Wednesday Mar 17 #


When you go to the grocery store and the highways have been closed for 3 1/2 days, it's easy to see what's not popular. For instance, in the bread aisle, if it's still there now, that item should probably be discontinued.

Lots of empty shelves. It's almost like the good old days, back early in the pandemic!


Continued whittling away at the snow and now have only one stretch of sidewalk left to cut through--though that's somewhat like the captain of the Titanic saying "except for the iceberg we just struck, we're doing okay." The sun was out for the last half of the day, which helped, but it wasn't warm enough for any vigorous melting action; tomorrow looks more promising.

I drove up top to check on things, hoping to be able to ski, but not really expecting much. The Happy Jack Highway was open and clear despite advisories down in Laramie that the road was closed. And the Tie City parking lot had been plowed. But there was zero sign that any attempt had been made at grooming, so (skate) skiing was out of the question. As was running, with no packed trails. So I came back home, and did Brooke's Mountain Bike Loop (aka the Jacobi Ridge Trail) as part of an hour long run.
