38 degrees of perspective

Today's high was 38 degrees, which under normal conditions would be really freakin cold but since it's the first day above freezing in about a week or so it felt like mid July... well at least mid April. With all the holidays lately I haven't been on the bike as much as I would like but figured today would be a good day to get out.


Despite all the white stuff hanging around it was actually a really beautiful day out.


Trails were in really good shape for the most part, few wet/slippery sections but far better than the residential streets are fairing right now.


Okay, I said it was warmer but it wasn't quite warm enough to play in the water.


Had no idea the guys from Korn were dabbling in Real Estate..


Not really something you ever want to see, especially if it's there for you. Not sure what the deal was but didn't see any flames or smoke so I'm guessing some kind of medical emergency.

New Year's is already almost upon us so I'd have to say this was the last ride of 2012, not a bad year really but definitely looking forward to many more in 2013.

These are new... might not know where I'm going but at least I'll know where I'm at and what route I'm taking to get there now.



Went for a little ride Saturday... it was freakin cold.


Found my way to the Apothecary dungeon... and Crescent Moon Coffee.



A spot of coffee hit the spot, lifted spirits and helped to thaw me out. Saw the first flurries of the year while out riding, none were in the forecast but that's Nebraska weather for ya. Snows coming tonight, if the world ends on Friday it kind of sucks that we have to deal with snow on the last week here. On the bright side though the hot temps should melt whatever remains of the snow... always look for the silver lining.

Here comes winter... temporarily.

I suppose it had to happen eventually, the cold is here but seems like only for the next couple of days and then back into the 50s. Decided to venture out into the cold this morning for a little spin, didn't really have a destination in mind but ended up in Wilderness after wandering for a bit.



Arena is coming along.


As is the new Bison Trail bridge.


Use caution when ascending the stairway to heaven...


Wilderness Park was great as usual, there were actually quite a few people out and about in the park today.



Had my own Stand By Me moment and just made it before the train... actually it wasn't eve close, had to wait a good minute for the train to get close enough to snap the pics. Debating a ride tomorrow morning, winds are supposed to be whipping around 20 mph already at 8 making the feels like a balmy 15... the warm comfy bed might win this round.
