Unless they magically didn't bust through the soft, white, fluffy stuff banks on Kulross Ave in Ada, then this is the first time they ran this week.

Yup. Plenty of soft, white, fluffy stuff busting photo opportunities today on the GRE. Wish I could have been out there to catch them heading to Lowell.

umm...the spur doesn't go into Nugent Sand anymore. Maybe they were just switching cars around the few tracks that are behind House of Hobbies in Roosevelt Park?
