Storm damage on Buttermilk Trail

Buttermilk Trail was a mess yesterday afternoon. I actually didn’t ride all that much of it — just the section from 21st St. to Reedy Creek — because it was impassable in so many places. Sadly, the worst damage I saw was to the relatively new boardwalk skinnies over the wetland area not too far east of Reedy Creek. I remember when the city trail crew and a host of volunteers built this thing. It took a ton of labor and man hours to construct it. It might be a while before it’s open again. Here are some pics.
