Greetings and welcome!

I am finding myself a little annoyed by the weather today. Yesterday I wanted to work in the shop but I passed after a walk to the mailbox. It was about 8 degrees and a howling wind of 20+. I have a torpedo heater in the shop but it isn’t insulated so that would be a cold afternoon. I stayed inside and worked on computers instead.

This morning I was awake early and again itching to go work in the shop. A quick check of the weather ended with a hard pass and a couple of more hours of sleep. It was -13 with a lot of wind and a wind chill of -35. No.

The thing that has me really annoyed is that all of next week we are looking at high temperatures in the mid to upper 30s, with a chance of getting into the 40s mid-week. It sure would be nice if we could average this week’s brutal cold with next week’s too warm temperatures and come out with nice days in the mid-20s.

I will get my wish this weekend when temperatures should be in the mid 20s. I just don’t like the warm stuff to follow.

I do not expect that the trail conditions have changed much in the past two days. Only hard core riders are willing to ride in that kind of cold.

The big event this weekend is the outhouse races at Firelane Bar. That is about 3 miles west of Hwy A on Hwy C at Firelane Rd in the Town of Athelstane.

That is all that I have for today. Have a good weekend and thank you for visiting!
