I think I'm crazy, lately I've been dreaming...

That I'm riding in the snow covered streets in winter, and not only snow covered but the snow is so deep there were tunnels to ride through. It was sick (in the good way) I wake refreshed and illin' for the snow. I see where Saturday we're to get in the mid thirties! YES!!!!
Glad I just think I'm crazy, I'd be worried if I really was.

Mid 30's? Mybe I should start paying attention. It would be nice if more people rode in the winter here...

I think I'm crazy too.

Bizzare.. Last night I had a dream that I got an IT job at the U of M and commuted every day in snowy Minneapolis. I remember in my dream that every morning commute was very quiet due to the fresh snow on the ground.

Perhaps I should pursue this...


And yes, upper midwest people are nutters..

No, that's right. That's a good dream.

My last snow dream I dreamt I was riding in Paris, I spoke and understood French. It really bothered me. I don't speak French that well. And does it snow in Paris? Not like here I don't think.

Ever sense I read this I have been having dreams.

I'm riding along over a trail the trail just falls out from under me. Then I'm 10,000' in the air. For some reason I grab the shoulder strap of the back pack and it becomes a parachute. Riding the wind and having a great time. I float safely all the way to my house. Go figure!

I'm getting sick of our late summer here. It has been in the 60's and 70's all week. Last night, the LOW was 63F. I've been wearing summer gear in late October!

If it's true that Columbus's weather is our weather yesterday plus 5-10 degrees, tomorrow should suck for you. Indeed, Friday's 73 degree high was downright wierd.

Our Saturday high was 77F. So your guess was within 1 degree. Not a bad guess. But it was windy as heck. I almost didn't ride because of it. I even saw some scaffolding come down.

Just on the topic of dreams ... last night I dreamed that someone stole my bicycle, and my T-shirt. That was weird. I woke up all sad that my bicycle was stolen, until I realised it was a dream.
