Fierce Winds, Full Moon, for UP 200 Takeoff
The wind is howling like a banshee, gusting , the windchimes are clanging, the dogs are very quiet. We watched the UP 200 takeoff, trails will be mixed, punchy, icy, temp is plus twenty
but windchills (some winds up to 72mph!) will be lower. The full moon is like a very large lantern in the sky, beautiful for the mushers.
Took a few photos as dogs and I took a pre bedtime walk. Our driveway is lethally icy, no traction whatsoever. Our trails are icy but passable. Our race for next weekend has been
canceled, officially... and Sunday we are expecting 8 inches of snow, go figure!
