Apocalypse Eve

Despite it being 24°F and a blustering RealFeel™ of 3°F, I figgerd I better get all the trail time in I can. Transformer blew near the office so servers were down all day. Snow day! I broke out the slEdwin and went out around James A Reed park for a couple hours. Ride yer bike! (while there's still time) .....

Can't help but get my ass out of bed any time a major meteor shower passes. This year was fantastic. Geminids are usually best seen here due to the cold months and low humidity - Leonids are often obscured by hazy summer skies. But last night the temps were mild (40°F) so I suited up and took the mtb for a 10-miler, then plopped down on my back in the center of a corn field for 45 minutes to take it all in. It was a brilliant show, clear skies and I was in good company with the critters. Quit looking down at your phones and other portable networking devices because life is happening ^ up here.
Ride yer bike! (and go see some cool things)
