Another taste of Spring...

Temps. in the low 80's today but snow forecast for tomorrow!!

Took a little ride to soak in some of nature's beauty.







Now let me see....where did I stash that snow shovel?

Think you left it over here along with the 2 sacks of Gritting salt that I have in the garage. Since buying the salt we have only had a bit of frost. Despite the weather changing and 4" of snow forecast.

Temps are up and down like a yo-yo over here and last weekend was not too cold temp wise but a northerly strong wind took any heat away. This week and from tomorrow it is going to be raining so as the sun was out I went for a 30 miler. It was 4 layer day with a warm coat on as the final layer and I froze. Got home and temp was only 36F-- yesterday was cold but it was at 40F.

I thought this would be a thread about swallowing bugs while riding.
