Bye bye summer

4th morning in a row with sub-freezing temps.... actually had to put on a long sleeve shirt to go to work lol.. Have to change the fluids and then take the bikes to storage for a long nap Only good thing is that the bugs are all gone and the cool temps are good for shooting/hunting

Many thanks to the Admin for correcting my mistake!

Put the bikes into storage last night after work..... sad to see them in there this early in the year but it is supposed to rain tonight (and freeze) then rain tomorrow (and freeze) and then snow on Monday... It is gonna freeze likely every night now thru Halloween so no chance for a reprieve lol.

I hope everyone in the damn country OUTSIDE of Houston is enjoying the beautiful fall weather...

For the last 4 days, we’ve hit 100 and 101 heat indexes...

“Hopefully” this Sunday the much anticipated cold front comes in, which will drop the temps into the upper 80’s - and yes, we’re happy about that...

Ah you southern boys complaining about temps in the 100s.
You'll never hear me complain when that happens here and it does a few days!

Now if only we could get into the upper 50s.
We've been stuck in a rainy cool thing for 3 weeks.
And it snowed inches in the northern part of the state last week!

Oh global warming!

Snow again last night (sigh).... not much but certainly a portent of things to come! I spoke with another semi-retired oilman last night and he suggested I rent storage in Vegas for my big bike. He ships his with a group of 9 other guys on a bonded carrier who has a storage business there. $1000 gets the bike to the yard and into a unit. Apparently there is monthly rental fee and some insurance requirements but we can fly out of the bush and into Vegas for $200. Couple of days riding to get to Port Aransas and the Pelican Landing bar Beats shoveling....

Cool UMMMM sorry about y'all up north

ahhh , 64 to 84 F for the last two weeks. Really unless the weather is inclement ( maybe a weeks worth of snow all year here on the coast) I will do day rides all year.I am old with a bad heart so I don't do much riding if its less than 40F. But as long as its daylight that's not an issue.

82F

We're still riding the Blue Ridge and Shenandoah , put us on y'alls to do list. Just don't rub it in by wearing short sleeves.

That which does not kill me tends to really piss me off.

We complain because we get 100 heat indexes over 5 month straight (except on days it rains)...

It rained earlier today, which brought the temp down to 91 with 69% humidity...
