Punxsutawney Phil is on the critical list.......

..........and we can look forward to another 5 months of winter.

It comes as small comfort to know that the last time it snowed this heavily and early in Pennsylvania it was way back in 1979. We spent the day just about staying upright but with  constant waves of spraying slush coming at us from oncoming vehicles. We managed 40 miles and were pleased to get through it all in one piece. We remain on schedule for the NYC Marathon on 6 November but this was a very tough day.
262 miles remain to that dip in the Atlantic.


We passed  Brady and Ian fresh from a morning's garden work near (yes really) Snowshoe, PA.



Later in the day we passed a bar owned by Brenda who, taking pity on our bedraggled state, gave us both new gloves, free food, access to a wonderful fire and great company. THANK YOU!!

  2. The weather reports don't look very helpful for your final run in - we will keep our fingers crossed that the snow melts overnight (some hope I know)
    Keep going both of you - nearly there.
