Time for a ‘no ride’ day

You may have heard that the East Coast is receiving just a little bit of snow today. I don’t think even my studded tires are going to do the trick. I guess sometimes the ‘bicycle in daily life’ means the bicycle has to stay in the garage for a day.

My collection of recycling and compost. I’m guessing it might still be here tomorrow.

This might be a day that keeps even Storm Chaser Greg indoors. Although I could be wrong about that.

    Yikes! Good luck with that. I hope you treated your bike well when you brought it indoors.

      Yes, the bike is inside and thawing out. I’m sure this makes Tucson look even more attractive.

      I’m flattered! Nothing like a good snowstorm to start the winter.

    The east, and especially the northeast is getting a huge blanket of white i see. I think maybe in Mass somewhere they are expecting 4 (four) 4 — feet! Stay warm in cozy, ride on another day.

      I measured about 18 to 20 inches here, but yes definitely more a little south of us. If the roads are plowed, hope to be out tomorrow.

      It was definitely a very pretty snowfall.

    I was wondering how you were faring . . . . that is a bunch of snow!!

    All dug out by the end of the day.

    Ooooo-weeee. Looks like fun. I rode today in zero inches of snow, but I didn’t get around to writing about it. I’ll probably do that tomorrow. I have a feeling MY Town is going to be having a brown Christmas.

      Well, I hope you get some unexpected snow. A brown Christmas is always a little sad, at least if you live somewhere that’s supposed to have a white Christmas. No offense to any of the warm weather Cycle365ers.

    Looks like a lot of snow! I shiver just thinking about it…but it sure is pretty to look at. Do you shovel, wait for it to melt, or use a snow blower? This is our fifth winter in the house and we haven’t had any deep snow since we’ve moved here. I’d have to just wait for it to melt off my driveway.

      We have someone who comes and plows the driveway, so we just need to shovel the walks, back deck, etc. Waiting for it to melt is probably not an option, since this will probably stick around until April.

    The first big dump of winter was always fun and something to enjoy. The novelty wears off sometime in Feb though. Hope you can get in a safe ride soon.

    • By: BobinVT Posted: December 18, 2020

      Yes indeed. The first major snow always seems so fresh and clean. By February, it’s all just a dirty mess.

    Looks like we’ll both have a white Christmas, I’ll be at the beach though.

      I’ve only ever spent one Christmas at the beach. I have to say, it was a fun experience.
