    Hey Howard

    I have been sitting in the shop watching it snow for the last 3 hours. I thought of riding today too. Glad I took the Burrolito (my Subaru Forester) instead.

    Here in balmy central Alaska we are clear and blue. A bit cold (high of 40 / low around 20) but the little snow we had earlier is all gone. We can still ride if we are cautious about the occasional icy patch.

    I'm sooooo glad I went on the Greylock ride! The way the weather is heading here in New England, Greylock may have been the last long ride I take until next spring. I'll be mounting the plow frame on the 4x4 this weekend if I can catch a break from the cold rain that's predicted.

    I guess it's time to move the Concours to the front of the garage and dig out all the Gerbings gear for winter riding...
