As the Storm-Of-The-Century-Of-The-Week is bearing down upon us, I figured this recent XKCD comic was very appropriate.
I'd be lying if I said we've never watched the radar hoping for those 'red' spots to head our way. Let's face it, severe weather is pretty cool, just as long as it doesn't do things like destroy your house. Why do you think those storm chaser shows are so popular? In this case though, the snow is fine as long as shoveling it is not a drudgery or your roof collapses.
Yesterday, Lorena and I took advantage of the practically summer-like conditions (43-degrees and sunny!) to take in 2.5 hours of Stark, Wayne, Holmes, and Tuscarawas counties on the roadie bikes.
What little snow there was in places started to melt and made for wet roads and some puddles. All the cyclists around here know what wet roads in Amish country means... I'll spare the details. The only hiccup in the ride was a flat tire at about the furthest point away from the house. It's amazing what a tiny little piece of glass can do.
