Gonna be about 35-45 degrees C and sunny here for the next 10 million years. But global warming, who would believe that!

The good thing about tomorrow's race is that it is a 1km from my place.

We got hammered by snow over the weekend. No riding outside for quite awhile,as the 18-20 inches of snow is going to take some time to melt.

On the plus side ...... hiking my neighborhood hills in knee deep snow has never been more rigorous... and fun. The neighborhood dogs love it too.

Sunny on Saturday, overcast yesterday, sunny today and allegedly sunny tomorrow. So many miles and I'm tired. I don't know how you Southern Cal people put up with this incessantly cheerful weather.

Is this the whining thread? Or the weather thread? I will whine about the weather. We've had thirty inches of snow since the 5th Feb. Another foot is predicted for Feb 10. My life in hell continues. I will not buy a snow blower.

I call shoveling snow building "core strength" during the winter :)

We had a light dusting of snow Friday morning, and a good 2-3 cm this morning. The local radio station is playing Christmas music, saying the weather is more Christmasy than springlike.

Record highs expected in the BC interior today. And I'm not complaining, although what we really need is a period of rain. Not so much snow in the hills this year to fill our lakes. Oh well, makes for great riding.
