Yeah, I stand corrected. Apparently the Sat. rain wasn't as bad as I thought, and the drenching from Thursday and the more on Friday had mostly dried up.

The heat sucks, but it actually does help dry things up more quickly, although maybe not in this humidity.

Jon - not sure if you saw my Element at Hunter's Sunday - but I went there with a freind after 2pm with the sole goal of avoiding all the traditionally wet areas and ready to bail if conditions were bad.

I have to say - Hunter's wasn't in that bad of shape. I walked the traditional boggy areas - but the majority of the orange (FLT) and upper blue trails were in very good shape (except for that one HUGE mud bog) that we walked around. "Skyridge" was totally fine - as it always is.

As you know - you can get 10 miles in there if you know the spots to avoid.

Hey - if you want me to do the Map cover... I can...

Jon, you could have stopped at my house if you had your canoe. I had right around 2 feet of water in the street (or was 1/4 of the way up my front lawn) because it rained so hard the two storm drains couldn't clear it fast enough. I made the same assumption about EA but talked to someone who was at a party on Big Tree and said they just had a breif rain shower.

I'll try to do some "research" tonight at Hunters. According to Justin's post, the rain Sat. wasn't too hard (I was up in Amherst in that big early evening storm reported in the newspaper. Driving home afterward, the roads were wet all the way back to EA so I assumed it had rained there as well, though not as hard).

Is that a flower caught in your pedal, or are you just happy to see me?

Yup....road bike for the past 2 weeks :cry:

Is there a group ride this week? (or is everyone serving penance for for riding trails when they shouldn't have? :shock: :wink: )

I haven't been out since last wednesday when I went for a walk. The trails where reasonably wet then and I know there was rain Thursday - Saturday, so I can only imagine what the conditions have been like. I for one have been road biking and sparing the trails. My yard is still reasonably wet, so I woud guess the trails are not dry (how wet I have no idea?) Really, I have no idea what the current conditions are and will be out of town for Wednesdays ride. I just hope that things dry out by the time I get back next week. Good luck finding dry riding this week :(

Thanks Boogenman that's what we thought when we cancelled the regular ride last night.

SB is a mess, I was up there tonight(wed) there are huge mud pits all over the trail. I saw a group of 7 or 8 guys riding, did not reconize any of them.
The trails will not be good for at least 2 dry days. It rained here for a good hour last night, I would guess it is close to 1" by the way the creeks were flowing this morning
