Over the weekend we were blessed with a spell of nice weather. Though the wind was still blowing at around 30 MPH, I took my chances and headed off for the long route along the North Beach Rd. Within a few miles I was stuck in the middle of our first snow storm of the season. I spent the entire upwind slog back to the barracks dreaming about the dry sauna in the gym.
