First ride of the season!

After a long hiatus, it's time to update the blog. Went on our first ride of 2012 today and first ride since November 15. It was a glorious day, 56 degrees, sunny, the roads clear of ice and snow.
The lakes are still frozen and there's still lots of snow on the sides of the roads from the storm that dumped over a foot at the end of February. The snow was so wet and heavy that some of the branches broke on this tree, including the one that is hanging over the van.
We got in a good week of skiing this past week, so now that warmer weather is here and the snow is soft and melting, I'm ready to hang up the skis and switch to the bike.

Temperatures are forecast to be in the 60s this coming week (maybe even up to 70) so the snow on the x-c ski trails will soon be melting fast. More later...
