To reach 6000 miles for the year, I need 450 miles for December. That is not as tall an order as the 500 miles I projected last month but December is usually (always?) under 400 miles.
Never say never. Onward to a record breaking December:

December is normally wet. December 2017 was nearly bone dry. The only rain was a brief shower early one Thursday morning. The result: deep concern that the drought had returned and skate mileage that rivals mid-summer.

The previous December record, 2016, was swept away by over 100 miles.

Speed held surprisingly steady. In December, if it doesn't rain, it gets cold. It felt slow.

Needless to say, I met my annual goal but that is the subject for another post in another thread.
