Got the walks cleared and the cars cleaned from the 20″ of snow that fell.
Felt the ski legs tugging at me.
What to do? The local roads were still in lousy shape and the winds were gusting up to 30 mph.
Susan and I drove a full half mile to Hempstead Lake State Park. Well, not actually to the park, since the road and parking lot was not cleared. We parked on the street and walked over the foot bridge.
The good news was that a skier had been their earlier in the day and left tracks. Also, no hikers had walked in those tracks.
The bad news was that the wind had blown over almost half those tracks so we had to re track in deep snow.
We finally managed a short one hour ski with a lot of taking turns tracking.
It was good to get out, however.
We have tomorrow and Wednesday to try again. Hopefully more people will be out skiing so we can all do more actual skiing.
