March Road Conditions
We have had mixed weather conditions. Last week lots of sun and temps in the 50's and then it rained for days with highs in the 40's. The creeks are all full with lots of white water. Great for rafting. Starting tomorrow (Tuesday) the highs will be back in the 50's for most of the week. Yeah!!!
Most of the snow has melted. The road from Leetonia to Cedar Run is drivable without chains or 4 wheel drive. A couple spots have packed snow but there are tire ruts that go down to the dirt. One of those spots is at the curve by the waterfall at Red Rock. Watch out for the mud in spots. Be careful on the road between the bridge at Mine Hole and the Bobcat camp. As you head toward Mine Hole the road breaks away on the right.
The unploughed roads in the state forest are down to the dirt in spots. There is still packed snow in parts but I think most of it will be gone by the weekend. I haven't traveled on any of them but I could see some of the roads when I drove by while on Leetonia Road. There are vehicle tracks on them so they might be drivable.
The pictures are Pine Creek at Blackwell. It is so serene and quiet right now. Not a soul was around.
Our DSL is down so we have dial-up temporarily which is so slow and unpredictable. (UGH!) I've got dumped several times. I can't believe I'm going to get this to post. It goes to show how spoiled we get when technology improves. When dial-up first came out every one was so amazed. Now it seems like the dark ages.
Paula is in San Diego remodeling her son's bathroom. She might be back on the 24th but she says it doesn't look to promising. Hopefully she'll be back by the end of March. The boys and I are hanging in there. They will be happy when the sun comes out again so we can go for a walk.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone that comes up in the Spring. We hope you all had a good winter. I know everyone is looking forward to nice weather.
