I just rode to work...good time to practice my 'counter-steering'....

It felt like the scoot was leaning to one side and I was leaning to the other to balance. It all got a bit squirrelly over some metal manhole covers too.

Be careful guys. Merry Christmas.

Listen, big boy
Now that you got me made
Goodness, but I'm afraid
Something gonna happen to you
Listen big boy
You gotta be hooked and how
I would die if I should lose you now
Button up your overcoat
When the wind is free
Oh, take good care of yourself
You belong to me
Eat an apple every day
Get to bed by three
Oh, take good care of yourself
You belong to me
Be careful crossing streets ooh-ooh
Cut out sweets ooh-ooh
Lay off meat ooh-ooh
You'll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum
Wear your flannel underwear
When you climb a tree
Oh, take good care of yourself
You belong to me
Button up your overcoat
When the wind is free
Oh, take good care of yourself
You belong to me
When you sass a traffic cop
Use diplomacy
Just take good care of yourself
You belong to me
Beware of frozen funds
Stocks and bonds ooh-ooh
You'll get a pain and ruin your bankroll
Keep the spoon out of your cup
When you're drinking tea
Oh, take good care of yourself
You belong to me
Don't sit on hornets tails ooh-ooh
Or on nails ooh-ooh
Or third rails ooh-ooh
You'll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum
Keep away from bootleg hooch
When you're on a spree
Oh, take good care of yourself
You belong to me

You Brits might take some pleasure in knowing, once you've gotten rid of the storm, we get it.

Happy Holidays to the UK.

Cheers.

Depends where you are in the world! Our weather is largely governed by the North Atlantic jet stream, which flows from west to east, so we usually get the same crap weather the US has had, about a week later....

Wow. Just rode home. Much worse conditions than my 9.30am ride to work. Heavy rain, wind around 29mph, gusting to 50mph.

Made for some interesting bridge-crossing over the M4 on the way...

Still, home now, with a steaming mug of hot chocolate and a piece of cake. Yum!

Be safe, all y'all.

Bit wet n' wild last night, bringing down part of our fence. I'm sure the landlord will deal with it in his usual timely and efficient manner

One unexpected flooded patch under a railway bridge on my way in to work, hopefully not too many trees in the road when I go down to my mum's later. Yikes.

We were headed down to my Aunt and Uncle's in a little village near Dorking for Christmas tomorrow.

Until a tree smashed their power lines down last night, killing their electric and their heating.

So now I have 20 family members descending on me tomorrow instead of down in the country! And I'm at work until 10pm tonight.

How fun!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Noting that large swathes of the US and Canada are in the same boat, with large populations without power over Christmas due to ice storms.

I just hope everyone manages to stay warm, dry, fed and watered...

Actually I've just driven a Kia Rio to a festive gathering in conditions that could be described as challenging ie not a lot of tarmac on view and heavy drifting snow.

Did I take the 4 x 4 option ?

Does the Pope live in the woods ?

Happy Christmas everyone.

Birreh !

it's dumping down snow here in newfoundland - hovering just below the freezing mark so we're very lucky that it hasn't turned to freezing rain. at the moment it's big fat flakes that turn into a deep icy slush on the road. Birreh has just driven us 20 miles down the highway and back for supper - by the time we got to our exit we were driving through virgin snow very pretty but a tad unnerving. safely tucked up now watching it coat the fir trees in the back yard

Sorry about your weather sudden shift. We are experiencing the same thing here. I often tell myself that the wind makes me a better rider. Or so I think! But the ice is unmanagelable.
