It is -22 degrees Celsius here in Bathurst this morning. With an extremely cold and dangerous day yesterday, it is understandable that there was virtually no traffic yesterday on the trails. It is for this reason that Ron has decided for the second night in the row that there would be no grooming. However, he will have the#1 out this morning and possibly the #2 out this afternoon if we can get it started. The #3 is still down until at least Tuesday or Wednesday.
If anyone is venturing out today, the warning is watch out for drifting, as we've been hampered by severe winds. So in this case slow down and as most of us have encountered, that unseen drift that crosses the trail. I will keep you updated if there is any grooming going to take place today.
Safety message: With these frigid temperatures as low as they are will compound the situation if you break down or have an accident. Here are a couple of key points that you should observe: #1 slow down and drive safe. #2 don't ride alone. #3 tell your loved ones where you are going to be riding and when you're expected to be back.
