Another who rode to work?

I know we're probably getting tired of these threads, but what the hey -

I did. Lots of rain coming down when I left the house at 31F. Got 1/2 way to work and holy crap, there's ice on all the trees and power lines. Road surfaces remained good all the way in but geez, what a revelation

Once again we got a nice light dusting of snow that turned to sheets of ice overnight. I'm beginning to hate the color white!

Maybe February will be better. I'll keep a good thought.

Just got in the office after a nice ride. Temps were in the high 30s when I took the girls to school, and in the low 40s but the time I got on the road with the LT.

I didn't "color" the font. Happens automatically when you embed a URL ... you know that.

I am getting ready to spray paint some screw heads though. Then I'll assemble my new custom guitar. Thread w/ pics to follow...

"February better"? I hope so, although I keep reminding myself that it was last Feb. 13th that we had our big ice storm. No power for 2 days, lost several trees... you know the drill.

For the first time in years, I did not ride to work this week and a a week last month. This was my ride.


And this was my workplace


We were testing equipment to track fish in the Grand Canyon. I almost didn't miss the bike.
