The past week was a meet the parents holiday.  Brandon and his lady Janae, traveled from Austin, Texas to Fairhaven, MA (which we now call Alaskachusetts), just in time for the second major blizzard to hit the area.  Because there was so much snow from the previous storm, we were running out of places to put new stuff.  Janae was in awe of her man looking like he was working in a coal mine.  Little did she know that this storm dumped a foot of new powder that was no heavier than fairy dust.

A note about my recent postings.

Most of my musings are bike riding and bike touring posts.  Being snow bound allows me to take online courses to help make my writing, photos and videos better and more interesting.  The Daily Post does a weekly photo challenge that suggests a theme for participants.

A Vexing Conundrum.

Got the single speed ready for the winter.
Got the single speed ready for the winter.

Winter weather is slowly creeping into the area.  I was in Atlanta for the Xmas holiday and the weather on Cape Cod was pretty much the same as Atlanta.  Now that I’m home the cold weather has also arrived.

The single speed winter bike and the winter clothing are ready to get me through these next two months.  The only thing that keeps me off the bike is when the MUP is covered with ice and snow.  The town still will not clear the path even though it gets lots of use all winter long.  Private citiezens have done the plowing in the past but are always issued a cease and desist by the Department of Public Works.  The reason.   “It’s the DPW’s job”.  But they won’t do it.  I think that’s what is known as a Vexing Conundrum.
