What happens.......

when all the snow from an entire winter melts in just a few days? You get flooding! Ah well, all the snow is gone now so I suspect the high water will only last a few days. It's all good!

I'm thinking that I'll take the Colnago out for awhile this afternoon. It's 29 F right now but is supposed to get up into the mid 40s today. That doesn't sound too bad.

Jackal had a "professional fit" done for him on his Cannondale Six-13 yesterday. Clay Bertram (Dirtram) was down from LaCrosse and did the fitting at Bike Tech in Cedar Falls. Carl said that they made quite a few "small" changes that he feels will make a "big" difference. I'm interested in seeing the results.

I spent most of the day yesterday up in Readlyn rewiring my middle son's garage. He had an old 2 circuit fuse box, one outlet, and two overhead lamps when we started and a new 100 amp panel, 14 outlets, and six overhead lamps when we finished. We need to wire for an air compressor and a welder before he starts putting up sheet rock to finish off the inside of his garage. FYI.... He's a car nut.

That's it for now.

Ride safe.

Peace out, yo!

Readlyn......You were 10 minutes from my house. If you are on Raymond road go north. Then you'll hit c33. Keep going north & you will go around a series of curves and the it will curve you west. You will then hit Quail. That's my tan house on the corner of Quail and 180th st.

Honk 17 times when you go or just stop on in and chat.

Maybe I will get one of those professional fittings someday when I deserve one.

Sounds like you guys are ready to start building some frames out of that great sounding garage. We just bought a small townhouse in the outskirts of chicago and I can't wait to not have to degrease chains on the white tile floor in the apartment.

Car "nut"? Are you serious? I think that you meant to say "infatuation".

hmmmm, flooding and wiring- sounds like a good time! Always stand in a puddle of water when working with the main panel!

Are you guys still having warm temps? If so I'm jealous!
