mar 9

We had rain yesterday followed by a light dousing of snow and cold temperatures leading to a nice snow/ice coating on everything this morning.  So it was back to the studded tires.  Biking with studded tires is a lot easier than walking on this stuff.   Temperature was 25 degrees F with calm winds and dissipating fog when I left.  Fog and calm winds go together so it makes for good riding as long as it's not thick fog.   Here's a picture from my drive way.  The sun has moved north substantially in the last month.  It used to rise to the right of that house by my trees (see this post).  We just started daylight savings time so the sun rose at 7:20 am.  It's now about 7:50 am:

The ice coating was pretty.

The birds weren't so noisy today.  They seem to be noisiest about an hour after sunrise.  

Someone left a message for us (I love y'all).  I'll assume it was for all of us.

On the way home, the temperature was 33 F with winds still calm.  A lovely ride.
