Oh Man, Not Another Blizzard!!!
I can't believe it. I just heard that we will be getting hit with another winter storm. The worse of it is to hit after lunch on Thursday, with whiteout and blizzards conditions. They said we are lucky if we get one of these once in three years. Here we are getting our third one in three months, with the last one just a week ago. I'm still having problems getting to my trash cans, as they are behind a rather high snow drift, lol.
The Mountain Shadow Riders, which I am a member, have plans for a New Years Eve day ride. This storm will most likely put the kibosh on that. They traditionally have a ride on New Years day. But this year decided to do it on New Years Eve day, to avoid riding with a hangover. Last year we couldn't participate and they had a beautiful day for a ride. This year we made sure to keep our calendar empty for the day. Well there's always next year.
I do look forward to a new year with great rides already planned, or in the planning stages, with the Mountain Shadow Riders. This last year I enjoyed every single ride I participated in. They are a great group of people whose main goals are to ride safe and have fun with others. We also like to do things for the community. We had a very successful Breast Cancer Awareness ride, that raised just over $5,000 to give to our local Susan G. Koman Foundation and we have adopted a nursing home. We have adopted a part of a highway to take care of. We look for other opportunities as they arise. While this is a group formed for women, we do have men in our group. The ladies are "Members" and the guys & family members are "Support Members." We are a chapter of "Women On Wheels" and there are chapters in just about every state in the United States. I hear about some of the other chapters having a great time riding, too.
I hope everyone got what they wanted for Christmas. I had a great Christmas and will post pictures of some of the neat things in a few days. I hope the weather permits you to get out and ride. :)
