Snow storm number 2 coming down today on the day off from work.  Looks like about 2-3 inches on the ground around 2pm. 

First run on the home TM that we bought nearly 1 year ago :)  We have it set up in a room facing out the Western facing window, so it was nice to watch the snow fall from inside. 

The shocks/springs on the running platform give it a flex/spring action, that really hurt the knees.  Its a nice interface, and functional in a pinch, but, probably not too much more mileage on that thing.  8 miles with alternating speed and incline, 228 vertical feet recorded.  1:06:10
