‘The Weather Report’ is a look at the forecast in our daily lives.
There are a lot of different perspectives on the conditions - if you play winter sports or if you can’t wait for spring to play sports.
The warmer temps and some rain will really deplete the pact trails for snowmobilers and skiers. Overall the winter has been mild while providing some decent time frames for riding and getting out in the snow.
Other things we’re all talking about is wearing short sleeves - a little far away, but we can dream. Also wearing normal shoes and not having to pull on boots, a hat and gloves everyday.
The pandemic has made things more difficult. We’re all trying to stay healthy and keep our families healthy. Avoiding the flu is also a priority. You probably find yourself washing your hands and sanitizing a lot. Keep doing it. It’s a big part of staying healthy this year.
Keep your guard up when crossing icy parking lots and so forth. The melt and freeze we’ll see through March will leave some surprisingly slick areas.
