First of the Season
wood burner a novelty (as it is in early fall) but a necessity to keep this old uninsulated house warm, and when traveling by bike you really have to consider things--dress, route, distance--before leaving the front door. None-the-less, I still find it beautiful and invigorating at first, unlike the harsh temperatures and heavy snows that often accompany January and February, which can just seem barren and bleak. I have to run some errands today and am looking forward to my first snowy ride of the season.
Nice photo and I know how you feel. I am less than 50 km from Allentown and we have had about 10 minutes of very light flurries today No snow on the ground.
Keep the shiny side up.
