We had a record snowfall. Something like two feet in about 24 hours. It started after my rain ride fell short from a flat (see last post). It turned into snow and fell non stop. Monday was a shut down day. Businesses and schools were closed. I don't play by those rules so I attempted to ride in to the shop right in the middle of all this. It didn't work at all. I didn't get very far before I had to head home and dig out the Durango. I drove to work! DAMN!!! 89 days riding in and back home until this storm took it all away.
So now I am at day 2. I think I don't really care. I had been looking for something to get in the way recently but nothing has. I have been enjoying it but the pressure of keeping it going had taking part of the fun out of it.
So I have decided that there are three ways to deal with this. I have not decided on one of them yet but I think I will soon so I can let go and move on:
- I didn't ride so time resets and it is what it is!
- I consider the workday a freebie because most of Vermont took the day off and did nothing because it was a crippling storm. Therefore, my record would still continue unscathed.
- I just stop worrying about it and realize that I have already ridden more this calendar year than I have the last two combined. I have almost 1000 miles in just commuting.
I will render a decision on this shortly and post my answer, as if anyone cares. If you do, by the way, feel free to post a comment.
Next post will be a few pictures of my February century turned metric with a gap. I forgot that I took a few in the first half of the ride.
