I have to commute down to Rockville tomorrow at the a$$crack of dawn and work.

I'd rather be biking in 10degree weather personally.

Pedex says windchill is irrellevant. But ask your toes what THEY think after the ride tomorrow.

Stop whining anyway. Here in the Hudson Valley lately we can only wistfully dream of a nice blamy 22 day. Sigh. Soon enough, Spring is on the way.

I had TTT practice during a snowstorm last week.

But then again, it is mid-50's and sunny all week this week. All's fair... or just a little bit sunnier in colorado

Oh I wish. But there is this little Daylight saving patch BS that I have to do tomorrow. I can't really reschedule for next week. It would be too late.

Plus it would be more like watching me get spit off the back of the line like a bad habit.

I saw teams out rowing on the potomac at 3 p.m. today while it was snowing, I doubt they'd feel bad for you.

dont go...it's only giving my TTT unit more of a chance to blow you out of the water this weekend! We were out yesterday with 25mph winds and such and it sucked real bad, so i feel your pain

(is your team racing C's?)

This is why I stopped racing and just ride whenever the heck I want to. Wind? Rain? Smog warning? Illegal Alien protests? I'll go another day when it's sunny.

Good ol' AI - watched him in HS single-handily run over my old HS football team as a QB in the playoffs then come back a few months later to the hard court and do it again in the state playoffs. Caught a few games at Georgetown and whenever Philly came to play the Bullets (they'll never be the Wizards to me).
