Winter non-ride to BRP

Here are some good examples of why it was a good choice not to ride the bike to the Blue Ridge Parkway today!

A Christmas day ice storm coupled with high winds felled a portion of just about every tree in sight. The hills looked like the remnants of an artillery barrage, not that I've ever seen one in person.

NC 221 was in decent shape though.

Happy New Year

Re: Winter non-ride to BRP


(My La Crosse technology remote weather station sitting next to my computer tells me that it is 52.2 degrees at 8:41 pm with wind out of the North at 2.4 mph for a wind chill of 52 and 29% humidity. We only made it to 70 today at 4:53 pm. What really bites is that we're only supposed to make it to 69 for the next three days.)
