    Went for a short ride to Barneys on Gandy Blvd just to pick up a gallon jug of 10-40 oil for next years oil change and to Cycle Gear to see if they had a HJC RPHA70ST in stock to try on and it turned into a 60 mile ride due to the excellent weather. After taxes the oil was 25.63 out the door which was a lot more than I paid last year but they did have a2018 manual shift gold-wing to check out. Been having close to record high temps in Florida for the last couple weeks and have just harvested the last of my 5 lbs a head cabbage and 11 inch round broccoli and cauliflower which was a record for me and just planted the summer crop of tomatoes and banana peppers and they are taking off like weeds. Feels like we only had a couple weeks of winter and like flicking a light switch went back to summer. I hate to say it but I can only ride on the weekends and sometimes I skip a day if I think it is just too windy!!!

    Think I'll sell the CTX and buy a boat! There is another 2+ inches on the way tonight and tomorrow. So far today we've gotten 3 1/4 " today. Lots of flooding but we're still dry. Although, I do have a fast running river of water in the street out front. I'm still 5 feet above the water and the sump pump still working OT.

    Holy hat, Pony ... you be careful down there, OK? That kinda running water is dangerous.

    And may your sump pump continue to git 'er done.


    Here in the Catskills, at 2,100 feet above sea level, we've got freezing rain today. The tree branches, the yard, my porch, the driveway: All coated with ice. Was gonna go grocery shopping, but that plan has been shelved. Not going anywhere 'til it warms up this afternoon.

    <Sighhhh!> February is just a pain.

    It looks like the rain is over for a couple of days in Louisville. Total rainfall at my house for this storm is just over 10 inches. Went to the grocery this morning and there was gravel and trash everywhere. Our local sewer district is pumping 1.5 mm gallons per minute of water out of the Louisville basin. Our flood walls seem to be holding and all floodgates will be installed before midnight today. Then another rain event starting on Wednesday. I sure hope we don't have drought conditions this summer and so glad the precipitation was all rain and no snow.

    We got 14 inches of snow last night...that puts our season total to over 100 inches. Nearly over though.

    My wife and I are driving down to Hilton Head S.C. for a two week vacation on March 10. When we get back, the Cycle shop will have the "silver bullet" inspected and ready to be picked up from her winter hibernation!!!!

    Hurry spring.

    On Thursday, when I got home from work, the ground was totally bare, and it was 45 degrees.

    Yesterday we got 2 feet of snow. Our plow driver got stuck for 20 minutes in our driveway. The power has been out for 24 hours now. <sigh>

    On the bright side, we saw our first robin of the year this morning! Admittedly, it was scratching for something to eat in a small bare patch of earth laid bare by the exhaust from our house generator, but ....

    I did a ride from my home in the Sierra foothills down to Sacramento and took the Garden Highway which follows the Sacramento River. This is my favorite time of year along the river. The adjacent farmland is green and the leafless oak trees allow for great views of the river as it makes it's way out to San Francisco Bay. We've had some welcome rain and much needed snow in the mountains and a recent storm has just pushed east leaving clear skies with views of our snow-capped mountains. It was a really pretty ride. I was in no hurry and enjoyed myself as I put the bike and myself into cruise mode. My allergies tell me that spring is near and that the mountain snow that makes moto travel impossible (for me anyway) will soon melt from the Sierra roadways and I'll be able to do my favorite rides around Lake Tahoe and the high country. I put a new top case on my bike, a Bestem 929. It's not as jazzy looking as the red one I had, but I needed a bit more room for when Mrs. Rickster and I hit the road together while on our spring tours.
