Getting Outdoors

 Welllll...looking like winter is coming in and I think it's here to stay for a few months. We had about 3 to 4 inches of snow when I left the house today, but closer to 6 when I got home. They are predicting 14 to 18 inches for our area.

 Wind??? Yes, on this day a person knew there was wind, especially when you pointed the bike that direction.  The snow pelting the skin. Blowing you here and there. Feeling alive!! Refreshing one might say!!

 I wasn't going to blog this ride up.   There was a time when the very first thing I did in the morning was run through my blog list. As did many others I think.  Not so sure anymore. I might keep at this blog for a while longer.  It is still fun for me, but time will tell. 

 I lowered my tire pressure from summer time pressure to winter. I am messing with the pressures all the time, but today I went with 8lbs, but I could have easily gone down to 5.  I don't know why I didn't.  I told myself right away I should lower...but I didn't.  Just kept rolling along.  made it interesting anyhow.

Even though the storm was bearing down on us, it was still great to be out.

I shot a GoPro vid today.  Because of the heavy snow, I had it in the waterproof case.  Please excuse the poor audio, some shake and also the rattling noises.  Watch it if dare...or would like.

As always, lets get outdoors and have some fun!!
(not everyday we can enjoy weather like this)

Thanks for reading/watching and any comments you may have.
