Wednesday tennis night clouds… they held off and I won my USTA match 6-2, 6-2
A hot night for tennis. 4 sets over almost 3 hours.
Tennis is rained out…. indoors we go!
Rain, rain go away, I am trying to play tennis…. at least we have indoor courts tonight.
Foggy morning, Photo A Day!
1:1 Macro of icicle.
Icicle drops. Day 2 of snow day and much the same as yesterday. The sun came out and snow poured off my metal roof….
I took the Land Cruiser to take the trash out, Moe and the rest of the cats appreciated the new path.
More sledding till the tube popped!
Snow day at the cabin.
The dog loved it!
Moe the cat, not-so-much
time to play
the float tubes worked well when the dog didn’t bite a hole in it…. ps one tube down!
for the first time in year I got to XC ski, the snow/ski combo didn’t work well, after I got my track, I wasn’t get as much glide as I wanted, so I gave up and mountain biked a while.
A frosty morning.
Up early for the 8:30am start. I slept great in the Flippac, despite the cold and snow all night.
Frame grab from the GoPro on my body from one of my many falls.
Carry the bike.
My race was just OK< it was fun, but since I have not been racing, I didn’t have an aggressive start and ended up behind folks who couldn’t ride stuff I could.
I finally settled into my on the bike, off the bike, carry the bike, push the bike, repeat. There was so much snow and we were the first to race, I was pulled after only 1 lap or almost 30 minutes. Finished 17th.
As the day went on, a race groove was formed and then became a mud track.
The moment you regret making your racing kit white!
Save the bike!
I am not sure what was worse? Deep snow or mud….
If you fall, at least make a snow angle a heckler yelled and she did it!
Nobody ever said I was smart. The weekend cyclocross racing was in Hendersonville, about 3.5 hours from home, and my race was at 8:30, so I left after work into the worst of the snow storm, and the state decided not to salt for….
But the finish line that night was why I wanted to come, but this was more snow than I was planning for. Over 12 inches!
