morning park laps at Mt. Brighton today, now back in the home office. The sun came out to play a little bit, which was nice, because the light was impossibly flat when I got there at 10am. Jump line is OK but needs some work I honestly don't know what they will do to fix it. None of the "big" jumps are too big for me, which means they aren't really that big (maybe 15 footers). But the approach ramps are so massive that it's *really* hard to carry sufficient speed through the whole line. I was easily clearing the first one, knuckling the second and passing the third entirely. As for the jumps themselves, relatively low angle, not to "lippy" or poppy (I prefer them to be mellow like this) with pristine landings. It's just the layout is not very good. They either need to spread them out, or to cut down by about half, the massive 30' mounds they are built up on, to be really rideable. Either option would really be a massive undertaking at this point, given how much snow they would have to push to get the job done right.

Playing it by ear this weekend but if I ride it will probably be local only. Might make this one a "family" weekend and forsake riding... lotta shit going on with vacation to NC next week and Test Fest and getting our bathroom remodeled, I just think I'd be pressing my luck...

would be my first weekend off, all season I think.

Or maybe I go to Jon's and jam the backyard rail/quarterpipe. I feel like I can probably get away with that one night

Not sure if I will get out this week or not. Back has improved some, no thanks to the doctors. Did some googling and Symptoms seem like it's my "Psoas" muscle that has been causing this. Doing some targeted stretches and have been taking muscle relaxer since yesterday. More improvement from those two things than all the adjustments last week, the ice, heat, rest etc.

But improvement has been incrementally small. Prolonged sitting, at computer or in truck contributes/aggravates this muscle spasm. So I'll just have to wait and see. May feel good enough by Sat. or Sun. Hope so!

Sab, wish I was heading that way! Have fun!
Dude if it is your psoas then foam roll and/or look up the pressure point to help release it. The concept is myofacial release and it does seem to help.

Damn, my drive in to work today took over an hour. Usually it's about 30 minutes.

High moisture content to this snow, very very slippery conditions out there.

I got here like 15 mins later than usual too.

My consolation is that tomorrow night I'm packing for the weekend.

It's dry and fluffy in Lansing, at least where I've been driving and at my house. Perfect pow but only maybe 4 inches or so when I left the house. It's been coming down hard all morning though so probably a few more inches before it's said and done.

Yea it appears light and fluffy, but the news said high moisture content due to the temps we are at. Not talking heavy wet LE snow. Dry powder is not this fucking slippery on the roads.

I'm just going based on the meteorologists. http://woodtv.com/2014/01/22/storm-team-8-forecast/ look at video, skip to 0:40 she explains it.
