Oakwood owl counting
pilgrims at the Stryx end gate,
"Whooo passes this night?"

The Cyber Inbox

The first item in my inbox this morning was the Albert Lea Tribune with the headlines:

First major snow to blow in today

"Get your snowblowers tuned up and shovels dusted off. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for today in Albert Lea — and much of central and southern Minnesota — which could blow in as much as 6 inches of snow."    

Oh shit, here we go again. I'd better dig out the wools: Malone pants, Filson double-cruiser, stocking cap, lined leather choppers and the L.L.Bean boots I inherited when my brother died. :-(
I'll check on the blower after I clean the house. Cocoa! I'd better see if we have enough cocoa to carry the peppermint schnapps. It'd be a bitch to get caught without the essentials.

Don't forget to dust off the Colnago! ;)

Gotta change the tires. This will probably be the last winter for the Colnago. I have a Fuji beater to replace it and I'll strip the components off the Colnago and sell the fork and frame. Cheap.
