IMG-20130201-00330I couldn’t believe my eyes this morning when I saw the damage last nights wind caused!  We weathered out this system so nicely until yesterday evening.  We still had most of the snow that fell the night before and it was supposed to get cold so it seemed like everything was going to be great!  However it did not cool down….in fact in got warmer.  Usually the forecast is reasonably accurate here but not last night.  The thing that worries me the most is that the brooks are running.  They are still well frozen but a torrent running over the top of the ice!  This means the snow is melting higher up which is not good.  I am heading in at 10 o’clock with a group from the chalets for a ride.  I will be emailing pictures and a description for this blog out to the office before noon.

UPDATE FROM THE TRAILS - 11:00am: “Conditions right now are poor.  For the most part are well covered but there are spots you have to go around.  If it gets cold and we get some snow things will improve a lot.  Right now though….not good.”
