I have times when I can appreciate the northern winters I grew up in. At least you know what you're getting :D

My last ride was just before Thanksgiving and it was 27F. It warmed all the way up to -10F here today! Only a couple more months before I can get the bike out if I'm lucky.....

Usually, I'm never off the bike for more than a couple of weeks during winter. I think it gonna be about a month now and tommorow I heard it could be -18°F.

When do we get to send the Polar Vortex back to Siberia?

Checklist:
Off work today? Retired
Roads clear today? They sure are
Temperature OK? its not below zero so good to go.
Bike start? No way without heated storage. The starter can just barely crank the engine at 5F with that thick 20W40 in it. No way it cranks well enough to fire.

Conclusion? Maybe tomorrow if the battery recovers and the crankcase warms a bit.

So after a high of 62 today- High of 21 & another snow event for our area tomorrow. Looks like the main threat is towards the coast, but it's gonna be close enough to RVA for our VDOT guys to slather another layer of s&% all over the place lol...

I've managed to get in about 1 ride/ month or so all winter.. better than nothing. I'm SURE we are on the downhill slope towards Spring... right? RIGHT?

Took a short 60 mile ride Sunday. It was 55 degrees and breezy. Today it is 17.

Glad I live where I can get a short ride in a few times during the winter.

This winter has been brutal! Coldest and snowiest I can remember. Right now it is - 18°C mid day and not including wind chill! The snow piling up at the sides of my laneway are at least 4-5 ft high. I'm sick of winter!
