Weather: Sunny and … What the hell am I doing at my computer?
Well, I suppose it’s time to wrap this thing up. It’s quarter-to-seven on a Sunday morning, and I want to be done with this thing by afternoon, when it is supposed to be sunny […]

24 March, 2006 Weather: Cloudy and 31°F (-1°C).
So much has happened in the past week. We saw the calander end of Winter come and go on Monday. We wrapped up the Minnesota Winter Scooter Commuter project in the media on Tuesday. I was delirious with insomnia on Wednesday, and completely silent on Thursday.
This morning, after […]
22 March, 2006 Weather: Sunny again, snow melting, Spring is in the air.
I slept in this morning. After the last couple of days, I really needed to catch up on my sleep. By the time the Baron and I hit the road, the sun was up over the horizon, and we cast a long shadow on […]
21 March, 2006 Weather: Sunny and just above freezing. Snow is melting.
The Baron and I got an early start this morning. After a sleepless night, I slammed down three cups of strong coffee and we hit the road at five a.m.
We had a date with WCCO-TV, to wrap-up the Minnesota Winter Scooter Commuter story for local […]
20 March, 2006 Weather: Cloudy and un-Springlike, 36°F/ 2°C
It was so nice to get back on the scooter after driving the cage last Thursday and Friday. My knee feels about 90% now and my legs don’t hurt anymore.
The break was good for the Baron as well, I think. He started right up and idled fast, […]
St. Patrick’s Day, 2006 Weather: Mild Winter Conditions, above freezing.
Well, we’re almost there. Monday will be the last day of calendar Winter.
Please notice that I capitalized the word Winter. I have been struggling with that all season long. I’ve seen it done both ways, but I seem to remember being taught in grade […]
16 March, 2006 Weather: Snow all morning, mild afternoon.
Well, I didn’t need a briefing to see that there were six inches of snow on my front steps this morning. Opening the screen door, I stuck a yardstick into the snow, and I knew right away that I would be driving today.
My neighborhood […]
15 March, 2006 Weather: Mild winter conditions, horrible roads.
I would really like to know what Public Works was doing on Monday night, into Tuesday morning. None of the sidestreets that I ride received any attention. These roads still had ridges and ruts of solid ice, frozen from the slush left on the streets overnight. Road conditions […]
13 March, 2006 Weather: Blizzard Conditions, 32°F/0°C Wind Gusting 40mph
If I had it to do all over again, I would have driven the cage this morning. Better yet, maybe I should have just stayed home.
March often brings Minnesota some of it’s most, um… interesting weather of the Winter season. Though […]
10 March, 2006 Weather: Springtime, partly cloudy
It felt so good to ride without the whole freaking spacesuit for a change. I left the rain pants and heated vest at home yesterday, and the Darien jacket kept me warm without electrical assistance. We passed the Red KLR guy on East River Road again, and waved, again… this […]
