We're getting 14.2+ inches of snow by 7am tomorrow (unless something wonky happens). And then flurries on Sunday.<br><br>
I have to scout trail Saturday for Sunday's 7 mile hash... <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"><br><br>
And... we mark the trail with flour... Help me pick... red, orange, or blue? What will show up best in the snow?

Yellow always seems to get noticed. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
I would pick orange.<br><br>
Let me tell you...I'm really excited about walking through this stuff the next few days. <img alt="roll_eyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif"><br><br>
But the letter carriers in Wisconsin had it a lot worse.<br><br>
And spring is coming soon.....right?

Holy crapinoly, the neverending winter goes on and on...inspired by Republicans who hate Al Gore.<br><br>
We are going to get about half as much snow as we get in a normal winter in the next 48 hours.<br><br>
...and it's school break here with tomorrow being the busiest day of the year at Toronto Airport<br><br>
OK we get the idea...there is no Global Warming...Call off the Effin' Snow Already!!!!

Wow, you guys are getting a bunch, eh? Up here in coastal CT, we're getting 2-4 inches of RAIN tonight...I can only imagine what that would be in a normal winter, when it should still be snowing...

That's the rumor. We are hashing by your house, Dan... any chance us haing a Beer Near in your driveway? It involves keeping a cooler on your porch for a few hours. We take care of our own trash and when trail is over we come and pick up the cooler and the trash bag. Let me know.

I don't wanna hear it. I'm planning on running 16 miles tomorrow. Looks like I could be relegated to the <gulp> treadmill. <img alt="sad5.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad5.gif"> I think I'll bring a cyanide pill just in case it gets to be too much to take.

Consider this mental training. If you can gut out 16 miles on the treadmill of death and destruction, just imagine the mental fortitude you'll have at mile 20 of your next marathon.<br><br>
Or, you know, you're in like Cleveland where they can deal with 10" of snow. Just wait until tomorrow afternoon/evening. They'll have it all straightened out.

I wonder if I brought a little cooler with a couple of beers whether the gym folk would allow it? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> They know me well there and might get a kick out of someone running 16 miles on one of their treadmills while drinking beer.<br><br>
Plus I'm falling apart and could use the pain-numbing power of alcohol.<br><br>
They do plow and salt my favorite running trail.

All long runs can be improved with painkillers and a little alcohol (I'm kidding folks). I could never do 16 miles on a treadmill. NFW!
