another perfect morning for a bike ride.
we headed south of the city to visit the Millarville farmer’s market. the foothills to the west, bumping into the Rockies, are not ugly.
the green is coming. riding along the river valley is awesome this time of year.
another cold snap hit overnight. windchill at the bus stop this morning was -39˚C. It got colder throughout the day. I’m so fracking ready for spring.
the bus out to Tuscany decided to skip a few, so there was close to 100 people huddled in the cold, waiting to get home.
a surprise snowfall overnight and through the day. it was supposed to miss the city, but wound up catching us after all. unfortunately for me, this means the bike will be parked in the garage for the rest of the week, and then I’m on vacation until after new year’s, so I’m likely done riding for the year…
waiting for the morning bus. several scheduled buses in a row didn’t show up, due to weather.
the bmw covered in snow was abandoned a couple of days ago, when the storm first hit.
we explored a bit of 12 Mile Coulee on our bikes this afternoon, finding our way to the pedestrian/wildlife tunnel underneath the Stoney Trail ring road.
a thermal inversion hung over the city, trapping the stink beneath the clouds. the valley stunk like rotting farm gas.
