Riding Interruption Due to Snow
A fresh snowfall overnight -- just four or five inches but enough for me to opt out of riding today. I've ridden in this kind of situation before but only to prove I could or to test out my winter tires when I bought them. With nothing to prove to myself the angels of my better nature reminded me of how greatly the speed differential is between four-wheeled vehicles and two-wheeled vehicles in snow. Seems like every SUV owner feels they can drive even faster in snow because they have four-wheel drive. And on a motorcycle or scooter, well, you know how slow you have to go in snow if you've tried it.
So I'll stay home and admire the landscape.
And walk Junior. He and I did a trip to the park so he could tear around in the snow, seek out other dogs to play with, and try not to lose the ball in the snow. Succeeded in every objective.
All that's left now is to lie on the couch and get fat...
