We awoke this morning to a small layer of snow. It continued to snow all day and is still snowing yet tonight. We have had about 6 to 8 inches of wet heavy heart attack snow. It is the type of snow good for making snowmen.
With the snow coming down, I worked on the fixed gear in the garage. I changed out the chain and rear cog, put the studded tires on, mounted the lights and put a rack on it.
The tires are directional and I mounted the tire for the fixed side. It has a flip flop hub, but I have never used the coast side. I am going to try it out sometime.
I went for a little ride today...in the truck.
These are some of the gravel roads I ride in the summer. This is Road 4 which in December will become a snowmobile trail.
I snapped the snow photos for the benefit of some that don't get snow.
A snowbike is in my future. These are some of the trails I will be riding.
I had planned on posting this much earlier, but we were out of power for a few hours today. The heavy snow brought down trees and power lines.
So after the power come back on, the DSL decided to take a break. The net was down something like 5 or 6 hours this evening.
These little trees came in naturally after they logged it a few years ago. It doesn't look like it in this picture, but this stand of little Jackpine is about a mile square of some very thick and tough walking when there is no snow. A sane person would not want to attempt walking it on a day like today.
All of these pictures are just a short distance south of our home.
