The weather, the gravel, and the girls.


I got the extended forecast for Iowa today. LQQKs like we are going to have weather, whether we like it or not. After the first few snow falls this season I was enjoying the new style of riding, the challenges, the staying warm tricks, among many other changes. BUT!!!! Enough is enough, now I want the "speed" back, the sweat, the shorts, socks, shoes, and jersey rides.


Went out and rode tonight till dark, I live on the north edge of town with offers roads, and gravel, trail, and rolling cemetaries. all close by. My legs were telling me they need more rest then I have been willing to give them, I just wanted to get out and pedal, as always. I pedaled up to ma and pa's for visit. My brother Mark and wife Sheri came up from Florida to live with ma and pa for a spell to help them out. So very sweet of them.

Oh LQQK, the girls (mother and daughter) are enjoying knitting and chocolates. I don't have the patience for knitting but do for chocolates.
Over and out, and thanks for stopping.
Dave

Yeah, I've shoveled so much snow this winter, it feels like I have an extra part-time job.

Almost 60 and sunny here in Seattle. 32 degrees when I left for work this morning. Still a nice bike commute.

Like summer compared to Iowa....

I hear ya. I was looking at bike clothes today at REI and dreaming of warmer days.

Hey, the girls look so cozy and relaxed. Nice pic.

Your weather map made me laugh.

Hey Dave, What can I say, that weather forecast looks, well, Shitty!
I didn't realize just how bad it was until I looked at the picture of the girls and saw the Penguins outside the window, getting serious there!!

Hey! Seriously, did you photoshop the penguins, or are they yard ornaments that are showing through the window?

There is always penquins outside this time of year. I was really surprised the first time I saw them. ..........................................................................................................................................................................................................................Ok I must confess, they are window stickers. ;-)
