    Tonight: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 25. North northwest wind between 3 and 8 mph.

    Thanksgiving Day: A chance of snow before 11am, then a chance of rain and snow. Cloudy, with a high near 36. North wind at 7 mph becoming east. Chance of precipitation is 30%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.


    Not too likely

    Besides, we are hosting - lots to do.

    Both Ridin' & Hidin'!!! Expect to get up at 03:30 and be out on the commuter by 04:00am.
    The five miles in to work should be peaceful followed by a quiet 12.5 hrs. at work and then ride
    home to Pumpkin pie and whipped cream. Yummy.

    edit: 11/27 05:30 Was a balmy, DRY 34 degrees, 10mph headwind and not a car in sight for
    the whole five miles. Perfect!

    Would like to be riding. Prediction is 47 & sunny. But am out of town and with no bike.

    And am supposed to be attending two Thanksgiving dinners ... hosted by different sets of in-laws.

    Been a light, steady rain here all day long.
    Tomorrow's suppose to be nicer -dry, anyway- so I'm heading out to earn dinner.
    Won't be much -15 to 20 miles- but it'll be fine.

    We had 4-6" of nice wet snow today. Another 4-6 tomorrow and Friday.
    Broke out the wind trainer two days ago...an hour a day. I don't mind the wind trainer. It is warm, dry and windless...oh does my fan count as wind?

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving all.

    Velodiva and I are racing up Mount Hamilton in the morning 18.5 miles. The temperature at the start will be in the upper 40s. It should be a great day for climbing.

    Cgallagh and I are joining our race team for a group ride, probably 35-40 miles, moderately hilly, similar temps. to what Hermes posted. Then C will bake his famous pecan pie, our son will roast his tofurkey, and we'll take it all over to our friends' house to add to the 2 turkeys, 1 ham, dozens of sidedishes and sea of family their hosting.

    We call the pre-meal ride "Huff 'n' Puff Before You Stuff."

    Friday is our Turkey Work-off. Route TBD.

    If the roads are clear of snow and ice I might go out for a short ride. Didn't hear the weather forecast, so we'll see how it goes. Rode the (gasp) trainer today for an hour just in case.

    Kids and grandkids will be here for dinner to celebrate the holiday. It always looks like a Norman Rockwell painting around our kitchen table on Thanksgiving. No thanks to me...Maddy does all the work, I just stay out of her way.

    If it's not raining we'll go for a ride of still-yet-to-be determined distance and route. I'd like to ride for at least an hour or two before we finish the dishes we'll take for dinner tomorrow.

    What one person considers bitter, another calls better. Just one little vowel different.

    Have a good ride.

    I did 50 miles yesterday, will do most of the cooking for 7 today, and have a 64 mile ride planned for tomorrow. But today is a whole day with the family. I've brought my favorite bike into the sun room with the extra refrigerator. This way whenever I go out to get something, I can pat the saddle and say, "Tomorrow. Your day will be tomorrow."

    Everyone is still asleep this morning except for me and the cat. This will be a day spent with the family. I was going to go out for a ride before company gets here but my wife said she would like a little help in the kitchen. I'm not much help in the kitchen, but then she doesn't ask for much, mostly company while she works very hard. I will ride tomorrow.

    Today will be spent with the family.

    Due to weather I'll probably hit the gym on Friday and do a club ride on Saturday as the weather report is much better that day

    Supposed to get up to around 54 here today. Probably do a couple of laps around the neighborhood, just to get out and get some fresh air.

    I'm sitting this one out, sort of.

    Sunday and Monday this week were my first two consecutive days off in several weeks. So I carped both diems and deferred laundry and housework to today, so I could get in some good, solid R&R.

    So far, whites, work clothes and bike clothes washed and hung to dry, and the straightening up done. Breaking now for lunch, then the bathroom and mopping floors. Shower after that and off to dinner at my parents'.
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

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