Thought about biking Sunday.  Look forward to Spring rides but somehow I used common sense for once and decided to not even try it.  These are the snow totals for cities in our neck of the woods.

March 15th. Ides of March.  First outside ride of the Spring.  Looks like I should have played the number 5 in the lottery.  Friday is my ususal 55 mile ride.  The temperature hit 55 degrees and I biked to interstate 55.  I arrived home and looked at my bike computer and......that's right.  I covered the distance in 2 hours and.........55 minutes. 
   On another note, it looks like Hank is going to visit in June.  He is going to help with the support for this years CrossRoads trip  from Champaign to Boston.   I will pick him up in Chicago and be his chauffeur until we get to Champaign.  Look forward to seeing him.

So I was riding my bike today and really enjoying the view.  What a wonderful day for a bike ride.  All of a sudden it began snowing.  Heavy thick snow cascaded from the heavens.  What a beautiful sight.  Oh, by the way, did I mention I was on the stationary bike at the rec center looking out the window.
