I have rode all winter, but I am getting tired of knocking the frost off the bike at 6 am to ride home 35 to forty miles is zero degrees weather.  I am just about to the point I do not want to ride until it is at least forty degrees out.

 Lol That's a dusting.  That's not snow.  You all don't know how good you have it down there.

This is snow:



Not my vehicle.  That vehicle wouldn't even get out of my driveway when its cleared.  Last week we had a snowstorm that dumped that much on our 4x4s though.  We still have over a foot on the ground.  Drift out by the road beside my driveway is over 5' still.  Snow...yeah....right!

YAY! Politics!

 Actually, global warming will result in longer, colder winters. Unless we have a runaway greenhouse effect. then will be more like Venus.

There is a fair amount of non-gore, mostly neutral stuff out there about it, if you a) believe it's real and b) care enough to know.

Well, looks to be high 30's today, and mid to high 40's through tomorrow and the weekend. Hopefully some of the crap will melt off the roads before Saturday, because if all holds out, I'm taking a road trip!
