I just checked our road’s condition, to see how the surface has held up with this afternoon’s and evening’s snow. Unfortunately, the news is not good. Although the section of the road between Rt 285 and Silver Saddle is generally in reasonable shape (however, with a few slippery spots), the segment west of Silver Saddle is still very slippery. The gravel installed last month has been ground down by traffic and does not appear to be stabilizing the surface.
Fortunately, that part of the road is level and straight, but drivers must nevertheless go very slowly and exercise great caution. I have notified Bob Sherwin of my finding and will let you know when I hear back from him. Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings.
