snowing in Buenos Aires

It is snowing in Buenos Aires, last time it snowed with anything sticking to the ground was 1936, not sticking yet but it is still odd. It is a holiday and I intended to ride my single. Stoker is out of town, and my son who has also stoked on occasion only a agreed to a 2 km ride to the Kansas restaurant and back, then it started to snow. So I'll just stay at home and have a mate, if I get really energetic I might go down to the garage and clean up the bike a bit.

Have ridden in the snow . . . sort of fun at first. Then the flakes start sticking to your jacket, then the wind picks up, then you start getting wet/cold . . .
Didn't realize that B/A got snow . . . global cooling/hole inthe ozone layer?
Right now we are experiencing temps near 100, strong winds, lots of wild fires. Did get in a 24 mile ride with loads of headwinds straight in the face coming back.
Want to trade?

If you are in Bs. As. and you want to ride, might be able to fix you up somehow. We have a regular club ride on Wed and Fri 8:00 pm.
