Ah to be young and dumb again. i remember riding my 350 Kawasaki into November and even to my girl friends X mas party one year. Rode that thing into the ground and when it was no longer street worthy i stripped it down and made a dirt bike out of her. That'd get some laughs. Ah good times. :D
Well, at the time it was what I had to do. But it sure helped suck my previously deep love of motorcycles from my frozen hands. But I kept it upright all the time on the ice!

What a release. But for a couple of times wondering what the hell i was doing riding in February it was all good. It does make me wonder though. 64 degrees in February makes me wonder what this summer will bring.

To cold to ride...........To hot to ride.

Don't like to think about it.

Been busy and away from the board, and found I had a few PM’s making sure I was okay. My board life will be spotty for a while, having company around the Memorial Day holiday, and lots of things going on. I’ve NOT been on, and I have nearly 700 accounts that have been made that I’m getting ready to delete. I was worried it was going to be a thousand.

Did have some pretty severe weather, I guess it was last week. Tornado moved through to the south, and I was worried but it did stay well to the south. No damage from the storm, but it was a doozy.

I had noticed you'd been away for awhile and it's good to see you're back. Hopefully, the storms you've had haven't impacted you.

Nah, just one night. Nothing really bad here, but I was watching Ryan Hall Y’all on YouTube - a storm chasing series, and they had a pretty big one - Cat 3 or so, on the ground and moving, twenty miles or so south of us, went through I-65, and we were in the tornado warning, in the northeast corner, and I was certainly concerned, but the tornado instead went due east and caused a fair amount of damage. One story that hit the area news was some people that were on the road as the storm was bearing down on them went to a Walmart to shelter, and they had employees refusing to allow people in, and it caused a ruckus after the fact. The local management wouldn’t say a word, and corporate said they did not have such a policy, and wouldn’t confirm or deny that anyone had been turned away in this case. Fucking corporations. CYA.

But really good things are happening these days, with plans for more, so things are hopping. I’ll probably be working several hours a day next month and early July getting ready for our early August primary, too.

There is also a long series of books I’ve been reading when I can, and I’ll still be on them for a while too.

Oh, no shit. The radar is so good now, they usually know when there's a real tornado out there. I've been watching Ryan Hall on YouTube live streams when there's severe weather, even when it's nowhere near our state!

But I've always been captivated with the weather, since I was little.

I don't have the types of weather you have but I do check The Weather Channel app about twice a day mainly to see what the temperature is. When we have a possibility of rain, I'm checking it to see when the rain is scheduled to start or to view the weather radar to see how far out a storm is.

We had a big rain storm in San Diego back in January which caused sever flooding in several sections of the city. I was checking the weather app to see when the rain would let up. I was on Naval Base San Diego then and when I was able to get out but because of flooding in the area, a lot of road were closed and I was detoured down other roads. I was using the Waze app and even then what is normally a 12 minute drive home took just over an hour.
