I would be remiss if I failed to note that the Day of Doom is only two days away, and I yet without a Plan Exquisite with which to cope!


Roads cleared off enough (major streets almost totally free of snow, with only some wet spots, side streets more than 90% free of snow w/ lots more wet areas) to allow for biking in comfortable conditions, so biking it was! I biked around all the best parts of town, taking in all the sights that draw throngs of people from western Nebraska, northern Colorado, and even Bosnia & Herzegovina.

But after a while of time spent on the asphalt, a certain longing for snow inevitably surfaces, and for that reason and no other I headed up for some snowy trail running higher up, where I even witnessed several skiers whipping their way around Upper UW. There were a few small patches of bare ground where the trail I was on veered out onto a south facing slope, and some nearly slushy places, but for the most part the snow was dry enough, and deep where it was not already compacted by foot and bike traffic.
