I’ll keep my swamp, thank you! Otherwise entitled, “you poor New Englanders”

So the missus and I are riding the scoots every day. Today was one of the colder days we’ve had this winter. Not the coldest, just one of the colder.

So far this season, I’ve only put the chaps on once. Otherwise, just doing my normal winter bundle on the torso has been sufficient. Then I read stories of how the north east has been buried in 72 inches of snow over the past 2 weeks. I know a couple of bikers in parts of New England. They’ve had their bikes “winter-ized” for just over 4 months now.

As I’m driving to work this morning, thinking “Wuff! This is chilly,” my brain shuffles over to them. So, I sat a little snugger in the seat, squared my shoulders, took a deep breath and thought “This is for you, my snow-bound buddies.” Suddenly, it didn’t seem nearly as cold as it had just a few moments earlier.

  1. On the plus side, I am getting away from the computer for a little while each day for my daily driveway shoveling exercise. But that’s ok, I will think of you this summer, when it is only 75 or 80 here. 😉
