WINTER BLAHS

Now I ask ya … does winter get you down like this fella? I am asking for a reason. That is where I am at right now … just trying to hold on until better weather arrives. The problem is the extended forecast (15 days) is for more of the same … cold and some form of precipitation almost everyday. I haven’t ridden my trike for a couple of weeks now and it is looking like it will be even longer until I will be able to again. In short, I am somewhat bummed out. I didn’t have anything prepared to post on this blog today and quite frankly haven’t felt like writing anything. Forcing myself to do so this is what came up … the Winter Blahs. I should not complain however as up until a couple of weeks ago we have had a pretty decent winter here in northeastern Indiana. I have been able to ride nearly everyday up until a couple of weeks ago. I am hoping come March the weather will improve and I can get back out there. That being said, March is traditionally a very unpredictable month. All too often it turns out to be the worst winter weather of the season. It can really get a guy or gal down …

 

Meanwhile I am not getting hardly any exercise which, of course, is not good. And it is hard to find something to keep myself busy at. I have found myself taking more naps than I have before. I am doing my best to …

HANG IN THERE.

How about you? Or are you either a snowbird or one of those who live somewhere where you don’t have to deal with winter and can …

KEEP ON TRIKN’?

Yes, I could bring my trike inside the house and set it up on a trainer to pedal it, but quite frankly, I hate indoor exercise. I used to try walking at the mall early in the mornings during winter time but I ended up walking around outside as I needed fresh air. I could not stand breathing the air inside of the mall.

Well, I know Spring is coming and I just have to deal with things until then. I have done it before and I can do it again. It just seems to get harder as I get older. And there is just nothing I can do about that. I wonder if Dairy Queen is open? Ah, but I would have to wear a stupid face mask just to go there … and that’s if they are even open inside. “They” have made it so I don’t even want to go out … just stay home. At least time does seem to be passing by fairly quickly. I mean it is mid February already. It seems like January just ended.

We had very little snow this winter so I can’t complain about that. The problem is it is staying so cold that what snow we have is not melting and more keeps coming adding to it. I am told that most of the trails have been plowed off but I can’t ride to them from home like I usually do. Besides it is just too cold to venture out. It is still too soon for Spring but I sure hope this does not end up being the case …

I have seen snow in June once several years ago. It was a freak thing and it was only some snow flakes falling … no accumulation. It was too warm for that.

Then there are always those who like winter and want snow. What’s their problem anyway I wonder? Bless their hearts!

Hey, now here is an idea to help pass the time til this winter ends. But by then I probably would not be able to get up much less pass thru the door. It sure sounded good though.

There is picture proof! I think I am going to make it after all! A couple of more weeks and hopefully I will be able to once again …

ENJOY THE RIDE!

A FREE GIFT awaits you!
