Spring Hath Sprung!

Poor Giuseppe here looks as confused as the rest of us. 

Yesterday was the first day of spring. Although it would be tough to tell that by looking out the window.  Waking up this morning to a couple inches of snow on the back deck and then spending my workday clearing said snow off of everything.  Leads me to long for more sunny locales like.... Anywhere else in the USA apparently. While the mid-west and east coast are inundated with hot weather we seem to be getting the last dregs of winter here. Fail.

So I guess I'm off to spin away like a hamster in wheel (Or one of those cool plastic ball things. Which would probably be more fun than the trainer.). Only I'll be on top of my wheels, which will be attached to a trainer. And I'm (At least a little.) less hairy than a hamster. So maybe it's a bad analogy. Meh, never mind.

I'll probably just eat food and drink beer and come up with excuses for my lack of fitness later in the year.

Can you all tell that I'm tired of this weather? I just need a couple days in a row of dry, possibly sunny weather. Where I could go out on a long(ish) bike ride with just leg and arm warmers and maybe a vest. That would be sweet! Let me think about that for a second.... Mmmmm. Me likey.

I know that's not the most earth shaking thing in the world. But it would make me really happy.

Okay. Enough self pity. I'll be more positive and uplifting tomorrow.

Rubber side down,

  1. Mr E, Take a few vaca days and come to Cali, there is no snow down here and the weather is decent enough to get all of your spring training in, in a week ;) Its crazy that you guys have had so much snow up there this year..

  2. Feel your pain - xcept I don't got a choice. Rain er shine, it's "bending crank arms" spinnervals fer me. Think of it this way: When it does all melt away and the sun is out and the birds sing and all the pretty flowers smell nice, you'll have so much anger to take out on those that dare challenge your pent up beer 'n pizza, er energy I mean.

    1. Hahaha! That's very true Martin. I'll be tearing off those crank arms in an effort to keep in contact with the group. ;)
