Snuck out late afternoon after a final trip to the grocery store in preparation for a Christmas Eve and Christmas Day feast with family in from far flung places (England, Kansas, Arkansas, Texas). Tough to get out, given time constraints and the desire to spend as much time as possible with people you don't get to see nearly often enough.
Ran a short loop through the neighborhood, including the Sleepy-S, Elk Run, Meadow View loop in Elk Meadow Open Space. Trails were, of course, snow-packed. It was really nice to run on the snowy trails under the light of the moon. One of the many splendors of a snow-covered landscape is how little moonlight you need to run at night, since the snow reflects all available light.
