If you will

Picture, if you will, a small, fuzzy woodland creature.   It has a cute, small nose and adorable fuzzy ears.

Now picture that woodland creature wrapped in a huge comforter, with only its little nose showing.  Its little nose has frost on it and one tiny icicle dangles off.

That little woodland creature is the cartoon I'd draw of myself right now.

It is TOO DAMN COLD here to do anything.  Like, by the time I got out of work the temperatures were in single digits kind of cold.   I just don't ride in single digit temperatures.   Call it an excuse if you want, but I'm calling it a legitimate reason - I'm not aspiring to Rolex (or even Novice this year), so I'm choosing to stay inside!

It's been three weeks of way too cold.  I've managed to ride through a week of it, then ... yeah.  Not so much.  I think the last time I rode was the 17th, and even then was super cold, though the new thermals helped a lot.

In theory, we're getting warmer weather tonight, and tomorrow should be back to normal winter temperature for the area.    I'll believe it when I see it.   But I am really, really, desperately hoping to see it.


  1. No it's still gonna be cold lieing Larry lies

  2. We haven't been as cold as you but I can't wait for spring/summer!

  3. Ok...I give up. We all need to move to so cal.

  4. Ahhhhhh I'd contribute but my brain is frozen. I think you've ridden more recently than I have--seems cruel to take Cuna's blankets off and he hates cold as much as I do.

  5. The whole point of our horses is enjoyment. You simply wouldn't enjoy riding in single digits. Thus, your decision is very logical. I'm so ready for spring to get here.
