Cold is the reason I haven't been posting recently. At first we just had a temperature dip down to more normal temps for January into the single digits and low teens. I was still making it out to the barn but not riding a ton since staying warm while taking up is tough for me. 

Then I went and invested in some warmer gloves and figured out warmer clothes and the bottom fell out.

Yeah, it feels about 50* below zero right now. That's not only way too cold to spend time outside, unless you absolutely have to, the road conditions are also awful with lots of black ice. Even worse, we got dumped on with snow on Monday and still aren't fully dug out.

Many businesses are closed as well as schools. I worked from home Monday because of the snow storm and then worked from home again today because of the cold. Tomorrow is going to be even worse since it's continuing to drop overnight so I'll be working from home again. 

Thursday the high is supposed to be a much more reasonable -2* and then it's swinging right back up and we're supposed to have 39 and 38 over the weekend. Of course we're also getting precipitation those days so I still don't know if I'll make it out to the barn but maybe I can grab a couple minutes between the cold and the snow and make it out.

In the meantime I'll just be over here surviving, watching Olivia Towers vlogs, and dreaming of when I can ride again.

With my current decision to move I didn't have to think that long to decide which barn I would move to if I could. The barn I'm movi...
