    Surprisingly, the Spout Run Skating Rink is mostly clear. I mean, you could hit some ice on it if you wanted to, but there's a clear path. Those high winds were good for something.

    The C&O towpath was in pretty good shape, surprisingly...at least from Fletcher's to Chain Bridge. Some frozen puddles, but nothing that was really a hazard or not easily avoidable.

    The crew working on the Lee Hwy redo in Rosslyn was placing jersey barriers on the trail just past the IOD heading to TR Island. I diverted across Key Bridge because they were swinging the things through the air when I went past just before noon. Afternoon commuters be forewarned.

    Just in case anyone was wondering: Trollheim and TR Bridge are clear! (There's some snow on the Trollheim, but plenty of space to ride).

    For obvious reasons, this was gone today. Puddles abound everywhere and I am hoping the wind this afternoon will dry things out, otherwise it will be an icy mess tomorrow with frozen puddles and newly frozen seepage.

    (and what is up with those sections of ground along the MVT north and south of the bridge. They seep water long, long after a rain, as if there are underground springs there ).

    It has been like that since like July last year. There are a couple of drains just above on the GWP. They might be malfunctioning or just overflowing.

    I was thinking something was leaking, but had not investigated to look for drains. This makes something worth telling NPS about (perhaps once they are open?).

    Between Georgetown and Fletcher's Cove, you really want to use the Canal Towpath rather than the CCT today (and until the National Park Service reopens). The downed tree is too big to go over. And going around involves traversing an area so choked with weeds that you can only go a few inches before having to untangle yourself, your bike, or both. Not to mention the mud and the driving rain.

    Happy Happy Joy Joy!
    Four Mile Run Trail -- creekside as you head east down the slope to pass under West Glebe -- the massive green generator/pumping equipment that took over the right lane is gone!
    Continuing further along, where the trail puts you on the sidewalk of the road bridge (over Long Branch stream) -- the generator/pumping equipment there is also gone.
    Does this give hope that the temporary black 'sewer piping' will be removed before too long...?
