Clearing the trail

An article in Sunday's Globe (On winter’s path, beginning to see their way clear) surprised me -- I hadn't thought the trail was clear enough for skating, only for walkers and adventurous cyclists. But yesterday brought warm rain and now the trail is wide open for anyone who doesn't mind the chilly breeze.

What's it like?

Looking up and down the trail from Bow Street in Lexington today, I saw a surprising amount of pavement. Plenty of snow and ice, too. With a chance of snow forecast for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, I don't expect to see much pavement on the trail for a while.

This week: 0 miles. This year: 0 miles.
