No snow here, just some rain overnight, about 40 and breezy. Had about 85 starters. Sorry to miss you guys.

Rain overnight but sunny now. Very windy though.

Still snowing (lightly) here at 12:45p. Supposed to continue through the evening. Looks like today's exercise will be snow removal.

We had snow at Ratlum this morning, then didn't see any until I turned back on Ratlum Rd on my way home from the Traverse.

I recall driving to some O meet well south (MD or Quantico), departing in heavy snow and B-to-B traffic on I 93. I had more second thoughts than I cared to count, one even to exit 93, 10 mi down the road...turning back passed my mind. I persevered, snow eventually became rain and the rest was history.

Bottom line, take your choice: "you never know", "nothing ventured, nothing gained", "weary traveler, long road", "been there, done that" :-).

Bob, we would have had to pass over the snowy Berkshires before reaching the relative calm of the Connecticut valley. Snow generally doesn't deter us but conditions just weren't right today.

We're sad we missed the event.

I'm probably more prone toward the last two of the above these days. Maybe it's just temporary. Spring helps.

Sorry you two had to miss this. I have extra shirts I can bring to Ratlum if you'd like.

Don't really need another t-shirt - and didn't put in the pain to earn one. :-) But if they're just going to get stored away for a few years and then thrown away, I'll take one (Janet too) - medium for both of us if that's still an option.

I know you don't need another t-shirt :-) But, yeah, with about 8 extra shirts, they will just get stored and then donated to charity (not thrown away!). Mediums are what I have left.
