    Looks like the rain will hold off for today. Get out there and ride to pack the trails in. The sections that need packing are Ski Hill Flow and North Bridge Bypass.

    At least an hour of light rain last night. If the rain holds off today, things should be OK this evening, I would think.

    I don't know, it was a little soft yesterday evening. I would expect the rain to shut things down for today. Especially if it's as cloudy and humid as the forecast suggests.

    Wife ran out there this morning and said it was "hero dirt". She didn't make any tracks and nothing stuck to her shoes. I would probably stay away from point six but the rest sounds GTG.

    That always makes for a more intense workout. Gotta be careful of the bananas though.

    Sunday, June 4, 4:15 pm, heavy rain in WC area. We'll likely get about .5" out of this, maybe more.

    Monday, June 19: little sprinkle in the Walnut area. Probably just settled the dust.

    Radar shows "light" rain over WC. Did it get hit too hard this morning?

    Enough that we stopped riding. Should be fine tomorrow with no additional rain today.

    Well whatever there was is already soaked in--barely knocked the dust down. You'd hardly know it rained.

    Walnut still muddy and it is not good to go, give it at least 2 days.

    Since when? It was perfect yesterday. How much rain did it get between noon and Noon?

    The ground was so cracked with a reasonable amount of sunshine, it will not take two days and you will be significantly missing out.

    Join the ARR Trail Crew at WC at 6:30 tonight. We will be doing intensive soil sampling. No better way to get first hand information on what conditions are and if it will be rideable soon.
