    The Marquette County Road Commission has the Snow plows out. This is the second one I saw today. It is an impressive site at dawn to see one of these screaming along on the highway throwing snow 30 feet into the air. Texas sounds good.

    I went for a 12 mile single track night ride last night with 9 others from our bike club. It snowed for the whole ride, which was good because if it was rain we would have gotten wet. I was dressed perfectly, my glasses didn't even fog up. I wore shorts, 2 spandex T shirt, flannel shirt and a snowboard helmet with attached headlight. I hope we can do this some more before we get deep snow.

    It snowed again when I went for a night ride Friday but now it is warm. They are predicting 59 tomorrow (Tuesday) and 57 for Wednesday. I can't remember it being this warm in October. About 20 years ago and again about 10 years ago we had a warm snap in November but not the steady warmth we have been having. It would be weird to go deer hunting November 15 in tennis shoes and a flannel shirt, but it could happen.
