East Pepperell Center on Monday - Bedford on Wednesday - TBD on Friday

Dear AdventuRiders,

I LOVE my "job", except for the deciding when to GO and when to STOP.

Tomorrow falls into the category "um, maybeeeee...".

During my reconnaissance run today it occurred to me that while the calendar says "Spring", the reality is that it was 19 degrees this morning, the ponds are still frozen, the roads have pot-chasms, frost heaves, and general awfulness.

The weather forecast for tomorrow is not very encouraging either with wind chills below freezing in the morning and rain possible by noon :-(

Anyhow, now that I've bummed you out ...
