After 2020 got underway, my whinging hasn't stopped. Not going to let a little winter disturb my momentum.

Madrid
I live in spain these days and this greeted me this morning. This is one of the main drags through downtown Madrid, as no one here can handle snow they did the sensible thing and padestrianised the city for the day

Itīs 10 degrees F tomorrow which is unusal in these parts

Most of the Madrid is vespa heaven, so this make me appreciate it

Stay safe everyone

Lol. My guy came out with me for a bit today, around freezing. Was on point looking for a rabbit to chase (he does launch after them!)

So you photo got me wondering about mouse species in Australia and my mind took me to an image of little marsupials hopping around like kangaroos. I've clearly been inside too much.

Guess who rode yesterday ...

Go ahead; guess.

That's right. It was me!

So, we've had no precipitation for almost a week. Temps during the day have been just above freezing and the roads were heavily salted.

I was in the garage and started both bikes. We had just finished a late lunch, my son was in his room and my wife was in our room relaxing. Suddenly, a great idea came to me.

We have a 100' driveway that was still covered in ice, but manageable. It was still light out and the main roads have been fine.

I only went about 20 miles, but around town that was a good hour ride. Good thing, too, because I didn't dress for any longer.

Still, it was good getting out again. Aaaand because of the wind chill it was good getting back home.

You are a brave soul. Despite snow on the ground, it has been clear here long enough that the roads are reasonably high and dry (Due to Chemicals).
I still maintain there are to many hidden patches of ice.

Be safe,
