Let's see......I have the day off.......it's 30 degrees and windy.......what should I do?
I've got it! How about a bike ride!
The forecast was calling for scattered flurries, so I thought I would go out and look for some of that elusive October snow.
Hey! There's a little bit falling.
Tastes pretty good.
Good thing it doesn't snow in the summer. I'd probably end up with a gullet full of bugs. If I had a gullet, that is.
A bit more falling here, but not enough to stick.
Better sneak in a bike picture before it starts up again.
I'm going to avoid boots for as long as I can this year. I'll just keep piling on the wool socks.
I brought some hot tea along to help warm me up. I didn't really need it. I tend to build up an excess of heat all on my own.
I think the Ogre has had enough picture taking for one day.
I find it very hard to get a good picture of both a bike and a tall tree.
It's probably best to just keep the bike out of it.
I stopped at my favorite rest stop on the way back. The wind was picking up some extra chill coming across the lake so I didn't stay long.
I ended up with 23 miles and most of the feeling remaining in my toes. I think I'm acclimating pretty well.
