Winter Roads Make Winter Trails All That Much Better
It began snowing about October 30, and I've been able to get in at least twice a week workouts shoveling new snow. I don't remember so much snow so often. The result is that our street is getting narrower. Some of us have been able to carve out parking spots, but most of the street space is now three to four foot high berm - five or six feet wide. People are parking creatively.
After ten days of film festival, I was ready to for bit of a walk, so I took some books back to the UAA library. Here's the biketrail/sidewalk cut out of the snow.
The snow plow guys must be exhausted and frustrated. They've done a pretty good job getting our street cleared, but not picking up the snow. And now the streets are awful.
But walking the bike trails on campus is going off into a winter wonderland.
