    Who rode today?

    OK, guys and gals -- it was crazy warm in these parts today. Who got out for a ride?

    I stayed on 4 wheels today, as my road is still a hot mess of sand and salt. But, boy, it made me wistful to hear all those bike motors out and about.

    Sad thing, though: In the city where I work in the Hudson Valley, riders were everywhere -- motoring over streets that the city highway department had brined in anticipation of tomorrow's predicted ice and snow. Back to February's reality. <Sighhhh>

    I got to ride a little on Sunday, but it’s freezing rain last night, this morning and this evening. So, it will be a little while before next time.

    Didn't ride... too many pot holes in lower NY. Set the warmest in February since the weather organization began. The temp was 78 degrees, 10 more than previous history.

    Got out on Tuesday and it was great! Did only about 75 miles but it was nice to get back in the saddle again. Gave the C a good wash afterwards and lubed the chain.

    A fresh 2 inches of snow yesterday, and freezing rain today. Yep, it's still February in the Catskills.

    Sighhhhh....

    But the days are definitely getting longer.

    And we in Louisville got another 2" of rain today. Someone translate that to snowfall equivalent? The Ohio River is causing major flood damage here but others along the way have even bigger flood issue than we here. More rain expected tomorrow, so far we are at a solid 6" from this storm. The oly good thing is that it has been steady but not hard at any time but once.
