    I would much rather snow than rain. I was thinking of heading north instead of south, It is easier to stay warm than it is to stay dry.

    Was supposed to do Hoyt Rd NY to Route 4 CT, reconsidering it now :-/
    up over the hills, theres nothing to fear
    theres a pub across the way with whisky and beer
    its a lengthy journey on the way up to the top
    but it ain't so bad if you have a great big bottle o'scotch

    It's 32 in Hanover as I write this (it's almost eleven) and it'll be colder higher up. Looks like cold and cloudy on Saturday with probable rain on Sunday. Good luck to anyone going up in the high country.
