You were wise. I didn't want to be deterred by a little light snow, so off I went. Sure enough, the snow was no problem -- except where it disguised a nasty patch of bumpy ice on a path through the park. By the time I decided to unclip and get a foot down, it was too late. Landed on my elbow and hip on a frozen snowbank. I'm fine, except for a couple of bruises, but I think I'll confine my snowy-day rides to the gym from now on. I am truly ready for spring.

It's supposed to snow here in the lower elevations of California tomorrow night, If it does, and it sticks, I'll be out there on my three-wheeler doing donuts in the middle of the street with my cam in my hand Yes, there will definitely be video

How'd you get my dog? If that's not my dog, then do you want a twin for your dog? I'll ship him to you for free! I think they'd like that, must've been separated at birth, judging by that rearward pic.
