Today I rode in the worst fog I have ever seen in my life. It snowed 7 inches last Friday and today it was like 60 degrees for the whole day!!! The snow was melting like crazy and it was so foggy you could barely see 30 feet in front of you. So I and a friend did a ride on the bike paths around West Lafayette to avoid getting smashed by a car. It was fun. We slammed through slushy piles of snow on our road bikes and rode the Happy hollow climb 2 times. I think all of the snow melted too which is really too bad I was having fun sledding and skiing. It looks like it is gonna get cold again soon too. Ahh midwest weather is pretty crazy but at least it makes you a really tough bike rider to train in the cold, rain, wind, snow and sleet.
