Fog\Additude

20140627_084823[1]Pic is from same seat as yesterday. Fog is back. I had plans to ride this morn but looked out the window and bailed. I got wet just standing outside and it was not raining.

I have the intentions to ride tomorrow morning too. I just need to get past this weather and not let it bother me. or I’ll never get out to ride. Waiting till the grass is greener is not the way to live.

So tomorrow I don’t care if its snowing. Im riding. And I need to quit waiting for the weather to get better cuz then Id never ride. New attitude.  Just shut up and ride.

Doing it for real.

NO FOG!

The fog is gone. After 8 full days of it its completely gone. The sun is out. Its like the first day of spring again. Sunny, warm. People are back out.

Spent some extra time in the park this morn. Even walked a little. Im alone in the store all day20140626_085535[1] today so even a little stress relief was inviting.

If this weather holds I might just put an hour in before work tomorrow. Then Saturday too.

My intentions were to ride before work almost every day but here we are on the tail end of June and the weather has not been consistent enough to do so.

Hope fully the Wednesdays off thing will work out and I can again start Long Ride Wednesday again. I had the going a couple of years ago. If I could do that it would be nice. And I need some nice in my life right now.

Today Trek is announcing a new road bike. A very light non aero frame. Sure sounds fast. I dont know the name of it yet but Im sure I will in about an hour. I like it when they release stuff as it gets in. Its easier to manage. You’ll all hear about soon I spose.

No Title

I can see water! No fog!

Was happy to be able to actually see the lake this morn. Fog not as bad today. But still around. Its been quite a day in the store as I was not able to post till 330 this aft.

This morning my printer took a crap so off to Wally World to pick up another crappy one. Since I just paid 45 bucks for ink you would think I could find one that uses the same cartridges. You would think.

Then back to the store to hook this puppy up. Trying to get this contraption to work wireless was a no go. In fact, I knocked out my internet for about 4 hours and could not do any card transactions in the store. I finally got the thing hard wired to my computer so I could at least print checks. What a pain.

Today would normally be my afternoon to ride but employee vacations dashed that as Im here alone today.  But starting next week Im trying to set up Wednesdays off. See how that go’s.

I did get out for a  good hour ride yesterday. That was nice. The fog burned away for my ride but came right back soon after.

So thats about it. No riding for me until Saturday before work. Unless I try a morning before then.

845am

This is day 8 of fog. Here’s how the drive to the store looks every morning. So damp you get wet just walking outside. And this is my riding window time.

I guess the colder than normal lake is to blame. The fog burns off around noon or so but is back before the afternoon is over. People are really starting to complain. I for one am greatly affected by lack of sunlite. And I sure can feel it. I just feel so crappy when this happens. No riding caps it off.

But today I have help in the store and I will be able to get in a nooner in an hour or so. That makes me feel better. The fog is lifted a bit by then too so that makes the riding more pleasant than in the morning. I saw a dude riding before the store opened and he was dressed like it was still March. I just refuse to do that.

Hope fully this weather pattern will change and I will be able to at least see the clouds. Let alone the sun.

I better run to get things done before my ride….
