    sucks to be you.

    My first class wasn't canceled and I almost rode my bike to school. Glad I didn't, because during class is when the blizzard really started hitting. I would've ended up having to walk home... Instead, I put the truck in 4 wheel drive and took off...

    Blizzard? We had some rain last weekend. I think that's it for the winter inclement weather here.

    Seriously? The only thing different from the norm is wind.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Now, do you hate me because it's snowing and a perfect time to board, or is the hate more generalized and you just also happen to want to board?

    I laugh, because it's supposed to be 60 here tomorrow.

    Did I mention that I've used up my entire lifetime's supply of tolerance for snow.

    I can ride tomorrow. You can't.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    This is Colorado in the springtime. I wouldn't be surprised if it's 70 tomorrow.

    Yeah, but you have to live in Sactown, so it's really kinda moot....

    a) Don't ever call it that again. *cringe*
    b) I most certainly won't be here.

    My bad... I won't ever mention Sactown again. No siree, the word Sactown will never leave my lips again. You have changed my mind on using that word, Sactown.




    You out riding again? Where do you ride?

    yeah, I thought that was kinda silly, but when I got out of class at 10 this morning, it was stupid... only lasted for an hour or so, though...

    This one was a bit lame. I think they overreacted a bit due to the blizzards a few years ago.
    Especially the one that shutdown the highways for a bit. Then there was the blizzard of 2003 where snow fell straight for two days and my power was out while my wife was pregnant. That and I was trying to keep tropical fish and a gecko warm. Amazingly enough a plow came down my street. Thornton never plows.

    There's some, but I like it o'er there. That's about as far as I regularly go, though. A lot of the time it's half that distance.
