Sunday was supposed to be sunny, 48, blue bird and it was at 8am. I left MD early to blue skies, 50-degree temperatures and only grabbed my jacket to be safe. Our plan was to make the 4hr drive west to check out Coles cove. The temperature gauge in Brian’s car doesn’t work exactly, but it does measure some form of temperature, even if it’s not the temperature outside. The closer we got to our destination the lower the temperature was dropping. 30, 20, 18, 13, and finally stopped somewhere around 8. We were pretty sure the car was using some non linear algebra to calculate the temperature; it definitely wasn’t 8 outside… as to what the temperature really was outside? I put the window down and we quickly concluded it was really, really cold. I pulled out my handy phone, Sunny and 35 is what the screen said… I looked outside, snow and well below freezing... Back to the phone, refresh, refresh.. no luck, we had been had by weather.com and I was almost completely unprepared, praise the lord I grabbed my jacket. Basically my trip to Coles Cove became walking around in 2 inches of snow while being snowed on. The western PA boys were psyched though, and I was really psyched to see all the rock at Coles. As with many western PA areas, Coles hosts gritstone boulders ranging in size and difficulty. The stuff that’s good there would be considered good anywhere. The plan is to make another trip out this weekend pending the weather. I saw some stuff that got me very motivated to get back sooner than later.
