|Oooo! Look! There's some!|
Oh sure- It was all white in the morning, but with temperatures hovering in the mid 30's all afternoon, the snow was doomed. It was misty and snowed off and on all afternoon, but the end result was that it got slippery, muddy, and soggy, and very little white stuff was to be found out there today.
That didn't mean that I didn't get out in the Green Belt and do some riding. I did, and it was the typical good time. Slow and steady, that was the order of the day. I was gone maybe a couple of hours, but it was good.
With the deer season going on, it seems that the deer are finding safe ground inside of the City limits. I saw more deer today in the Green Belt than I've seen in a long time. Other than that, I saw a man and his dog walking, but that was it. The trails were deserted for the most part. No wonder too, it was not the greatest outside today.
While that was fun, I would rather that the lake be full and that we would not be in such dire straits in terms of water levels around here.
The only other thing of note was that my Magura brake was grinding, chinging, and making all sorts of racket yesterday. I'll have to see if I can align the caliper better. The front brake is the culprit. The rear is dead quiet. Recently I tracked down a howl with the front brake. A loose pad retainer screw was the cause.
So, no snow for me! But it is all good. At least I can still ride, and the trails were in good shape out there. I'll be glad when it does snow enough to warrant a fat bike, but I do not need snow to justify riding my fat bike anytime.
