Won't do any good to complain

This time tomorrow there may be 8-10 inches if snow on the ground. Not that it's really any worse than it is now. For, you see, we've had ice on the ground for the last 3 days. Neither condition is conducive to much riding, like none at all.

Max is safely covered in the garage beneath the Jayhawk flag. Hasn't moved for almost a month now. Besides the snow and ice, it has just been very cold here. Now I don't mind cold weather generally. Temperatures in the 20's are tolerable for awhile. But we've had a lot of days colder than that recently and the forecast for the next week isn't particularly exciting for riding weather. 

So I remain mostly patient. Mostly. But the patience is wearing  a bit thin. Oh well, it can't last forever. At least Max is in the garage. That yellow Harley is outside and hasn't moved an inch. Wonder what it will look like with 10 inches of snow on it.

I'll keep reminding myself that patience is a virtue. 

Ride On and Carpe Diem, my good friends!


  1. Looks like its going to take a while before you will be able to resurrect your steed. Patience is a virtue, indeed, Not mine I'm afraid.

  2. Jimbo:

    We are getting Arctic air the next few days. Going down to Zero 0°F which is very low for us and we seldom get "dry" cold so we didn't have to scrape our windshield this morning.

    Spring will be here soon enough, just be patient . . .
