Check out crazy N.C. weather...

Up and down like this every year, but maybe can ride a few miles next weekend!

I am in New York visiting my daughter... today we awoke to about 18 inches of snow, cold wind and unplowed streets. It is amazing how people help each other out. We dug out three cars as well as my son-in-law's. Very big sense of community here in Brooklyn. Hopefully the roads will be sort of back to normal as I am taking the bus back to DC on Wednesday night... no biking here, but great times with the grandkids

train safe

We have been having it rough over here. We are not prepared for lots of snow and when the roads- trains and Planes can't run- people have been justfiiably upset. Heathrow and Gatwick airports were closed and road travel has been difficult. Trains in the South were virtually non-existant and all of this was because we did not expect the weather to be as severe and we were not prepared.

Funny thing is that according to the News--The rest of Europe did not have the problem --Except for France where the airports were closed- Belgium where they were waiting for the De-icer for the runways that was stuck in a snowdrift in France and even Sweden had problems. Northern Europe closed down for a few days but we had the shining example of The U.S.A. where they never have problems.

I have 10" in my yard right now. The snow from the last storm melted just last week. Maybe we'll get winter over early. This is more weather than we're used to down this way.

Its been cold and snowy here but not nearly as bad as NC or points north. I'm looking forward to those 60 degree temps.
