Speedy Gonzales, Yup, That's Me

For the first time in about 3 weeks I actually made it to work and back home within my normal time.

The snow was pretty much gone, this morning, but I knew it was supposed to snow in the afternoon. So, I aired the tires on the pink bike up to 50 psi, and took off. Thirty three minutes later, and I was at the lab.

Ten minutes before I left to come home, I looked outside and saw the snow coming down sideways. It was beginning to stick on the road, but traction was still good. I left the higher air pressure in the tires and hauled butt for the house.

Forty six minutes of headwind, wet snow and little to no visibility later, I was back at the house.

Every time I write one of these, "it's so snowy" entries, I think of Jill Up In Alaska. She makes me feel like a sissy to even mention the weather here in Denver!

I can make you feel less like a sissy. it's 'sposed to be 74 degrees today. And this is winter, thus I'm dutifully wearing my long sleeved shirts.
