Re: [RC] Spring fever in January - jen

I hear ya' Dyane.  I too am in "far, far northern Ca and I'm starting to worry about conditioning.  I was starting to get a good base on my new gelding, but with no riding since the first of Dec.  I'm sure it's all going away.  Let's hope for a break soon.

From far far northern California: more rain and fog than I have ever seen, one or the other or both since Thanksgiving!  Last night rained all night, this morning woke to snow.  Oh, man, what a winter.

It is so ironic.....we've bogged in mud and Texas and Oklahoma are burning up.  If only the weather could be spread around a little more evenly.  It was supposed to rain here by yesterday evening, but the storm just sat off of NW California and dumped 4" of rain on them in 24 hours.  It's down her now, but not heavy yet.....just soggy and so depressing.

I hear you - and I have friends in Texas that are desperately needing rain!  We're way behind here on snow, had two very dry months in Nov. and Dec. and the snowpack is dwindling.  Bad news for next year's water supply!

And here on the CA coast, it's raining.....AGAIN.  Trails are a mess, and those that aren't blocked by downed trees are too slippery and muddy to ride.

Hey everybody,
 
It's a sunshiny and calm day here, perfect for riding.  It's a strange winter so far...very dry, we sure could use some snow.
 
As a certified newbie, I'm looking forward to going to my first endurance ride, so please be assured I'm one of the many (I'm sure most) newbies who appreciate all the advice, friendliness, and years of experience on this list.  Rest assured I won't be trying to break any speed records, well, maybe I will, for slowest speed on record for a first 50... and believe me, I can do it!

Thanks, and Happy New Year to all -
