I feel personally attacked, and honestly quite offended.

Seriously? We've been bombarded with forecasts of 6" or more for two days. We got virtually nothing but rain.

Floral or plain?

This isn't a question - floral, obviously.

I'm glad that it has (mostly) moved through for me. We got 5-6" on Easter, but it's been and sunny peaking above freezing, since. Should be able to get back on skinny wheels this weekend.

I'm told I am far to critical of my own work. Someone else's doesnt stand a chance.

Depends. Do you want to get beat up?

Exciting day yesterday. My shower head broke off and sprayed water all over one of the walls. Ordered a new one from Ace. About to go pick it up at the local hardware store.

Managed to snag a nice bronzino, which I ate last night, a pompano, which I am going to cook tonight, a few nice chicken breasts and some monk fish filets.

If it was I certainly didn't see anything about it. I look at the 10-day forecast every single day and didn't see anything :foo:

Nope. See above.

Ugh. And to think that I helped you plan a handlebar bag purchase.

To be fair, it's more a potential handlebar purchase...

I've got the bag already :D

Maybe it was originally to be south of you and they didn't sensationalize it like they did down here. Anyway, it went north of us and all we got was nuisance rain and you got our snow.

While you’re all getting snow, down here it turned warm and humid again. The same workout from Wednesday was noticeably sweatier.

datlas 04-17-20 10:02 AM

It was below freezing this morning. I can't ride anyway, too much telemedicine work to do.

There may be some branching of neighboring nerves into the denervated area, but mainly the cut nerves have to die back to the spinal cord in the neck and regrow down to the finger at about 1 mm/day. Problem is when they get to the scar where the nerve sheaths end. Then they will have to find their way to the right place on their own, which isnít always successful.

Well, as luck would have it, the finger wasn't cut all the way off. There is a small piece of original, intact skin.

Doesn't matter. Nerves were severed.

Those are some pricey bags. I have an Ostrich F104 that I got used, for $50. Unwaxed. Maybe that is the difference. Technically not a handlebar bag.

For breakfast, the little lady made a Dutch Baby, and I cooked up some bacon and cut up a fresh pineapple. Cafe Bustelo to wash it down. I think my foot gash might be healed enough for riding. Gonna be a good day!

Currently 55į at 6900' elevation. Much hotter down here at 1200'. Might go swimming later.

Velo Vol 04-17-20 11:22 AM

I'm at 980ish'.

The kitties in this South African national park are pretty stoked about it's closure
