    Winter Storm coming in!

    Tomorrow, temperature supposed to drop like a rock, rain sleet, freezing rain and turn to 3-6 inches of snow! GAAAAAAAAAAAH! It had to come I suppose, but I'd be happy without snow!

    I think we got hit with here in CA yesterday? We've had drastically lower temps, very strong winds, just no snow (I'm originally from beautiful upstate New York where there was always snow)

    Hi, KOAS!

    I was just lurking around on different forums. Just got in from a quick 12-miler, and about to download my data, but thought I'd check on one of my threads, and, as usual, got distracted by other threads. I love BF!

    Sorry to hear about the snow. Maybe you could put a little snowplow on the front of your bike. Would increase your METS.

    Here, it's drizzly (yes, I've got that little track up my back, and splattered legs), but unseasonably warm. May even have a thunderstorm this afternoon. Hope I get my second ride in before then!

    Do you have a trainer? If so, what kind? I'm looking at a CycleOps Fluid 2. Sometimes, when I'm dealing with certain paperwork at night, I could really use a good ride, you know?

    We have a forecast of snow for every day next week in CNY! I hate riding the EB but have no choice.

    KOAS,

    You're temps look good. Not so much on the rain.

    We are working our way out of the freezer here. This morning's ride was 18F into a 25-40 mph North wind was one of the toughest to date.

    Despite the rain today, I am enjoying my last day of Indian Summer - temps are supposed to start falling tomorrow, with highs in the upper 20s-lower 30s through the weekend and next week. I suppose it had to happen, but I did enjoy the weather over the last week or so, especially since I was able to give the new road bike a decent breaking in, rather than having to wait until spring to do so! Goodbye summer fun rides, hello again, cold, dreary winter commutes.

    Tuesday morning I rode in 68 F at sunrise. I was wearing summer attire. Thursday morning (today) I rode in 18 F with fierce North winds. Today I was in full winter attire. That sort of temp swing is hard to adjust to.

    Good choice of trainer. I use a roller myself, works on bike handling skills, don'tcha know!

    I'm afraid to use rollers. With my luck, I'll start staring at the wall, do something stupid like sneeze, and then go right through it!

    Yeah, I know Sarasota and Tampa well, a2psyklnut. Went swimming in Sarasota about this time of year in 2002. Very nice, and the water was delightfully warm!

    Let me guess, you have Grandparents that live down here?

    j/k, I love Sarasota, while everyone else is freezing we are starting our prime cycling season.

    My only complaint is that I have to drive over an hour to get to some 'decent' mountain biking trails.

    We just got served completely.

    It started this morning as rain, by 3 it started flurries, by the time it took me to get from university to the downtown core on a bus (15 minutes) there were already accidents and we almost got in one ourselves. It took an hour and 45 minutes to get home (normally an hour max). The visibility was maybe 50-100m then it was complete whiteout conditions.

    It finally stopped, I arrived home looking like a snowman, soaked and cold (wool doesn't hold up as well in high wind) and I met the postman at the door who was delivering my waterproof snowboard jacket.

    No, a2psyklnut, no family there. My late husband and I had yearly business in the area, usually in November. Do have a friend who plays piano in a bar/restaurant near Tampa.

    Used to be brutal making the ride back. We'd stop just north of Jax, where it was already 10degF cooler, and then it'd be at least 10-15degF cooler than the Jax area by the time we got back to NC. Brrrrr!

    So, KOAS! How's the weather now? Are ya ridin' or hidin'?

    I'm FREEZIN! I lost a measurable portion of a ton in the last 21 months and I don't have the insulation I used to!
