One of the women whose house we were in thought I had fainted and in he panic she knelt ony glasses, destroying them.. I'm walking with a cane and now I can't see.
So please forgive any typos.

Whoa! Tough trip. Hope you get it all squared away soon!

Oh man, sounds terrible. Time to start traveling with the hammock, a couple of eyehooks, a studfinder, drill, and spackle for afterwards.

Wut. Forget the trainer - 5" of snow in Williamsburg is Armageddon.

You we’re negative too right?

Negative, I was positive.

I think the tech botched the swab. Who knows. Certainly more likely that they had a false negative than if I had a false positive especially with our symptoms.

Glad you guys are doing okay.

They were able to taste a little bit of the dinner I cooked last night :bday:

It was even worth tasting!

Have you given them the test in that TikTok, where the lady took sips of water, vinegar, coffee, and Tabasco (or something along those lines?). :)

Sounds like the trip has really aged you. Heal up ASAP!

Had to cut my fake ride short to put out a couple on-call fires. Sigh. Gonna try some real miles tomorrow as it will be a smidge warmer and I can get one of my partners to cover for 2 hours.

High wind warning all over the area today, predicting 50 mph gusts in my area and 60 mph in other areas where i like to ride. I think I'll take the mtb out and give it a go. Seems a little calmer now than it was last night.

High winds all night and expected to continue throughout the day. We lost power sometime early this morning and itís still not on. No coffee for me. Old dog isnít bothered. Young dog is unsettled, but at least not barking at everything. Cat doesnít give a damnÖas is the nature of cats.

I didn't miss anything. I merely conveyed pertinent information from the 6 On Your Side Storm Team to you, the unappreciative reader.

I just conducted self-surgery and removed a splinter. Can I file an insurance claim and bill several hundred dollars?

I can appreciate the Lemond love, but that's too small for you, no?

Those typically look smaller than a road bike of the same size because the CX fork is taller, and headtube is shorter, so I think it's a 53 that looks like a 51.

A little breezy here, so felt really slow going north and east, then started heading west and felt like superman. Then I saw a brewery I'd never noticed, so now having a flight.

Two hrs on the fake bike and, strangely, it feels real.

A tricky one today. I had two likely choices at row 5, but picked the wrong one.
