Lonely, dark, and slippery  @ Batteau this morning. Run to the AO – Run around the AO – Run back home. Scrape the ice of the cars = Boom ! Got word that Vinny would not be there last night – figured Sippy might not be there because the bridge is closed – Bleeder might still be in Wintergreen – so when 5:30 hit and nobody else was there I was not surprised or deterred because you only need 5 letters to define the word commitment – ALL IN ! (Swirly’s Board) See y’all in the gloom..

5 studs found the deepest of gloom in Forest Hill Park for a Batteau beatdown that went something like this: The initial foursome moseyed (carefully) to the  flat concrete area at the bottom of the steps but right before the Hill of Ill Repute for COP, including: DQs Helicopters OH, we see a light, who could that be — the light is too high, so its not Sippy, and then Swirly says “looks like ABBA” … really, from 35-40 yards out in the darkest of glooms, Swirly identified ABBA somehow – from his gate or his scent …how?  Who knows,…

As I ran to the AO in complete silence this morning (which was awesome)  I already knew that there were a few regulars that would not be there. Running in boots through a foot of snow I was breathing fairly heavy as I arrived. There was a black truck headlights facing the opposite direction of how we usually park so I could not be sure it was one of us. Come to find out it was my buddy Flange! OK I thought – party of two ! Errrrr… Flange jumped out of the truck an informed me that he had…
