I Could Have

Nope, I didn't ride to work today.

But . . .

I could have. My side street would have been a challenge, but I've ridden on it when it was worse. I might have tried it if the Billie had been out of garage more of late. And if I'd been a little less lax in keeping my gasoline treated.

Tomorrow I'm off and on my list of things to do is get them both started and the gas treated.

For some reason when I downloaded this photo onto Blogger it got very pixelated. Oh well.

I went the freeway for a change and was rewarded with a nice view of the sunrise.

The view was even better for my walk from the parking lot. It was a nice true 0F/-18C. It almost perfectly calm.

In the evening the moon welcomed me when I came out of the Courthouse and kept me company on my way home.

Look how bright it still is at 5:15pm CST.

  • 0F/-18C for the morning drive
  • 18F/8C and crystal clear for the evening commute.


  1. Nice shot of the moon. Is that the courthouse?

    1. Richard,
      That is the Federal Courthouse. I work in the old Federal Courthouse. It was taken over by the State of Missouri when the Feds moved to the Eagleton Courthouse. It is the largest Federal Courthouse. I was pleased the moon turned out as well as it did.

  2. Didn't ride today but tomorrow will be another story!

    1. And, I think I heard the story. Cold. And an opportunity to make your anticipation even more excruciating, yes?

  3. I saw the same moon yesterday in the blue sky :^)

  4. You do have a pretty view - to and from work.

    Brad finally rode to work again this morning, been a week for him. Luckily the snow has gone now except for where it is piled on the side of the road.

  5. I was off work today, but made it out for a ride. I'm not sure I'm going to ride tomorrow or not. There is lots of melting and the temps are going well down below freezing tonight.
