    I think I'll leave it out.
    Sorry, someone slap me it's been a nutty Monday.
    Like that matters.

    First real snow of the season here today. 29 degrees right now but tomorrow and Wednesday we are for it.
    Major storm predicted here with strong winds.
    I'm a weather freak so I actually enjoy all the variations we get here.

    30 out here in SW PDX right now. Threatening a low of 17 tonight.

    I'm thinking if it keeps up like this I'll get in some pond skating by Wednesday or Thursday.

    Luv dat heater

    I rode saturday but today the car heater was working fine, even with the window down for my four legged friend.
    He figured out quickly it was too f n cold to have his head out the window at freeway speeds. (45mph in the left lane: Portland drivers....).

    Yikes! 14 on the bike this morning. Saw a yellow crotch rocket in Salem. Otherwise it looks like just my co-worker riding in this morning. Plenty of Motorcycle parking available this time of year .

    Been 30 to 42 here, snow one day and rain/mist for most of the others and it seems that I am the only one out.

    Guess they are waiting for the next 55 day to come and play.

    Dallas, TX that is..

    Yeah luckily it's been extremely dry up here. It was 11F this morning. But being so dry out I don't even need to open my visor when I stop at intersections to keep it clear.

    Not quite that cold on this side of the Sierra (Placerville), but icy roads, snow on the ground, me in the cage. No fun!

    My commute is over an hour... My electrics can't keep up.

    Yeah my commute is about 50 min each way. After Monday I had two 14 deg commutes and two 11 deg commutes. I was warm (no electrics here either) but I was also ready to go inside and have a warm cup of coffee . I never thought I'd look forward to our regular 40 degree rainy morning rides...

    Rub some dirt on it, Princess.

    Looked at Gerbings pants at the m/c show today. $199 buys a lot of hot cocoa. Maybe if I had a longer commute, or it was 17 degrees for more than just a week or two a year...
