FMMWWE (First Major Media Winter Weather Event)

Tonight's hang was shelved, and for good reason. I was down with the call - it was pretty ugly at hang time.

But I had to laugh. KREM, KXLY, KHQ and the SR all piled on the whole "blizzard" business.

My dog was cooped up all day and needed a run, so we braved this epic event and went for a short ride to the park. I'm not sure how we survived. But we did, and now I have a taste for how bad it can get in places like like in Antartica and Prudhoe Bay. Not.

It's all pretty confusing, but the one thing I'm sure of at this point is that my winter riding skills are sick. And I don't mean the good kind of sick. Sick more like the above nighttime iphone pic.

I hear you there! My winter riding skills need to be polished off. It took me a couple fishtails to remember, Aim for the packed snow and not the oatmeal stuff. On my return trip it was better. I was keeping up with cars and beating them off the line at every light.

Power to the pedals! (But only in very smooth pedal strokes.)
