Report: January 14-27

They say it’s too dangerous to do it in the winter. Or it’s too cold! They ask, aren’t you afraid of falling?

It happened today. A nice dusting of snow last night covered up all the icy spots. I barely touched the first icy patch…

…and down I went.

I fell right off my feet.

I was walking.

No injuries.

There’s no way I could do that without thinking of this - “That is an S.U.V; Humans ride in then because they are slowly losing their ability to walk.” – from Over the Hedge: The Movie.

Trips -

MinusCar: 9
Multi-occupant Auto: 14
Single occupant Auto: 9
Destinations: 58

This is two weeks worth of reporting. I took advantage of the extremely cold weather…and I suppose the need to have a reason to not bike…and scheduled The Wife’s car for some maintenance. Four days in two different shops meant The Black Beast became The Family’s primary auto.

That means lots of car miles, and lots of picking up and dropping off.

My Car Miles: 119
My Bike Miles: 31

Here's what I missed out on. 7 miles, -30 windchill. This guy's a Lunatic.
