Snow is too deep for the bicicletta today. Will be utilizing gaiters for the walk in.

This 'Blizzard' puts a damper on Natalie's plans to fly out this evening, although her flight has yet to be officially cancelled. I, on the otherhand, am still planning to drive out on Friday evening, hoping 24 hours after the snow subsides the roads will be sufficient enough for driving. Nat may be coming with me though as flights may not be leaving until Friday under current conditions.
The commute in today was glorious. I busted out the goggles as commuting while it is snowing is really pretty sore on the face without them. Relatively few cars on the roads so I could ride in the road rather than the bike lane.
My view on most mornings, sans snow. Skinny tires in the snow can be sketchy, but as long as cars don't pull out in front and you don't need to pull any evasive maneuvers, I can get down to work without laying it down. Braking traction is nil with my set-up in this weather, however the only downhill is pretty mellow so I can get the 40 feet or more I need to stop.

Bryan stuck in the snow pack. Really.
Looking out of Gold Hill at Longs Peak. I'll climb that 14,000 foot bitch one of these days.
Riding out of Gold Hill with the foothills rising up to the Divide. Awesome.
Peet's has been brewing some strong ass coffee lately. It has really been wigging me out. And as I scramble to hydrate my brain back to a state where I feel my eyeballs are relaxed rather than twitching from side to side without the aid of any stimuli, I wonder, "What the hell caffiene? Why must I enjoy an excellent roast and the resulting cup of coffee that you so cleverly hide yourself in?"

It's Wednesday. Maybe too early to throw a few back.
Go outside and play. Darkness is no excuse. This is the time when you can use your headlamp. If you live in Couger country, make sure you go with friends and sing carols along the trail though.
The battery pack is another issue which moved blog posting from ultra convenient at home or work any time of the day, to work only. The shrunken window did not bode well for my blog posting.
Wish me luck in the camera finding.

Being that it is Friday, I hope you'll all be tossing a few back in celebration of life.
Eric: Just as you learned to appreciate coffee while in Italy, the English pub scene provides a perfect outlet to deepen your appreciation for beer. I urge you to drop your books and take advantage.

Well, CNN.com, Yahoo News, Cyclingnews.com, Velonews.com, NSMB.com, singletrackworld.com, bikemagic.com and various blogs combined have failed to fill my time enough with their inadequatly frequent updates that I've resorted to blogging to fill my time. In most workplaces you need to be typing to make it look like you're working, and therefore just sitting and thinking won't do. I'd like to do just that, but as mentioned above, it probably wouldn't fly. So welcome to my world. I hope you enjoy reading and I EXPECT heated argument regarding such hot button issue as religion, legal unions between humans, and stem cell research....talk amongst yourselves.
