    I didn't see anyone. Waited until 640 then went up and did bobsled and some random lower trails. Part of lower Griffin. Forgot which trail we usually take. Ended up at McNair so it's all good

    Well the good news is that it seems to have stopped pouring and there is only a light rain here on the North Shore. The bad news is something has come up and I can't make it out to lead the ride. I'll leave it up for people who still want to go. Sorry for the last minute notice!
