Wispy Clouds – Monthly Challenge

Well, we’ve been back in Munich for a week now. At first we saw lots of snow, no clouds since the sky was one big grey cloud. Then two days ago it was above freezing and rained, melting and washing away most of the snow. Yay! It hasn’t frozen over since and there was no ice today, so I got brave and rode my bike for the first time in 2019. It was 4°C, cold but bearable for a short ride. Back on my bike after two months, I again realized what a happy feeling it is to get on your bike and pedal, even if it’s just to the post office and around the neighborhood.

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. I have three kids and eight grandchildren - so I'm pretty old. Cycling, photography and walking are my favorite things.

    Nice photos, glad you had a safe trip home.
    Big gray sky here too, and snow, and more snow is predicted for tonight and the weekend.
    Always good to have a ride, right now I’d settle for the P.O. and neighborhood.

    Always a happy feeling when you get on the bike here too, even though it will be 40celsius here on Sunday not 4.

      40°! Yikes! I guess I prefer 4°, but 14° would be even better.

    I love biking for errands and chores, and just floating around my neighborhood. I love longer rides too, but nearby is always a fallback for me when nothing else is on the docket. I often save ‘lists’ of things I could get from a variety of store stops, or other errands as well.

    Love your photo of the road split and perhaps taking the road less traveled!

      I’ll be limiting myself to errands in this weather since getting out of town takes too much time and I’d freeze by the time I got anywhere. Btw I didn’t take either of the roads in the picture but the one with no snow. 🙂
