|Mushrooms. Growing in my yard. It might be a touch moist...|
The sun came out just after we (the Ramblers) rolled off on our annual MoFruitab trip, melting almost all the snow to open up trails and roads for two wheeled fun. And after a brief weather respite, we ended up getting a bunch more precipitation in the form of rain. A lot of it. To the point where I'm wondering if I need to switch sports to something that involves water.

All of this leads me to the conundrum of having dry trails to ride yet having the trails be in excellent condition. Before we got all this snow and then rain, the trails on our urban singletrack at HLMP were so dry that there were sections of basically moon dust. That coupled with the fact that the fire danger was astronomically high was leading to the fact our riding season might not have been very good at all.
So Mother Nature, if you're reading this blog and I know you do, if you can spread out the precipitation a little bit so we can ride the trails that would be nice. If you can't I understand, I would love to be able to ride, but we need the moisture...
