    We are having wind gusts up to 50mph this morning. My 160lbs is going to get tossed around like a rag doll. Temp is 34 wind chill around 17. It would be cool if I could catch a tail wind though!

    We're in the low 20's this morning. That's cold for Seattle.

    My coldest commute to work the past two winters was 24 degrees; yesterday I rode in to work at 18 degrees.

    However, I'm learning that dry and cold is more comfortable for riding than our typical winter weather, which is 37 degrees and raining.

    Upper 60s to lower 70s and very windy here today. Rained like crazy last night and this morning. Forecast is all over the place for the next week with highs ranging from 43 to 67 and lows from 33 to 46. Sun, rain, windy, calm, cool, warm...we'll have it all.

    We've been blessed with 16" of snow in the past 24 hrs. and are currently experiencing 40 mph winds and a temp of 10 degrees with a wind chill of -12 . I think I'll pass on riding today.

    It was 60 degrees yesterday PM here in CenTx. I did 25miles with knee warmers and arm warmers as the temp dropped. This AM it was 25 and I wore an overcoat to my office, most unusual.

    It's officially 14 degrees here, looking for a forecast high of 17. My indoor/outdoor thermometer says 20 outside, 72 inside. I think I'll stay inside as much as possible.

    Reading these post has, once again, reinforced in my mind the places that I don't want to consider as possible retirement communities. Having knees that will no longer permit skiing, and not liking other outdoor winter sports, all I can say is that winter sucks.

    New record for me this morning - 16 degrees on my bike thermometer. I've ridden in colder weather, but this was my coldest commute to work ever. Yippee!

    Mid 60s here today but lots of wind. We're on that December temperature roller-coaster. Warm one day, cool the next. Snow flurries are predicted for Friday evening. I did get in a ride Sunday and the temp was 37. It was fine riding up the hill but coming down it was too cold. Windchill at 35mph is painful at those temps.

    30 C in Bridgetown today. Always a shock to leave the NE area to come down and ride for a couple of days.

    Are you refering to the City of Bridgetown, the capital and largest city of the nation of Barbados?

    ]snow3.JPGUK is still soggy. May get the start of the cooler weather this weekend but still no sign of the cold stuff.mtb3.jpg

    But we had a bit of snow about 4 years ago- Expect to see the pics of tyre tracks across the Scenery now.

    Sorry about the Extra pic but still playing with the new interface.

    It was near Maybell, about 46 years ago, that I shot my first (and last) deer!

    There wasn't much there then, but I haven't been out that way in - well, - I guess about 46 years!!

    Probably a lot of energy stuff, now, and it is right close to the Dinosaur National Monument!

    Here is an update on Maybell:

    Situated in the northwestern corner of Colorado, tiny Maybell watches the placid waters of the Yampa River flow by, 60 miles downstream from the town of Craig. This is rugged Colorado land, covered with hearty sage, cedar, juniper and ponderosa pines. Canyons carve through the landscape and you are just as likely to see elk and eagles as you are another human. The area's remoteness attracts residents and visitors alike, from the Wild Bunch outlaws in the 1860s to present-day birdwatchers and others just looking for a little solitude.

    Maybell is a small ranching community with a school, restaurant, gas station and general store. If you are headed through on Highway 40, the Cowboy and Gunfighter Museum in Craig details this area's rough past.

    About the same distance to the west lies Brown's Park National Wildlife Refuge, 13,500 acres of protected wetlands. Two hundred species of birds live here, including bald and golden eagles, as well as peregrine falcons. The park welcomes horseback riders, birdwatchers, sightseers and hikers year round. In areas like Maybell you'll find rugged beauty in one of nature's finest playgrounds. There isn't a great deal of amenities outside of Maybell, but there's plenty of room for adventure.

    -20 windchill here with a foot of snow and 35 to 50 mph winds. I have several 5ft to 10ft drifts just to get to my car. That's the yard, the road is about the same way.

    This may not be much for you in colder areas, but I had my coldest commute ever this morning: 29
    East SF Bay area.

    Cold enough for me!
