ooooh snow!

We didn't die! We are just hibernating a little more now that ol' Jack Frost decided to dump a LOAD on Provo.  When we do get out it takes about a 1/2 hour to get the 3 of us properly bundled up.  Mittens, earwarmers, coats, thermals, tights, wool socks, long sleeves, jacket, boots, fleece blanket and lovey blanket must all be assembled and then placed upon each dutiful rider.  Let me tell you, it is a sight to behold. One that unfortunately I do not have a picture of :(.  We are still enjoying our time that we can ride.  Neither of us has taken a spill yet, thankfully. We also have to avoid tons of ice.  No biggy right? Right.  

The greatest thing about riding in the winter is how quiet it is when the snow falls.  It's like standing all alone in a tunnel with dandy lion seeds fluttering in the wind.  It's like a warm blanket full of cotton balls.  It's like...wonderful.  sigh.  I love the snowfall.  It especially makes those noisy cars a little less noisy and threatening.  It's amazing how the snow can make the worries slip away, how it can make the roughest day, not so rough.  It can warm your heart.  Huh, snow warms your heart. 

Hope these warm your heart also!   Happy Holidays! from Bike Nuts!
