Where are you?

You put information about your rides and the weather with no indication of where you are. This makes the information worthless.
There is no need to be specific.
How about putting the part of the state that you live in as part of your profile that will show up in your posts?

I'm right here, where I usually am. Unless I'm somewhere else. But: how can you be in two places at once, when you're not anywhere at all?

Mine seems kind of self explanatory. I even added a map with a yellow dot.

Right now I'm here, sometimes I'm overthere. When I discuss the weather I am usually referring to that which is outdoors unless I am riding on my trainer...

Which part of your house is the trainer located?

Sometimes it is in the Sunroom in which case the weather is 65 degrees with a slight breeze, those times it is in the basement the weather is 60 degrees, slightly humid with a moderate wind.

Alice is wise, I think I said that before.

I am in front of my computer screen in Henderson, NV. Its a little chilly for us in the SW. But in the last half hour my imagination has been to Crested Butte on a warm summer day, NW, NM in the four corners, weather was good. My mind can transport faster that Capt. Kirk's transporter room.....

Reality vs imagination, hmmm
