    I went on up to see the weather. It was really nice. Windy when I got there, then 5 minutes of hail, then pleasant, with on and off sprinkles. Beautiful and peaceful. Then the rain came and I stopped at the Iowa Hill general store and cafe.

      That's so cool, Gloria. I love that kind of devil may care attitude to weather & hiking. I just couldn't risk taking a group up there for safety reasons. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing!

    Well, Friends, we have a beautiful forecast tomorrow morning! I see sunshine and a high of 61 from my view. Prepare to hike in layers you can peel off. The lunch spot is fairly sunny and you may want to soak in some of that Vitamin D. I know I will!

    Friends, I'm sorry to have to to postpone this hike due to the weather. I'm going to reschedule it for Saturday, December 2nd. Your RSVP's will carry over. Please change your RSVP to "No" if the date conflicts with your schedule.

    Sorry to cancel. I was really looking forward to this hike. I hope to see everyone soon when we have a sunny Saturday.

  • Izabela

    Due to the rain I will have to sit this one out. I am looking forward to meeting you all next time.

    November 18

    • Athena

      I'm with you, Izabela. I'm going to postpone this. I hope you can make it next time.

    I'm watching the weather forecast and right now it shows, "Rain likely, mainly after 10am. Cloudy, with a high near 53. South wind around 14 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%."

    I won't cancel just for rain since I rather enjoy hiking in the rain and most of the trail there is paved with a lot of tree cover. However, I will cancel if it stays that windy. That wind looks not so fun.
