Te Deum

This radar view is most welcome after missing the ice storm.  The same storm had given Colorado Springs, our son and his family’s home, seven to eight inches of snow.

I had prepared the generator for possible service.

Ready and waiting.

Ready and waiting.

But God was indeed merciful and we just got sleet for the most part.


I took a walk around the neighborhood this afternoon and found a few bushes where the ice was 1/8″ inch at the worst.

All this should be melting off by the weekend, but I will not be riding in it before then. Unlike Jim, I do not have snow tires on the Steed.

Stay happy,

A perspective on life and cycling in the Ozarks. I started serious cycling in 2008, after seeing my wife be on the bike for a few years. We have biked many places and hope to continue. I am no where near being a real good cyclist, but I have fun trying to improve. Who am I kidding? Me? Improve??

    Riding the ice on studs is a blast! But actually, I didn’t feel like mounting the studs last night so I just ran in instead. 🙂
