I've enjoyed the shoveling thing...despite living on a corner lot with lots of sidewalk. Last year we picked up an as-new snowblower from some folks who just bought it, then moved to Florida. Got it for half price.

I'm really enjoying that more than the zen of shoveling

Snow Wovel Zenness

Seems like it's already snowed more this winter than it did all last winter. This is what I use to Zen with the snow. Keeps my back feeling fine too.

I don't have a wovel, just a dumb shovel that is 20 years old. This is first time in several years I have not already escaped to Florida for the winter. But I have been enjoying shoveling the snow. I love to get up early and put my moto pants on and skim all the snow off the walk around our cul de sac and my driveway and my elderly neighbors driveway. It is all in the technique and it is great exercise. But enough is enough already!!

Win!

I had my mom buy a snowblower this spring with electric start. Got it for a song and saves everyone a lot of drama.

When it gets cold and shitty in the Rockies, it's a good time to go to California for a ride. Even my wife agrees, though she prefers to ride horses instead of bikes.

Her last ride in California got caught on video.

(sorry, I don't know the code to imbed the video. Maybe somebody who is smarter can help me!)

That was sure a nice run. Kristi must have been very pleased.
