Snow and ice

Alas, the forecast for the Amenia NY area this past Sunday had snow, albeit .2", until 11AM -- alternating with rain. That alone wouldn't have scared me off completely, since we would only have reached somewhere on Main St. in Millerton by 11 AM with the climb up Mt. Washington not until after 12pm, but the wind chill of 31F with 10-12 mph wind raised the possibility of ice in shaded areas at least. That's just too much, so I stayed home and did some spinning on my trainer while watching part of Mel Brooks' incredibly funny "Blazing Saddles". Eventually, my daughter Hannah came home and I had to stop the movie (it's rated R) but I got a good hour of spinning in overall.
