First the weather: started the week with snow Sunday Evening into Monday Morning, Snow all day Tuesday, Rain Wednesday Night, unseasonably warm temperatures on the 24th and freezing temperatures on the 25th with clear skies and a beautiful Full Moon.
We were able to run the dogs on Monday (10 mile run both A & B Teams) and again Tuesday with a shorter 4.5 mile run in deeper snow trails.
The dogs ran well and are healthy and enthusiastic despite the lay-off's.
Wednesday Angel went to her new home ( see Dogs Available For Adoption Page) were she will be in a smaller recreational kennel that is just getting started in mushing.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday Evening were devoted to eating great suppers and overindulging in Holiday Food!
Now all the trails here are glare ice and unrunnable as well as dangerous to walk.
The forecast is for a few centimetres of snow tonight into Sunday Morning and 25/35 centimetres of snow on Tuesday and snow flurries for both Wednesday and Thursday.
Hopefully, the forecast is correct and we can get back to Winter type conditions and a regular training schedule.
The first two thirds of December has been a weather disaster for the training of Sled Dogs!
However, the dogs are all healthy with no injuries and ready to run.
Until the New Year!.......
