okay, I feel better now. The temps are in the 60s and even 70s this week, but daggone - six days of riding sideways or 12mph downhill and it's getting old. Enough already!!

Gotta love Boulder in March. Check out the wind speed graph :P

Now back to your regularly scheduled discussion :)
While you are at it, how about killing the snow too! nmMB1

Those pesky winds. They have been blowing steady here too.While I was out blowing the snow yesterday (the banks are now 7ft high either side of the driveway)I remarked to my son it's a little breezy out here and he said -32c + 30km winds is a little breezy dad, should we wait for the plow to come by and then go for a robust ride. I paused,it was a hard decision. Then we laughed and went back into the house. It is a snowmobilers paradise here in cottage country Ontario,just a little snowy and blowy for the bikes
just ride East onlyColnagoFE

Looks like it's mostly a westerly wind. ANyway...I'll take the nice temps and wind anyday over 3 feet of snow. Choose the wind!

I actually made arrangements for my SO to pick me up in Ft. Lupton. I get out the door and about 5 miles down the road to do some killer speedwork in this crazy west wind we've had - and what happens? In the middle of the afternoon, when it's typically the worst, and for the ONLY time in six days, the freaking wind completely DIES, then switches to north-northeasterly. About 20 minutes after I got home, it started up roaring out of the west again...

AAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!

Night time landing, and the plane was mogul skiing all the way into DIA. Tumbleweeds were blowing across the highway between DIA and I-70, too.

I hate riding in the wind!

doesn't bother me at all, but I feel really bad to be dozing while my wife is freaking out.

My arm still hurts from where she was squeezing it!
Still tryin' to scare people from moving to Boulder, eh? ;-) -nmTig
