January 13, 2018 – Run Cancelled

January 13, 2018 – Run Cancelled

The forecast for overnight Friday into mid-day Saturday is not good for travel or running. I am going to break with tradition and recommend everyone sleep in this week. Roads will most likely not be plowed, making both driving and running dangerous.  I am guessing plows will be circulating while we would be running.       

I doubt the canal will be runnable either.

For those who insist on coming out – you are on your own. Be safe!
