Looks like Minnesota is getting one last big winter storm of the year this year. A couple days ago I was riding with my moon roof open. Today, it’s snowing.
Thankfully, it is looking like the metro area will be spared much of the snow, but down south they’re getting seriously hammered. It was truly bizarre today as I drove home from downtown. The snow simply stopped when I got into the north metro. Not just tapered off, but stopped.
This snow is good news and bad news for me. The good news is that my commute was pretty easy because I live on the north side. The bad news, is that my trail race in 15 days is going to be covered in 12 inches of snow. Even if we get back up into the 50’s for temps, that means we’re going to end up with a nice muddy mess.
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Spring trail races are muddy, that’s just the way that it goes. I pretty much embrace the mud anyway, but boy, one of these times it would be nice to not have my shoes completely coated in dirt!
