    Coffee is good , my attitude for doing work isn't.... Did a 45 minute run ls night, my legs re a bit tired this morning. I need to go for a ride instead of the short bus duty. At least no one shit on the bus yesterday like they did on Wednesday. god damn that reeked, at least the hazmat was contained in their adult diaper and I had nothing to clean up.

    I wonder what short bus adventure awaits today?:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    It's raining heavily and is supposed to continue all day. About 4 AM tomorrow it's to transition to an ice storm, then a bunch of snow.

    I thought I was returning to work on Tuesday, but nope, I guess the flu or something had other ideas.

    Back in the office today. Haven't been here for 3 weeks. I am actually afraid to open my email.

    It was 53freedom units here yesterday and is now dumping rain outside. The snow around here is 99% gone. So I'm guessing any sort of biking is out for a few days. Time to get the hiking boots muddy? How big of a rut do fat bikes create in mud @johnbryanpeters @StiHacka ?

    Good Morning!!

    Nearly 70 degrees out there today....the weather is bipolar and has run out of medication.

    I need to get out to a jobsite and put some teeny white flags in the ground to mark for utilities survey, but it's raining...and, well.....that's a good enough reason not to, right?

    It's hot here in the office. Not sure if they're transitioning into raising orchids in here as well, or....

    Kid has his team's first basketball practice tonight, then their first game tomorrow. This will not end well.

    Good morning.
    The 3 days of training has left me far behind on work, meanwhile it's dumping snow in the mountains and I won't be skiing today. Grumble grumble grumble...

    Good morning, beautiful people! Normally 40 degrees and rain makes for a pretty miserable run, but it felt great this morning considering the recent cold blast we've had. It was so damn dark and foggy though that I was getting nauseous from the headlamp beam through the fog and rain. I got my five miles done though, then pooped when I got home and got an Americano on the way into work. So, it's been a good start to my Friday.

    I am blaming it on old man Mark who came down to NC already sick and then riding for a week in below freezing temps. Sounds about right. :twitch:

    Enjoy the warm weather while you can...

    As wide as the tread, but less deep than, say, a 2.3" tire. Use your judgment. I sometimes iron out skinny ruts with the fattie if conditions are right...

    Thinking of calling it a day after my current con-call finishes in 20 minutes. 70 hours on the timecard this week means they've already had too much of my time unpaid.

    Meh.... Slept like shit despite spending a goodly portion of the day skiing myself silly. Wife has decided not to return as a full time teacher next year and that has been the source of some consternation. We don't need the money, but it sure helps take the edge off. *le sigh* I guess we'll see where it goes from here.

    Holy balls. Monarch got 4" last night. So much for "slight chance of light accumulation". :mad:

    Also; got to watch EMS extract some folks from a minivan that hit a snow plow head on coming down Monarch pass yesterday afternoon. Pretty brutal.

    Is she dropping to part time or not working at all?

    Jessica is applying for a 0.5 FTE music teacher job at the local DPS elementary. Upside: 1.3 miles away. Downside: Neither of our two kids is slated to go there (Yuna is too young--no ECE-3 there anyway), plus child care/child shuffling may be a mess.

    Re: skiing: A-Basin got 7". Currently 1 degree and snowing. Could be decent come Wednesday, my next planned ski day. I'd rather have a few day old snow and clear skies rather than 1 degree, snowing, and 0 visibility.

    For now it seems that the plan is to return next year as a grade level aide. The principal is desperately trying to keep her on as a teacher somewhere, but clearly isn't having any more luck than I am.

    Here.

    Drive in was bad. Highway is slick with black ice, but looks dry as a bone. Couple of cars off into the ditch/barriers... My guess is from the sharp drop in temp as there wasn't a lot of snow felled...

    I'm checking out early today....
