Woke up to a light snow Monday morning but by mid morning it stopped. A mere two inches but the weather people were predicting a lot more. Early morning temps in single digits means I won't be riding to work this week unless it warms up a little bit. I thought Phil saw his shadow -- why are we still getting winterized?
I took my daughter out for a little snow shoe in the back 40. Katie took to it immediately, granted we were only walking in 2 inches of powder, on top of 3 feet of compressed snow/ice from January. Still there were a few soft spots that I broke into. We climbed up a ridge that I have never been to the top of before and it gave us a whole new perspective of the neighborhood - there could be serious mountain bike trails back here come next summer.
Now my riding buddy, who by the way turned 10 today, is also my snow shoeing buddy. I think next winter she is going to learn to XC Ski!
