Finally had a great day yesterday with lots of sun and temps in the high 50s (F), this meant getting out of the office and onto my bike for a nice 40 mile ride. Only problem is that I have been sick and dealing with poor weather conditions resulting in no serious rides since December. I ended the ride dehydrated with leg cramps. Still it was a great day and my time was much better spent than staying in the office:)

Congrats! Leg cramps on a non-race day means you were having too much fun. Still dry here (the end of the world must be near).

Forty degrees! Got a ride in with only a few patches of snow to cross. Life is good.

Oh my gosh.

The forecast for Melbourne today is 34C. That's a mind-boggling difference.

It is snowing again. Where I live, annual year to date snowfall is 9 inches. We are now at 30.7 inches. And it is snowing again. My life in hell continues.

Has been 23 degress at night lately, quite annoying in that it takes a while to get to sleep, and knowing me who is somebody who be out like a light when I sleep, I have been having some trouble waking up early to go for my morning ride. I get 7 hours sleep and it feels like I have had four hours sleep. Once I actually force myself out of bed then it is not so bad.

Fear not as hell is not getting colder

Is Hell Exothermic or Endothermic?

"First, We postulate that if souls exist, then they must have some mass. If they do, then a mole of souls can also have a mass. So, at what rate are souls moving into hell and at what rate are souls leaving? I think we can safely assume that once a soul gets to hell, it will not leave.

Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for souls entering hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, then you will go to hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all people and souls go to hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in hell to increase exponentially.

Now, we look at the rate of change in volume in hell. Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in hell to stay the same, the ratio of the mass of souls and volume needs to stay constant. Two options exist:

1. If hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter hell, then the temperature and pressure in hell will increase until all hell breaks loose.
2. If hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until hell freezes over.

So which is it? If we accept the quote given to me by Theresa Manyan during Freshman year, "that it will be a cold night in hell before I sleep with you" and take into account the fact that I still have NOT succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then Option 2 cannot be true...Thus, hell is exothermic."

Big snow predicted in the North and East again today and tomorrow. . . . :). I used to fret about it ...... but this year I've appreciated the snow and winter for it's beauty as the season doesn't last too long here. The snow melts fairly quickly in Ohio so I've been able to ride outside enough to keep me from cabin fever.

Weather here is crappy. Wintery rain/snow mix. Either on the trainer or on the skate skis this weekend.

-15C without windchill. Still on the trainer, but competing in the Winterlude Triathlon tomorrow. I am doing the skate leg along the Rideau Canal (which is the longest ice rink in the world at 8km long). The other legs of the triathlon are a 5km run and cross-country skiing. Should be fun!

I can barely skate for 1m let alone 8km. In fact I can barely get away from the fence.

I fail at life.

Now that sounds like fun.

It has been touching 40F where I am. I managed to get a ride in for each of the first four days in Feb. That is a little unusual.
