Hyland Skate Skiing 7:43 AM; Hyland Park Reserve
-7.4 °C; Cloudy Sent an email to Karl yesterday about a possible ski today. He called me about the same, before seeing my message. Headed to Hyland because Elm Creek was closed this AM. As usual, super fast. Did 2 laps no-pole to warm up, 1 lap no-pole cool-down and a couple laps of double-poling, still an average of 17 km/h. It's just there are no natural snow conditions that fast. but I'm not complaining, it's great to be skiing when the landscape around is all brown.

Energy Park Short 2:07 PM; Hamline Midway/Frogtown
-1.6 °C; Clear They said something about above freezing temps for today, it never got quite above 0 °C on my rooftop weather station. But the sun was nice and mild and there was little wind. Lynn and I split the dogs, she taking Mellie for a walk through campus and I taking Roux on the daily off leash parcours. On the way across the Hamline pedestrian bridge, we encountered a school class of 6th or 7th graders. Lots of nice compliments for Roux. He also got some attention from a woman walking by, First, he was more into some nearby squirrels until he turned to her and gave her a dose of exuberant Roux attention.
