When the office is closed due to weather, it typically means that severe winter weather is here. The Midwest Blizzard of 2011 started with round one last evening across much of Indiana. Some snow, but mostly ice, fell across the Hoosier state. When I woke up and looked out the window, however, the blizzard looked like it fizzled out or had taken a break.
I got to work and learned that I didn’t have to be there. So, I did a few things and went home. When I got home, I shoveled the snow and ice off the walks, and while doing so, I thought: I’m gonna take the snowshoes for a spin to be sure the bindings are good/set for the foot of snow they’re saying we’ll have by tomorrow afternoon.
The Wabash Heritage Trail follows the banks of said river between Lafayette and Battleground. Foot traffic only, is the name of the game. It’s flat, easy-going and for the most part, not used all that much. Though sometimes it can be a little boring to walk, especially when you’ve walked it umpteen times, winter usually is a nice change of pace.
