    It was 76F here today. I rode in shorts, short sleeves and sandals w/o socks. Brutal February weather we're having this year.

    Yeah, pretty much the same story here. I did have to sip my water bottle occasionally to keep hydrated.

    Interesting, as I plan on riding in the exact same garb tomorrow.

    I remember the Blizzard of '78. I was a kid back then and I remember making snowforts in the huge drifts. I was living in Essex County, MA back then.

    On Friday I think all of my co-workers in the Denver branch office ended up working from home.

    So here in Colorado (western Colorado) I rode my mtn bike in the morning and then took my road bike out in the afternoon. It was close to 50f today.
    We have had a dry and mild winter here in the west slope.

    This is about the amount of snow we have had overnight. 5 am here and I am up--So excited about the snow

    But morning news on the TV and Britain is at a standstill. 4" in the south east and motorways blocked and a strong advice not to drive today.

    Looks like the time to get the Mountain bike out.

    Very mild winter so far here in NE, with some decent riding days. What's funny is that the Boston area TV weather people are going totally nuts. They have nothing (so far) to scream and yell about.

    There are people who love a hard winter. I knew a guy years ago, who moved to Bangor Maine, because the Boston winters weren't tough enough. Go figure.

    Just happy everyone in the Denver area on 50+ is okay. Shunning is getting old hat for me now.

    Left snow and miserable winter weather back in 1978.
    Moved from the snowbelt in Michigan to the sunbelt in Arizona.
    Have not regretted it.
    Now, where did I put my sunshine shovel . . . ?

    New bike collected Thursday- built up same day but a bit of ICE around on the road. Just the residual snow left but it is cold.

    Looks like if it warms up- The Michelin man will be doing the inaugural ride instead of me.

    I like the cold too. I figure, if it's cold you can always put on more clothes; but if it's hot, there is only so much you can take off!

    Minus 10. Is that C or F?

    One of my resentments is that I have to ask. My REAL resentment is that I tried to look them both up in the dictionary (remember those) to get the spelling right and I couldn't find either one. I really am turning into a retro grouch.

    50s!!!! Are you kidding?! I would love it to only be in the 50s. After many days of it being nice, the first day, tomorrow, I'm going to get back on the bike after letting my hand heal, the temps are supposed to be in the lower 20s with wind chill (18mph+) of 11F. Bah!

    It was forecast snow here today in the foothills of the Rockies. But, I awoke to sunshine and from my position by the fire, looking out of the window, with a mug of coffee in my hand, it appeared to be quite warm. So, off for a ride I went.

    The water in the hose of my Camelbak froze.
