I thought for a second that someone had blacked out the centerline on the bridge over 128, but it's only the shadow of the fence rail.
Yesterday: 8 miles. This year: 33.7 miles.
I skated west from Lexington Center to Bedford Depot Park today, relying on Yury's report that the trail was clear enough for all activities. That's nearly so, undercut only by some sand and gravel at Bedford Street, followed by rotting ice across the path just west of there.
Today: 8 miles. This year: 15.7 miles.
I skated west from Hurd Field into Lexington yesterday and found the trail much clearer than I expected. There's some gravel at Fottler Avenue and some ice in the shadow of Maple Street. I turned back at the private driveway between Seasons Four and Woburn Street, where there was only a narrow strip of wet pavement surrounded by melting ice.
Arlington's all clear.
Yesterday: 5 miles.
