    ACDC knows what I'm taking about. It's getting brisk over here. Last Diablo weekend should be a bit nipply.

    Snow is super fun to ride on, depending on the snow type. It's pretty amazing how grippy in can be.
