W&OD Trail Conditions redux

They plowed the W&OD Trail! Woo-hoo! It's now rideable with a road bike, without studded tires, at least until the next time it snows. Great job by the park maintenance crews, and thanks to whoever made the decision to finally do this.

And all the fallen trees I saw on Wednesday were gone by Thursday. (Well, not quite gone — you can see what's left of them on the sides of the trail — but they're not blocking the trail.)

Be careful out there, though — there will be black ice in the mornings as the melted snow from the sides of the trail refreezes, and there are still some large low-hanging branches.
