    Colorado is a Mother...

    Happy Mother's Day (after)!




    Exactly a 2 months ago, NOS88 posted a complaint about Pennsylvania weather. I wonder if he's still worried about snow?

    Anchorage, AK is warmer today than Denver and isn't under a "Winter" storm warning! Stupid state!

    The amazing thing is that we have this weather today here in Co. (snowing right now) but we have already had many mid 70's+ sunny day's as well. I think it has even been in the 80's a few times.

    A couple pics of my commute this morning - May 12, 2014. You can tell this is Colorado because I have a cracked windshield.

    This is near Arapahoe & I-25 this morning about 8:15 AM. I fully admit to being a wimp and driving my nice warm car today.

    I remember thinking last weekend that it was time to take off my snow tires but I was glad I waited this morning.

    used to commute from Cherry Creek Reservoir to Arapahoe Road when i lived in Denver. good to see the weather is still variable!

    high of 84 today, currently 76, in the East Bay of San Francisco. already been out for a couple of hours. absolutely beautiful!

    BTW, i had to ride on my gifted women's three speed in stuff like that a number of times in the winter of '83. don't worry, it'll be 80 again and the road's will steam for a couple of days before you know it.

    Heard about snow in Denver on CNN last night and I ended up having a dream that it snowed here. There was a line right across the road. Rainy and 60 degrees on one side. Snowing and 59 (or something dumb like that) on the other. Then the dream changed and I was going snow boarding or skiing with a group of friends. Of course I was completely underdressed because it's May for cripes sake. Was worried whether I could make it through the afternoon without falling. At least I was wearing pants unlike a lot of dreams I have.

    There was a point to this post but don't remember what it was.

    If you're not riding with a psychedelic gecko on your shirt, you ARE having a substandard experience.

    I grew up on the front range... Snow season is always "Labor Day to Mother's Day"

    Time to pull out the skis!
    You are the 98%, you are totally without any access to the machinery of power and worse, much worse, you plug yourselves into the machinery of media and become a slave.
