    8" of Snow last night - 35 mph winds tomorrow

    More days on the trainer. Ugh. Anyone on the forum thinking of traveling on I-80 through Wyoming the next couple of days might want to rethink their plans.

    It's nice here today, 60~F, sunny and calm. Forecast for the weekend is calling for rain/snow mix. The fury of winter is bound to peter out eventually.

    We haven't been above mid forties, with rain/snow/hail squalls coming through, but today should be in the fifties and into the seventies by this weekend. WooHoo, boy am I ready!

    We're looking at high 80's to low 90's for the Mulholland Double Century this weekend. I'll be using a 70 oz. Camelback plus a large (28 oz.) water bottle to try to stay hydrated.

    Plus, there's 16,500 feet of climbing, so it may take me all of the 19 hour time limit to finish.

    Still, that's better than cold, rain and snow!

    Snowing like a blizzard (almost) outside right now.

    Supposed to be 69F Monday, and I am leading our first "senior ride." Also leading a ride on Tuesday.

    About the same in the lower part of the state....65F right now. I'm not looking forward to the weekend. I just hope the storms aren't too severe as they pass through tonight and tomorrow.

    Quite pleasant over here right now- 60's- no wqind- and not a cloud in the sky. Nights are still down to freezing though. Tomorrow the same- Saturday- colder and rain- Sunday even colder and more rain.

    Why would anyone in snow country ride on a trainer? Snow is what skis are made for! I'd rather ski through -25F and blowing snow that the excruciating boredom of a bike trainer!

    But I feel your pain, like snow or not, it should just stop and let us ride (outdoors!).

    Well, it is only about 5 inches deep and slushy and there are rocks and holes and brush through the snow.

    Doesn't sound like much fun to me.

    I am sure it won't help to say that I was swimming in a clear mountain tropical river on our property today letting the water falling from the rapids caress the soreness from my body like an over-sized Jacuzzi?

    But I was working too - I was teaching my dog how to fetch sticks in the water...

    38, partly cloudy, snow flurries tonight in the last hour. Spring? OK... Saturday and Sunday are supposed to be 60-65, but I'll wait and see. May we'll take a ride around Antelope Island if the weather pans out as promised.

    Just reaffirms my relocation choice. I have not had to deal with snow for 15yrs unless I want to and actually plan to find some or business. 77 right now gorgeous day and I will be at the beach tomorrow.

    I feel your pain, bro. About 85 here today, and cooled off with a few laps in the pool after the ride.

    Actually, I don't feel your pain.
