Snow!!!
« on: October 29, 2019, 06:25:05 am »
Oh hell no! It's WAY too early for this. We woke up to an inch or so of that cold wet stuff this morn.  :'(

The dogs liked it at least.

Wow.  Here I am just lamenting having no bike in the best riding weather all year (well, between the occasional rain).

My folks are due West of you in Clinton, IA.  I saw photos of snow from their area this morning.  I kinda snickered a little bit.  Hope it goes away and you get a few more weeks of riding in.

Thanks Bruce.

The forecast isn't looking too good. More snow tonight and 2 to 4 inches tomorrow. Crap! I'm not ready to put the bike away!

Total of 8-12" here in S Denver over the last 3 days. But should clear out this morning when we share more of it with Conrad & friends. Sorry Conrad (kind of), but we're done with it...    ;D

New record low last night, 3 degrees. & new record expected tonight. But it's supposed to be nicer this weekend & next week. Might get to ride some.

I was riding out this morning in a balmy 6 degrees c  (43 f) the  weather was beautiful and sunny, however a cold wind meant that despite good thermal clothing I headed for home at midday ..... my old bones were beginning to complain    ;)

I read on the internet that global warming is going to bring on the next ice age. :o

Snow was in your forecasts but did any of you go to the store for French toast?

Which is why the scientists have never referred to it as "Global Warming".
The press, especially the "we just make **** up" press use the phrase "Global Warming".

Scientists use the phrase "Climate Change" as in some areas it'll get warmer, in some cooler, in others the swings between cold and warm will be more extreme, and in others less extreme.

We know, it's just fun to make fun!  They have FINALLY switched to calling it "climate change."  Of course, their current "oh-so-accurate" stupid phrase is "common sense", as if they had any (common sense people know that criminals don't follow laws).

Well, the globe we live on is warming.  In fact, if I were you Max, I'd be thinking about moving in the next 50 years or so to stay dry or you'll need to be fitting pontoons to that C14 of yours.  With that being said, if the world goes into an ice age instead, then skis would be more appropriate.
