The calendar says it's too early to ride...


The weather has been so Spring-like in our valley these past couple of weeks. Much too soon for Spring, we usually have at least 12 more inches of snow and the roads are not this clear until mid March. My "other half" - slightly injured by a couple of falls while skiing last week - just could not sit around the house any longer. So, out came the trike and down the road he went! This is so early for a ride! The temps were around 32 degrees, but the sun is so warm already and with the snow magnifying all that sun it feels even warmer.

We sat out on our deck yesterday morning and had our breakfast. It was heaven to be out in that bright sunshine, get some natural vitamin D, and all that crisp clean air.

The forecast for the next 4 days is snow flurries... we'll see about that. They have been wrong most of our Winter and with this Spring-like teaser weather, it will be difficult to welcome back the snow and cold.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Sorry for the belated reply - have limited access to a computer at present. Would love to have you in the Past Portraits Flickr group. Easiest way to join is to go to the PP site and send me a request to join. Otherwise you have to mark me as a Flickr contact, and I in turn mark you so that I can send you an invite. Hope this all makes sense.

Karen, That Tryke Is the COOLEST!

We were teased by a little sunshine and warming temps, then out of no where came lots of snow. I love all the seasons but I am looking forward to the spring.
have a great weekend,
