    Not Tough Enough

    As I sit here, its 3 degrees F. Low was -3 and a high of 30 ish is predicted. Looking at the weather forecast, its supposed to be snowy and cold all week. I am not tough enough to be a bike rider in Montana!

    But hope springs eternal! Long rang forecast is for weather to warm into the 50s by next weekend and stay there for several days. At this point its a pipe dream and late winter morosity has set in. Is it ever gonna get warm enough to de-ice the roads and ride? At least the time is changing so if it ever gets warm I can get in a few rides in the evening.

    Neither am I.

    Quite frankly, I've always wondered why people live that far north when they don't have to.

    Isn't Montana a foreign country?

    Most of Montana is the last vestige of true America( so claim the natives), except the area around Bozeman and Missoula. They are more like California, which is a foreign country in my mind ( Lived on OC for 13 or so years so I know)
    Edit: Forgot to add, for those of you who think you are tough enough, our clubs annual ride in Yellowstone is April 11. It may be cold , but there are no cars allowed on the road, and its a great chance to ride along side Bison, which is a thrill or scary as hell depending on your risk tolerance.

    I'll ride as long as it's above 15 and the roads are dry. Just wear the right kind of clothes.

    Looks like about 6 inches of new snow this AM. We finally did get the basement remodeled so I have a place to set up my trainer. LIttle consolation for endless winter.
