    I'm sooo glad I don't have to be outside in that mess. We are supposed to have 12 inches or more additional snowfall by noon tomorrow. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/eek.gif

    I don't mean to sound hard,, but thank goodness it is you and not me!

    61`f, a bit windy, we were having our evening coffee on the deck. Did a
    a few miles on the new bike. The "new" bike I got in Oct had a bit of an
    accident yesterday. I have a sore toe and some pain in my hand.

    jeez, now I feel silly about complaining about a slight wind today. It barely ever snows here, I'm very lucky! Although living by the ocean means we do get a constant deafening wind here... but still, there's no snow in that wind :)

    Naw, that's not hard BH. It's supposed to snow in Minnesota...but, I am glad I didn't have be out in it yesterday.

    Sorry to hear about your accident, I hope you get well quickly!




    Well, if it was July and I was wanting to go for a ride I'd probably complain if it was windy too. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif

    But we had 3 or 4 days last week when the temp got into the forties and it was windy, but it felt wonderful. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/drool.gif

    Well, I'm glad you're philosophical about it, Paramount! Don't know what we're going to get tonight, some sleet some snow. I may or may not go to work tomorrow; we're required to clear the sidewalks and I have a corner lot. The ice will probably make my puny snowblower ineffective. Not complaining, just lookin forward to Spring!

    OH spoke too soon dammit. It snowed hard here last night, and because nobody is prepared for this stuff we're all kind of at a stand still. I got stuck a few times trying to drive just around the block here. I guess I won't be riding for a while.

    We got some good snow out here in Taos NM, a few inches last night and more is on the way. Big change from Central California.

    I love that. It is so cozy. If you dislike it there must be something more to it that you are missing. They should make snow tires for bicycles.

    Thought you had him blocked ;)?

    Pretty nice looking tyres but getting them just for what could be a couple days at most of snowy conditions I just do not see as practical. Ahh the Great British weather.
