Anyone know what those roads look like these days? We did get almost 7/8 of an inch of snow here last week... I'm just not sure what that translates to out there.

So... anyone want to join us?
Every thing is melted and clear here due to yesterday's rain.

Temp made it up to 30 today but it's already down to 15 ( at 1700) and on it's way to 0 this evening. Forecast is for a high of 14 tomorrow but it should start warming up on Wednesday.

I'm assuming since it didn't snow last night and there's no chance it will snow today that Stafford County schools are closed today...Let's go riding!

We got about 2" just a bit north of that area. The warm air and the bit of rain that moved in just before this last cold front melted just about all of it. The tricky part is that wherever it was still wet it's now solid ice. When we road that area last week it was pretty decent. I imagine it wont' be impassible by any means, watch out for ice slicks near corners... If it was on a Sunday I'd try to join you. I work Saturdays. Have fun!

Hope you guys find good roads! T and I went out for ride up the Susquehanna a couple of weekends ago and found it a bit too icy for our liking.



May your roads be less treacherous and more fun.
