Here's a calculator to sort out what's what.

Got it in one, Chad. NWS prediction is now five to ten inches between now and Saturday. Even at the low end it would be nasty getting there, much less dealing with a trail up here, any trail.

The storm might miss us, it's happened before, but I'm not holding my breath. Will have a much better idea by tomorrow afternoon.

Just to let you all know, the snow is picking up and getting worse. An easy drive home for me turned into a slick icy highway ride.

China Wall Postponed...

Possibly till April or May with way it's snowing up here. Haven't had a snow like this around here in quite a while. I won't complain about the snow, not with wild fires having become a seasonal event, but I am disappointed. I was really looking forward to this run. Oh, well...

Sorry Justin, even Manchester Creek would be impassable at this point. I will be out there checking on things and as soon as it's possible we'll be out there. Use the time to get those miles on your jeep
