Thank you all for bearing with us today. We had first hoped to get a run in but after arriving at the park and discussing with the park staff it was simply too icy. The park was not able to salt the paths and the temperature in the park remained below freezing despite it being warmed in most areas near the park. We hate to cancel as we all love the series, especially the Polar Bear 8 with the amazing chili!!!! We were able to donate the pretzels and other perishable items today so making sure the food did not go to waste.
Thank you so much Matthew Conard and Jennifer Nat for all your hard work and for keeping your smiles even though we all know the PB 8 is cursed!! 😂. Thank you also to the volunteers who were ready to help.
See you all next week! John O’Brien will be back in charge!!!
