|The Ti Mukluk on the way home.|
This stuff looks to have some staying power. It has been snowing all day, and we're supposed to end up with about ten inches of it. You'd think I'd be really happy about that, since I have a fat bike and all.
Well, except that this is possibly the worst type of snow to try to ride on. Sugary, granulated, icy pellet snow that shifts and moves all over the place. It makes getting a purchase on it really hard to do. Think "fine sand" and you will get the idea.
This stuff is drifting up in waves, just like sand does, already today. I don't care how much we get, because this stuff doesn't pack down, and unless we get some warm Sun on it to crust it up, it will end up being a nuisance more than it will be fun. I suspect that's about what it will end up becoming by the time it quits later tonight, a big pile of shifting, sandy, granulated nuisance snow.
Yeah, call me "Debbie Downer" if you must, but I have a very low opinion of this quality of white stuff we're getting. It's that dang "sugar snow" again, and it ain't sweet either.
