    We have rain in Arkansas, but Oklahoma has an ice storm, and it's heading north not east, so things seem pretty hunky dory here.

    Welcome to the 50+ forum.

    We have rain here too. But it is freezing on the trees. Not yet on the ground or roads. Sounds like there are some major opwer outages to the North of us, on the evening news they were reporting 30" trees coming down due to the weight of the ice. YIKES!
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Welcome, crazylady. They've extended the ice storm warning here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area until Monday morning. But I'm grounded from surgery anyway, so if there has to be an ice storm, I guess this is as good a time as any.

    Tell us about yourself. You'll find some good listeners here.

    She may be crazy, but she's obviously not indoctrinated yet.

    Hey, this isn't another Diego disguise is it?

    Oh, 19 degrees Fahrenheit at SeaTac airport. Still plenty of leftover snow. The roads, however, are mostly clear. But some tricky patches here and there. Mind the hills!

    Snowed last night again, maybe another inch. The sun is out but I can't ride as it is only 3 degrees. More snow forecasted for tonight (again, maybe another inch). I just finished digging out my sidewalk from the blizzard snowfall and I just about have my basement cleaned out from Christmas storage. The new trainer will be going in as soon as the last of the furniture is moved around. I suppose its better to ride the trainer indoors than not to ride at all, but I sure do miss getting out.

    Where are you? What bike do you ride? How good a cook are you? and can you Get a pie to DG before he gets another bike?

    Welcome to the forum- and hope we don't offend too much. Rain is not too bad here but it is made worse with the high winds we are experiencing. Temps not so bad at 40+ but Horizontal rain and wind chill makes it feel colder. Roll on Summer when we can get some warm rain- Or an extension to the hose pipe ban we still have.

    I'm nearly 200 miles south of BudBent so we're just getting rain and 50 degrees. Maybe ice if the temps drop lower tomorrow. School holiday on Monday but all the college students are coming back for spring semester so it could be a dangerous situation if half the state is iced up.

    Welcome, crazylady, to a bunch of folks crazy about cycling! You can post a bio & pic to the Rogues Gallery or just give us some background info as you please.

    Welcome crazylady. I'm 100 miles west of Budbent. Just back in from a 12 mile ride...28 degrees and chill factor in the teens, roads wet but no ice yet. My coldest ride since college I think. A hard pedal out and then coasted back home on the wind.

    Mid sixties and partly cloudy here in Georgia today. Did a great 55 miler. Seventies and cloudy for the next two days, then cooler and rainy. My trainer won't get much use at this rate.

    What kind of pie did you bring. No matter what Dnvr says, it doesn't have to be blueberry (but it's just fine if it is).
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    Never broke 50 here in LA today. Did a very windy 80 mile loop to the Rose Bowl and never got warm.
    Yeah, I know that sounds pitiful to you guys in the frozen north but this is LA, we're not really used to this.
    Just wait till it's 118 F, you won't hear us complaining.

    I ride a recumbent trike. No balance for 2 wheels. My easy chair on wheels. DG never told what type of pie he wanted. Ok Sorry
