I was just looking at NOAA's radar, and it looks like the weather that we are suppose to get today and tomorrow is going to miss us. Hee Haw! I'm predicting a decent weekend. I may get to ride my MC tomorrow, or even play some golf! Tom, I may stop in tomorrow to check out your new siding. It looks like if I stay south of Burlington, I should stay dry.

Let me know if you go out Joe. I might meet you along the way. One last roll on the bike might be fun.

Joe, NOAA is predicting likely rain tomorrow for Rutland but the radar loop looks like the high pressure is holding the rain off to the west. Could go either way.

I'll be here tomorrow but give me a rough idea of when you'll stop by so I'm not out for a bike ride in the park.

Bob, sounds good.....but I try not to ride in the rain..... so we'll see. I ride until Thanksgiving, so there's plenty of time left. I actually love riding just after the leaves fall, you can see into the woods again.

I'm sure glad we didn't have this weather last weekend at GRR. Enjoying a sunny Sunday morning while leisurely sipping coffee and getting gear together is much nicer than hurriedly packing up gear in wet snow. [wink]

Power back on after 12 or 14 hours out. GMP sucks!

We rarely lose power here in Rutland and when we do it's repaired quickly. City living has its advantages. [smile]

We lost power for 5 minutes early this morning. No snow on the ground, and it's now sunny albeit a tad windy.

Bob you need wind/solar generation.

Yea I know, when you live out on the fringe you get that kind of service. We were sitting around playing cards and all of the sudden it went Black. I had to think were are my lights with batteries. Search around with a lighter (knew where that was) to find a light. It snowed all night, in the morning I went up the gap to get service on my phone. My house signal needs AC power to run my Cell tower (Fuck you Verizon). GMP's outage reporting system didn't know about an outage at 8:45am close to 12 hours after it happened. So much for smart meters and a concerned corporation. We were warm and could still take a shower, cook food and play guitar. GMP cant wreck everything. Cause of power outage of course a tree which fell on a line or several. IT took about 16 hours for the corporation to become aware and send an overtime (and bonus paid) crew out to find the offending tree and remove it.  I guess there were only 2 or 300 people without power, probable will not make the news.

I skinned up Broadway this morning that had about 5 inches of snow and when I got up to Gardiner's Lane there was about 9 inches. It was full on winter up at Bolton. I got some good turns in. I even did a glade run. There was so much snow that all the streams were filled in-no stream crossings. I only saw one other person. We looked at each other and I said; "where is everybody"? It's a good start to the season. What's the difference between a snowboard and an onion? No one cries when you slice a snowboard in half.

No water in the streams is probably why you had no crossings to deal with. Its been really dry.

Man today was nice! I took a ride up on Pine Hill today and the oak trees are in their prime this time of year. Especially against a backdrop of bare trees. I love the progression from late summer to early winter.

Rasta meeting Thursday 6-9 in Rochester. I have not been to one these before. Bumped Shane and Julie to see if there is any interest.

I usually attend but won't be able to go this year. You should definitely go. Good potluck food, good crowd, usually some great film footage, and always interesting forum topics. Plus the raffle. The odds are pretty good to win some nice stuff.
