Today it's well below freezing, the wind is gusting up to 25 MPH, and its snowing.

Winter - Bah! Humbug!

The good news (at least what I tell myself every morning) is that the Winter Solstice is only a few weeks away, and then daylight, wonderful, necessary daylight grow longer and longer.

About the same here. It's 26F with 24 MPH winds but it has quit snowing

This was the first snow of the season for us. I was in the middle of a miles long traffic jam this morning when the announcement was made that work would be on a two hour delay I've never understood why people forget how to drive in bad weather during the first snowfall of the season.

Man, life is tough for you northerners. Rode yesterday and set a new PR on a 17-mile ride I use for a standard (53:39, pace of 18.95 mph (darn it! can I call that 19 mph?)) in beautiful 68 degree weather. And the Buckeyes are gonna whup up on the boys from the Superhuman Extraterrestrial Conference. Sending out a big O - H to all the Buckeyes out there.

By the way, the jersey in the picture to the left is the OSU cycling team jersey. Support the college cycling team of your choice by buying their team jersey, not one of those crummy Adreneline Promotions jerseys.

It looks like Kens picture here to, except the sequence was switched first it rained, then it did the freezing rain then it snowed on top of that. then we got the woinderful lake effect snow last night, it made driving back from Chicago dicey. So I am making real concessions to the weather this year, new fenders on the ATB and Gators for my shoes, seemed t work pretty good tonight but I really do wish they'd plow things down a bit just to flatten the ice so its not so bumpy. I bought the last bucket of ice melter from Sam's club this afternoon made a bunch of slower geezers mad!

Yesterday's high -4C, low -18C sunrise 7:26 sunset 16:20. Fast approaching the shortest day of the year. On the plus side we don't get earthquakes, hurricanes or tornados.

Weather is here, wish you were beautiful.

Looks like another lousy day tomorrow in West Central Florida. Low of 62 and high of 82 with light winds and sunshine. Must make sure I get my ride in early to avoid the heat.

Come July we will pay for this pleasure with high humidity and heat.

You don't have to shovel high humidity and heat do you?
