Just started to go for a ride, and it's sprinkling here in Garland. Bummer.

Don't friggin tell me there's snow-ish weather in Texas today! I'm in sunny Socal with the inlaws. I think we're gonna have a high of about 72, went for a ride this morning with the borrowed Tarmac I've got. Yes, a Socal BF'er let me borrow his Campagnolo equipped Tarmac S-Works!!! Unfortunately I don't think I'm going to be able to sneak out of town with it.

I finished up at the table around 1:00 p.m. then bundled up and took a nice 10 mile ride around the neighborhood. Kind of cool and windy but after about 5 minutes, my "heater" kicked in.

I rode 39 miles to Thanksgiving dinner yesterday through the snow. I looked like an icicle when I got there, but it was worth it. Nice to have a little snow, makes things look a lot nicer.

Bah. I hate this - I moved to Texas to get away from winter. I was supposed to do 60 yesterday and 200k tomorrow. Doubt it's going to happen now!

Yeah, this morning we had a Free Agent ride planned. It got called off because there was a 90% chance of rain, temperatures in the low 40's, and winds near 10 mph. I woke up this morning to find it raining hard, winds gusting up to 15 mph, and a wind chill of 37* (news reported) with an outside temperature right at 42*.

weather sucks here too.....37 degrees, but at least the snow from Thanksgiving has melted!....once I get my son down for a nap, it's out to the garage for a spin on the trainer.

Cold and wet for yet another day. Good thing I enjoy riding the trainer. Pop on a few tunes and pedal, pedal, pedal.

Saturday was impossible, just got worse at the day went on. Today, it's cold, but not raining so I went out for a nice 15 miler around the neighborhood. Came back for a cup of hot tea and will go out for another 10 a bit later.
