I almost feel bad to be reveling in our nice weather with what's going on in other parts. But after our mini ice age of last week, I'm good with it.
We're hitting the balmy high 40's with no new snow in the forecast for a while. I woke Bella from her slumber yesterday, and she was practically giddy to get out. Parts of the route to school were softly snowy like a Sochi slope style course, but we barreled on through.
And I knew Bella would be glad to be hanging out at the bar with her bike buds.
I'm not sure, but after checking them out, I think these are all man bikes. You can kinda tell. Men are more likely to have *ahem* stuff hanging. See? The little seat bags? Just an observation...
So yep, we'll take advantage while we can. The school district sent out an e-mail warning us that they've already used up five of the six snow days they baked into the schedule. If they go beyond six, they'll need to take measures to make up the lost time.
Last time that happened, they tacked on 10 minutes to each day for the last couple months of the year. I doubt it made much of a difference, but they got in the all-important "contact time".
I hope you all are staying warm and safe! Keep fighting the good fight!
