    Whooo! Work called it a snowday but I'm riding in!

    My employer called it this morning but there's still some critical stuff to be done....and the temps are not as nasty as they predicted so I'm hopping on the Pugsley shortly. I'm actually excited about this ride across the moon.

    Brrrr. I'll probably ride at least as far as the library. Part of me is looking forward to it, part of me is cringing and shivering.

    I'm a wimp today. -15F air temp and -60F wind chill. Not worth losing my nose, fingers or toes.

    I know the southwest has wussed me out. You can tell because I think the upper 30's is now to cold for me. Live long enough in the desert and what's warm winter day for northerners, is downright freezing for us.

    Me too.

    Oh, wait...

    I work at the library.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    .....and my car was stuck in my own driveway. The bicycle gods are angry and demand sacrifice.
