I went - cause I'm less than a mile from Haines. There was zero traffic downtown - place was deserted, made dodging puddles and snow banks pretty easy.


View outside my apartment.


Sherwood


PNC & Christoph on the MTBs. Haines was closed, I had my road bike, wasn't going in.

Deserted streets ... (Ist NW)

Would I lie? Thundersnow is all the rage. Trendy weather systems. phlp!

In other news. My bike is in pieces on my kitchen floor so I did not attempt hains. I went to Revolution to pick up new bearings and they were closed due to the snow...wimps!

Do Pirates really pillage and plunder?
That's more Vikings or Mongols than Pirates.
Just saying...

That sounds like pirate behavior to me. Not that the DC Pirates rob or take things by force...well we take the streets by force...but other than that.

The streets may be covered in snow tonight, but the winds are a changing and this wednesday calls for fair 50's. So how about a post snow, post V-day, post Tink's Bday and (for those who ride fixed)post over potholes streets bash. Wednesday 7:00, pillaging starts from homebase, the warehouse.
