This sure has been an extremely long winter and I decided I was going to put an end to it once and for all. I watch the weather forecast practically hourly, after all, how else was I supposed to respond when people randomly ask me when it's gonna warm up... I'm not actually a Meteorologist but I'm always happy to give them a free opinion. If we didn't have weather what else would we have to talk about...
I anxiously awaited the day when the temperature would finally spike over 50 degrees, and that was when I planned to get my bike off of my indoor trainer and back on the road. The tricky thing is, once it's off I'm done riding inside so I needed to commit.
According to the extended weather forecast this weekend was going to be "D day"; after all, it's officially spring and mother nature surely wouldn't lie to me, WOULD SHE!?!?
However, I woke up to a gushing down-pour of rain and though it wasn't optimal, I just remembered the old saying "April showers bring May flowers" (and maybe frogs...) and April was only days away so we were right on schedule.
As I dodged the quarter sized raindrops just before dawn I kept reminding myself that at least it wasn't snow, and a little water certainly wasn't going to make me melt. As soon as the sun comes out things would surely dry up and my bike and I could re visit those bike trails we put to rest last fall.
But as the day progressed that crazy mother nature decided to play a trick on me because this is what we were looking at now... SNOW?? Seriously!?!?!
But two could play at this game! I took my bike off my trainer in spite of the snow, and if this snow doesn't go away I'll show mother nature and ride this weekend anyway; that's what gloves are for. Now the question becomes which bike trail will be lucky enough to get me:)
It's true, we can't fool mother nature, even if she pulls a fast one on us, but whatever she dishes out I plan to take:) After all, plans might change, but if you just add an "E" that "plan" becomes "plane", and with that extra set of wings the opportunities are endless.
Have a great weekend!!
