Running around in circles

may be good exercise, but it doesn't let you get a hell of a lot done. Especially on sidelines like this. Which is why not much the last couple of days.

Right now the wind is blowing out of the north behind the cold front that moved through a couple of hours ago. Since they're talking about a possible freeze tonight and a definite tomorrow night I picked everything in the garden that was ready, and I've got the necessary vents around the house covered.

One nice thing about this part of the country is there are lots of times I can ride through the winter; sometimes just a wee bit on the chilly side, but I can. Next couple of nights are not among those times. I could if I had to, but since I don't have to... Coldest I've ridden in was mid-20's, several days when didn't have a choice. And it sucked. At the time I rode a little Honda Rebel 250. I never failed to start, but that little air-cooled engine could not get up to operating temperature, so had to keep the choke on a bit. I made it there and back, but it was fairly awful.

Got some stuff to write about, which I hope to get posted in the next couple of days. I now return you to whatever you were doing.
