Our ‘understated’ Halloween Decorations  😉

And look, much to Greg’s chagrin (maybe)  WE had SNOW!!

A ton of little pumpkins

Rode past this burning bush with snow



Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    I AM a little chagrined. It’s hard to brag about how bad Minnesota winters are when Illinois gets snow before we do. Worse than that, Oklahoma City and Dallas were colder than Minneapolis this morning. What’s this world coming to?

      Weather guy on TV said the previous Halloween snow was in 1954 — I was 7, but cant say I remember it.
      I do remember the snow cave in your driveway last winter . . . . . Minnesota still wins the Winter Wars.

    Oh good, it is looking like a possibility that you may join the Holidays challenge Rich. Good start here for Halloween. Anyone could start in the challenge on any holiday that arrives ;’-)

      Veterans Day is not far off — seems like holidays will be more plentiful than kids this time of year.

      🙂 I did give some thought to putting up a little Christmas tree in the window.

    Happy Snow Day! First snow of the year is a holiday, right?

    RJ says also plenty of snow in Bloomington-Normal, but it melted fast and turned into a sloppy mess, so he didn’t make it out on his fat bike.

      Im sure the kids at school thought it should be a holiday! Me too, when I was there.

      B-N got more snow than we did I believe, and ours melted quickly too. Someone on the River to Rail ride had a fat bike, I spoke with him briefly, he said its for the snow, but was doing just fine on dry roads.

      If the Wooly Worm forecast is correct, RJ should have some opportunities to ride in the snow.
      Wooly Worms predict a cold winter with periods of snow
      Now who would argue with a Wooly Worm, or a persimmon seed for that matter. 🙂
