Damn, it's snowing

I still had hope for this year but when I see snow it just brings me down a notch. TFT will probably be the final fling.

I just came in from riding. It's not that bad out.

The snow you're talking about is a few flurries. I won't even think about putting the bike away until snow sticks on the ground for a few days.

I almost went out for a while but while I got my shit together this morning it clouded up. I still might take a short spin around the block but it will be getting dark (and cold) soon so maybe not.

I saw a few flurries, no big deal.

Damn.. it's snowing in Chicago? Looks like I'm missing all the fun... NOT I'm in Denver on business. We finished up a day early, so I spent today in Vail (with a brief pause in Breckenridge) Mmmmmm... mountain ski slopes Snow and winter is so beautiful here (there is almost 10 feet in Vail) that I can force myself to deal Unlike Chicago, where winter is all crappy and grey...

Maks,

Thanks for calling me for this ride..

I did get the bike out for a 10 minute spin. Gassed it up so it doesn't sit around a couple weeks with 1/8 tank.

Then I washed it and cleaned the road grime off the rear tire. My hands still have some of that tar/gunk from the tire on them. Wheels STILL look like shit.

I didn't think I was gonna be out that long, but I ended up just riding around the area for a bit more than an hour. Fun, fun fun, but I was freezing my ass off with like 7 layers of clothes on. You would've been suffering.
