Almost 50 in N. Raleigh now. Sunny and calm. Ripe for someone to go grab this.

Wasn't me. I've been at my little place at the river with my wife and dog.
She likes to swim. Don't matter how cold the water is.

Yeah, I thought it was you heading for the tag. South of Strickland around 7:30 or so. Apparently not.

I ran down Creedmoor to 540, had to meet someone at Brier Creek. Then ended up coming back home later in the evening back up Norwood. Stayed out later than I had planned, rode home in the dark with a dark smoke shield....always interesting!

But it's not unusual to see me on Six Forks. I'll be the big fat guy with the silver helmet!


*And, there goes the short window for decent riding weather. We're about to get hammered with precip again. Frozen this time looks like too.

Where do I apply for a refund for all the money I've spent on "global warming"?

ah but now they say global warming can lead to more extremes in our weather regardless of the polar ice caps melting...and BTW its no longer global warming...its climate change...
So that means more extreme cold winters and extreme heat in summer...get with it...

i do believe we are seeing more extreme weather and it seems to be getting worse...for why that is...well I'm not totally convinced that global warming ...if ir is happening ...is anything humans can control or somehow lessen its severity by going green...the only green i see is that which is escaping my wallet....
