First Snow Ride of the Season!

Temperatures dropped, and guess who showed up? Old Man Winter visited the Carson City area today! It wasn't overly cold. It was sprinkling rain in town, but turned to snow as we got into the mountains. The trail conditions were sweet!

I'm not sure what such an early snow storm indicates for this coming winter. Anyone have any gut feelings? My gut isn't saying much other than I probably ate too much for dinner. It would be nice to have a wet winter, but really wet winters can be bad for cycling. I have mixed feelings...

I think I'm done with the 80's! The temps, not the decade...

Vegetable garden met its end last night, temperatures dipped below 32 degrees. I harvested a pot of veggies before hand though. Sick of doing yard work anyhow...

GR: 88 and humid. I could have used some cooling today!
But snow? It's all yours my friend.
Is that typical?

P.S. Send me an e-mail tomorrow about the bar and stem. I would be glad to send them out to you if you want.

Snow is a bit early this year. It's typical to see snow at the end of October, but not this early. It was too hot just a couple weeks ago!

Up here in Minnesota, we had record high temps (somewhere in the 80s) and very humid. It's like summer, but that'll change soon.
