Super deep snow at Tobyhanna. It's a meter deep and 2-8cm more fall every day. We're going to have deep snow well into March.
I am frustrated that it will take so long to possibly be vaccinated. Right now it looks like I'll be eligible in July, and then when I'll actually be able to get vaccinated is another issue completely.
But I am so happy to see the older members of our orienteering community be protected. Very grateful to know they're safe from this virus.
This winter is turning out to be the best winter for skiing I've ever remembered in PA and one of the worst for orienteering. Orienteering with some snow is fun, but it's far too deep now to do anything worthwhile. And it looks like we're going to get 1-6 inches of snow every day for at least the next ten days.
So might as well get as fit as possible skiing and running so I'm ready to really push the envelope when orienteering is possible again.
The thing is though that orienteering can't really exist in a vacuum. For example, I can run a fast 5k and we all know what that time means more or less. But if I have an excellent performance in a middle distance without competitors, does that hold much meaning? You could always say that you'd have to see what others can do.
This makes it difficult for me to set goals to do on my own during this pandemic. What is an outstanding performance in orienteering without competitors?

More snow! Wanted to do 20/40s but there was too much snow to really pick up the pace. So just an easy run.
