Icy as it was this morning, I expect it'll be mostly wet this afternoon.

I took a few pictures while I was busy not posting last year.
There's a modern concrete tie at the top of the ramp behind Sunrise Assisted Living in Arlington Heights. I can only imagine it was set aside during track maintenance and left behind when the rails were removed.
There's a cluster of B&M signs and equipment at Mystic Street in Arlington Center.
A young girl walked by with her father as I was photographing these stops on a siding near Water Street. She told me there used to be a railroad here. She stage-whispered to her father as they walked away, "He didn't know that."
The Mill Brook runs in a culvert under Arlington High School's playing fields and emerges just below Mill Street.
I met Big Bird walking on the Somerville Community Path a couple of blocks from Davis Square.
The picturesque atmosphere wasn't fog, but dust stirred by maintenance at Hurd Field.
Atop the stairs behind Trader Joe's in Arlington Heights.
Betty Boop was one of four classic cartoon characters posted along the trail west of Lexington Center last summer.
Not skating or running leaves time to look at smaller details along the way.

All the links on the right here are tested and working. I can't find Clear The Trail anywhere and I don't know what's happened to winter trail-clearing in Arlington. Friends of Lexington Bikeways look active on their main site, so I'm linking to that instead of their four-years-stale blog. I updated the links for Walking in Arlington and the Skate FAQ. The latter has some timeless content about learning, technique, and skills, which is fortunate because their front page describes the 2006 Disney Skate Expo/Marathon as "coming up". Dilatory as I've been lately, I'm timelier than that.
