Go back where you came from, warm weather!

Grrr!! It's winter! why is it almost 40 degrees around here?

this is by far the worst riding I've had all winter. I was happy and content plowing through snow and ice. Now I have to crawl through 3 inch deep puddles (no fenders) and have to put up with these rediculous winds too!! This morning I was getting contant 20mph winds head on from the west, then when I turned south on my route the wind was coming from that direction!!! I figured I would have an easy ride home, going north and east, but no! The wind somehow managed to keep coming head on no matter which way I went. There were a number of times where a gust of wind would literally almost blow me over.

I want my snow and ice and misery for all the others!

We're headed back to twenty below tonight. It's because I just put away my heavy boots.

hoorah! I think it heard me!

woke up this morning to some nice frigid air, and the deep puddles are frozen over again! I believe we're supposed to be getting some heavy snows on Sunday, or whatever's left over when it gets here.
