    About 4" up here, still snowing a bit. Had up to 1/2 of ice on the car driving home from Beloit last night.

    Re: Photo's from yesterday

    The photo of the xXx guy winning is fantastic. A little more depth of field may have helped a tad.

    Whatever, it's pretty much melted now.

    Anyway, we can continue this later. I'm going for a ride. See you in 3 hours, internet.

    It wasn't that bad.

    I rode the Fox river trail to Algonquin (snow made for better workout & bike handling skills), lots of trees down on the trail. I took to the again salty roads on the way back.

    Alright. That's it. Right? The last blast of winter is behind us!

    It wasn't bad at all. The worst part of my ride, in fact, was hearing "Ironic" by Alanis Morissette at the base of this little doosie


    Last time i ever allow "Billboard Top 250 Songs of the 90's" on my ipod

    Highs in the low 40's for the next 10 days here along with rain/snow at some level for many of them. Sure glad I bought that new bike 3 weeks ago...at least I got to watch the CI on tv yesterday.

    I never liked you
    and the road becomes my bride
    I have stripped of all but pride
    So in her I do confide
    And she keeps me satisfied
    Gives me all I need

    It is what it is, a very short very steep hill. 15% grade at one point...

    It's the rain that I don't like but the temps...you can ride. I rode yesterday. My route is west bound and back. It was great going west. Riding along with the cars in the 25mph zone. Keeping the pace at 27mph for stretches. The way back SUCKED. 14mph - 17mph into the wind. BUT...I rode.
