    SNOW is a Four-Letter Word

    Snow is a four-letter word and that's all I have to say about that.

    Not really.

    I foolishly thought getting a nice long ride in yesterday would make things better for a while. Just the opposite, it made it worse.

    Argh! Why do we weather whimps stay in the snow belt?

    I love snow myself But I have a friend who hates it. He won't even say its name.... just calls it "that white ****." (and the *s indicate a real 4 letter word)

    And oh--his job? He plows snow!

    Wilke:
    Saw your photo blog at www.skinnyski.com from the Birke. At least they had good weather for the event this year.

    We have a 7-foot plie of snow at the end of our driveway. Gee, sure hope that's gone by May...

    No comment on today since that would involve the C*** and S*** words, but

    yesterday we made it over 50

    and life was good to the tune of a fine forty-mile ride. Yes, there were puddles. Yes, I was not quite careful enough on a remaining ice patch. Yes there is some road rash and a few bruises, but who cares? We had riding weather even for weather wimps.

    Perhaps there is life in the Midwest after all.

    Just a short, careful ride for me yesterday. Temps were fine but there were plenty of slippery ice blobs still scattered around waiting to teach me lessons about traction and gravity. I was hoping for more rain to erase them but it didn't work out that way.
