Rain Storms

*** Update 2 ***
Volunteer Bill Fischer has just checked in and reported that he's waiting for the riders at the top of Salem Mountain -- he should be seeing them shortly.

*** Update 1 ***
As of 6PM, several riders were on the Salem Mountain Rd climb... they'll probably be arriving in Carbondale within a half hour or so.

*** Original Post ***
Late in the afternoon, the rain storms finally caught up with riders near Hawley, just past Lake Wallenpaupack.  Based on the impressive radar imagery, it looks like it was a pretty good soaking.  It appears that the rain will be dissipating soon, after one more band goes by.

Temperatures have dropped into the 60F's, which will probably be a welcome relief with the climb up Salem Mountain Road looming ahead.  This climb takes the riders to the highest point on the course, just before the Carbondale controle.  Greg and Andrea and perhaps a few others, appear to have stopped at the mini-mart just before this tough climb, probably to dry out and regroup.


  1. I'm enjoying these updates. Thanks for posting.

  2. Nigel, Glad to know that I at least have an audience of one! Thanks for following along.
