Yes, the weekend brought some snow to Deadwood – but I’m hoping it’ll be the last! There are just too many great things happening in the area to let a little snow disrupt any plans! If you happened to be driving around Deadwood in the snow-rain mixture on Sunday morning, you may have seen me as I took the time before the major snowfall of the day to get a bike ride in. Probably not the best idea I thought to myself, but not until I made it DOWN the hill from my house to the Mickelson Trail. The going down part is always the easiest, but halfway down, I realized the mistake I could be making. Snow was coming down harder, and the slush on the road was a real headache. Not only was it slippery as all get out, it was also splasing from tires and onto my face as I trekked down the trail. Then, after reaching the trail, the snow had accumulated some 4 inches, and it was heavy stuff, so it was like biking through sand. I made a detour and took the sidewalk route, and finally made it to Main Street — soaking wet, mud from head to toe, and awfully tired from the ride down…
Then, I had to get back home… but that’s another story all together.
But, hey, it’s sunny today and the weather will shape up in no time. Trust me!
Until next week,
Lee
