After a stretch of below-freezing mornings, today felt a bit warmer… albeit WINDY-ER!!! Not much of a sunrise to speak of, but it still felt great to be outside playing along the lakefront. At least until the final surprise… drizzling rain for the final mile!!! Great. Just great.

After a day with too much turkey & “never-enough” pie…
it felt great to be back on my bike this morning to work off some of the “damage” I did yesterday. Yummy… but still.

Cloudy & cold with a brisk breeze off the Lake. Not much of a sunrise but for an instant when it peeked through the clouds. Thankful that the morning miles allow me to eat another piece of pie today… but not thankful for the flat tire I had along the way!

When I left my place, the streets were clear & dry. By the time I made it to the lakefront there were flurries. And by the time I was downtown… a full layer of snow. Guess that’s what the call “lake effect snow”??? Pedal slow. Try not to slide. Try not to freeze.

Kickin’ off Day Two of the HOLIDAY HOME SHOW with a little pre-show bike ride. Not much of a sunrise… just LOTS of clouds and a few flurries. Luckily there was a little glimmer of holiday cheer with some red & green lights in the harbor.

A chilly & cloudy morning. I thought there was good sunrise potential…
but that low-flying big cloud thought otherwise!

Windy & gusty in The Windy City this morning…
with crazy cool waves crashing all around.

I swear there’s a skyline back there somewhere?!!

My morning ride started out dark & breezy. With one large cloud hovering low on the horizon. That cloud seemed to block most of the sunrise color, but a few wisps succeeded higher in the sky. Eventually the sun made it over the cloud and blue skies prevailed to illuminate the Fall colors along the bike path.

A beautiful start to the day with one large cloud moving in…
that eventually overtook the sky before the sun made its sunrise appearance.

Lots of clouds. Lots of wind. Not much sunrise…
but still a great way to kick-off my Saturday morning!
