    Snow, Glorious Snow

    So not only was there snow on the ground for the commute in, there was snow in the air also. Finally, you Coloradans have stopped hoarding it all. The neighbor even wished me good luck and safe riding today instead of just the normal 'your crazy' look.

    There is no hoarding of snow going on here! Trust me, we will give it away gladly! Although some woman from Ft. Collins sold 3 snowballs for $200 on Ebay...People will buy anything

    I gave her a negative mark for that purchase, all she shipped me was three bags full of water.

    It's not snowing until I need to change to studs. I gave up last month and put my slicks back on.

    As of last night I wish I had studs, I'll prob. end up buying them today if I get out early enough. Some Jack*** ATV'er got onto the bike path and turned 2/3's of the width of 2/3's of the section of it that I use into black ice. Ended up walking the bike for just under a mile. Ride in this morning wasn't nearly as bad though, I guess sun-light helps melt it and give me better visibility on what to avoid.

    I think Seattle has had more snow this season than a lot of the East Coast, and that IS amazing.

    We've got snow clogging the roads again today. wild, wacky stuff.

    I think climate change is upon us; A great, enjoyable novel about the continuance of these weather patterns is T. Coragassen Boyle's "The Fate of the Earth."

    Fantastic read. I recommend it as heavy handed fiction that outlines the deluterious effects of climate change; I predict Boyle foreshadows the upcoming decades much more accurately than Michael Creighton's pathetic, denialist take on global warming.

    those tricksey coloradoaners must be up to something, hoarding all that snow.
    are you guys working on some crazy weather control up in those mountains? It's been in the upper 30's to lower 50's and raining heavily here in Michigan, which is almost unheard of for this time of year. Where is the snow?!?! The michiganians demand their snow!!! (or at least this one does )

    Yes here we go again... another Friday that I don't ride into to work to avoid weather. On my way out of work this evening some said 'Wow your harcore'. My reply 'No, just stupid'. However, snow was lot of fun and the roads were fairly dead. I just don't want to deal with all the bundeling up and layers tomorrow.

    Still love snow. Would love it somewhere else too!
