More Snow?

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!
