In only 12 hours after my Ramble forecast post last night, the chance of rain for Friday has gone up from 30% to 70%. That means a high probability of increased wetness on roads already wet with melting ice, and deteriorating conditions on significant portions of our gravel roads route options. It also means that I am considering a back-up route plan that involves more paved roads and less (or no) gravel.
I’m still planning to ride on Saturday, but apparently a healthy dose of flexibility will be required.
What about the driveway and environs? Sign me “Mr Flexible.”
As of Thursday night, the driveway is still almost entirely covered, but it is much softer now than last night. With above freezing temps and rain I expect most to be gone by Saturday morning.
You go Mr. Pondero wish I could join y’all.
