One last ride.

It rained and snowed last night but today it was sunny but rather chilly. Since it was sunny and the roads were dry, something that we haven't had in abondance in the last month, I decided to get in one last bike ride. Dressing up in a mix of x-country skiing stuff and biking stuff, (rather cool to be riding in a short sleeved bike jersey and cycling shorts) off I went. The temperature was about 4 to 5 degrees Celsius (40 F) but what was really a killer was the stiff breeze. The tailwind was OK and really accelerated the ride, but the headwind was another matter entirely, boy was it cold. I still managed to do my 30 km but at a slightly slower pace than normal. I am usually able to do the 30 km in an hour and today it took me 70 minutes... So I guess that this is my last ride of the season unless we get really warm, sunny weather.

Snowflakes keep falling.

My lil' sister Jazz will have a fit when she hears that I saw and felt snowflakes falling tonight when I got home for supper. Not big flakes and not too many of them but enough to be noticed. We have also gotten a frost warning tonight with the temperature falling to minus 2 degrees celcius.
We should hear some interesting comments from her when she gets back from vacation.
Going trick or treat on snowshoes now there's a thought.
