Hi Folks,

Well once again "life has gotten in the way" of life. There is no real Report this week because all of my time was taken up with dealing with the effects of this site and forum crashing on Tuesday afternoon. It took 2 days of futzing around to get things back and running again. Thank god I was able to find a reasonably recent backup! Couple that with my regular Windows XP machine going belly up, the guitarist in my band announcing that he was leaving town in 2 weeks, it's been raining for 3 days and my wife and son being away in Wisconsin for a week...well you get the picture. And I thought that I was going to get a little vacation. [wry grin] Oh yeah, the program that I wrote that email's out the Report was on that machine that died. I have a backup of that as well, but not as handy as I would like.
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective February 16, 2018
As of 2/15, there was still plenty of ice standing. That said it was a very balmy 44 today, won't be cold tonight and looks to be warm again tomorrow (Friday). A cooler weekend will prevail, but next week looks to be even warmer! If you are climbing this weekend, just be aware that the ice may be hero, but it may also be crap!
Huntington Ravine many options, check AVY danger  
Repentance it was IN, but I'm not sure how long it will remain! Click to see route picture.
Standard Route IN Click to see route picture.
Dracula IN great Click to see route picture.

I could get all "antsy" about this kind of thing, but frankly it's simply not worth the effort. It's probably time to make a change in the band, I needed to reinstall the OS on my desktop machine and I guess that the site problems were a wakeup-call for making better and more frequent backups. No one got hurt in any of this, I was just a little inconvenienced and life will go on. Maybe it will make me appreciate the quiet times a little more. Hope you are having a great summer...

Well if you have a smart phone handy, you can get to NEClimbs from anywhere you have cell service.
