The December Challenge: A-B-C, It’s As Easy As 1-2-3

I see we are nearing the end of another month and another challenge. I have definitely been entertained by your words and pictures that show your weather conditions. I’ve seen your blue skies, your cloudy skies, your fog, your frost, your rain, your sleet, your light snowfall, and even your heat.

The Last Days of Storm Chaser Greg

It’s been a tough month for Storm Chaser Greg. November was supposed to be the time for him to showcase his storm chasing skills. He should have been reporting on disastrous blizzards, icy roads, freezing rain, blistering winds and backbreaking slush. Instead, he was reduced to exaggerating the danger of warmer than average temperatures, bright … Continue reading "The Last Days of Storm Chaser Greg"

When Opposite Sides of the River Clash, The Ferry is Stuck in Between

Here in the DC/MD/VA area (what we call the DMV) the Potomac River separates VA from DC and MD. On the MD side of the Potomac, the C&O Canal was built in the 1800s and its towpath is a very scenic path that runs along the Potomac for 184 miles from DC to Cumberland MD. … Continue reading "When Opposite Sides of the River Clash, The Ferry is Stuck in Between"

It Could Be Worse–Like If You Lived In East-Central Illinois

[Due to technical difficulties at the Channel 6 Weather Department, there is no video to go with Storm Chaser Greg’s report today. Instead, here is a photo and written transcript of his freaked-out broadcast.] Once again, I just HAD to go out there to see for myself if things were as bad as Storm Chaser … Continue reading "It Could Be Worse–Like If You Lived In East-Central Illinois"

Weather Report – November 13 – 14 – 15 – 16 – 17

I’ll lump these monotonous gloomy days into one report – grey and foggy with temperatures ranging from 3C/37F to 6C/43F, 85% relative humidity. It’s still not so cold that I can’t ride and it’s not raining, so I have been out. Not many pictures of sky or weather as such, but I have pictures which … Continue reading "Weather Report – November 13 – 14 – 15 – 16 – 17"

Something Like Four Pictures and Four Short Videos About Today’s Minnesota Weather

I’m not going to subject you to Storm Chaser Greg’s irritating voice and insane weather hysterics today. No doubt, that guy’s schtick is wearing thin on everybody by now. I ignored the warning signs and went for a bike ride. If I didn’t have such a sturdy bike and such a tough-guy spirit, that could’ve … Continue reading "Something Like Four Pictures and Four Short Videos About Today’s Minnesota Weather"

“Weather” I Should Post About an Alternate Form of Exercise or Not!

I was reminded by another member or two, that I could still post about hiking. I really haven’t had time for all of my hikes…one was 5 days in a row with camping. To prove I haven’t been a total slug I’ll post this one. I hadn’t taken my good camera, so this is a … Continue reading "“Weather” I Should Post About an Alternate Form of Exercise or Not!"

A Gray Sky Makes Everything Else Look Gray Too

It’s true, gray begets gray. After three consecutive days of dark gray skies here in MY Town, EVERYTHING is starting to appear gray to me. At this point, I’m even hallucinating in gray. Nevertheless, I was compelled to go for a bike ride in the grayness again today. But, of course, I had to tune … Continue reading "A Gray Sky Makes Everything Else Look Gray Too"

A City For All Seasons (All of Them Terribly, Terribly Hazardous)

I looked out the window and it seemed much brighter than it should have at 7:00 a.m. this time of year. Thank you Central Standard Time. It also looked pretty nice out there but, as everybody knows, looks can be deceiving. In order to get an official weather statement, I turned the TV on and … Continue reading "A City For All Seasons (All of Them Terribly, Terribly Hazardous)"

From Dangerously Boring to Frighteningly Windy

At the end of yesterday’s post, I hinted at the change in weather that was taking place over the course of my bike ride. I hope the suspense wasn’t too unbearable, but it probably was. After all, I have been called “Cycle365’s Master of Suspense” and “The Alfred Hitchcock of the Cycling World” by lots … Continue reading "From Dangerously Boring to Frighteningly Windy"

Uncooperative Minnesota Weather

I can’t believe it’s already November 5th. Correction: I CAN believe the date. What I meant to say is “I can’t believe it’s already five days into the November Weather Challenge and Storm Chaser Greg has yet to make an appearance. This challenge seems to have been tailor-made for his over-the-top weather reporting. I guess … Continue reading "Uncooperative Minnesota Weather"

EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, WILD ANIMALS WILL SHOW OFF TO CYCLISTS

Before I get to the wildlife photos and videos, I thought it would be appropriate to re-print this article from the Media section of today’s edition of the New York Trying Times. “According to the latest Harris Poll, Czar Greg’s job approval numbers have taken a major upward turn. In fact, it might be the … Continue reading "EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, WILD ANIMALS WILL SHOW OFF TO CYCLISTS"

WEATHER (sic) YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, HERE COMES THE NOVEMBER CHALLENGE

According to the latest Harris Poll, my job approval ratings are dropping faster than President Biden’s. My leadership skills as Czar of the Monthly Challenge are in question. Cycle365 participation rates and readership numbers are plummeting as fast as my popularity. According to the My Pillow guy, my election to this website’s highest post was … Continue reading "WEATHER (sic) YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, HERE COMES THE NOVEMBER CHALLENGE"
