Fat Tires

We had our third weekend of snow today and I thought it was brave (or stupid) to go out. Then I remembered where I lived.
A tip of the hat, you die hards.
Note the dead car in the driveway to the left.

This photo screams, "Madison, WI"

I hope a cold Flat Tire Ale and a hot basket of cheese curds were waiting for her.

    1. Since it's snowed three weekends in a row I can hardly wait for Christmas. Just what I asked for, snow.

    1. I used to be one of them without the super fat tires. There's an older guy riding ahead of her and a real nutter in her car popping out for pictures in a snow storm.

  4. That I call a speaking photo...
    By the way: I hate snow, because I must ride my bike by every weather, what other could I do to make my long ways, sigh!
    Merry Christmas time from still snowless Germany

    1. I used to ride my bike in the snow and even had a bit of fun doing it, but I didn't ride my bike in the nice weather at all last year.
      Merry Christmas to you, it got up to the low 30s today so even with all this snow and wind it's a little heat wave.
      Incredible there's no snow by you.

  5. there are few things that I enjoy more than a fresh snow fall and the more the merrier! But my bike is stored away for the winter, thank you. Enjoy your snow, like many things it doesn't last. Thank for the visit, enjoy the holiday and please make your way back.

    1. Well we've had three of them so you'd be in hog heaven my friend. Yeah, I think those days are gone for me too unless I start taking steroids or something.
      Happy Holidays, Tom.

  6. I don't know how you do it, I really don't. It makes me shiver to think of going out in that weather. Our Oregon home used to be relatively moderate...just chilly dark damp rain most winters , but this is the second year in a row they've been hit with terrible ice storms...this one started just a few days after we flew out. To Florida. You may not wish to visit my blog today ... I'm sure our poor freezing Oregon kids don't )))

    1. Neither do I, especially how I do it without falling on my big butt. I was chopping ice just last night and today it feels like paradise, WI style. That's 30+ degrees, y'all. Your kids must be grumbling, haha. It's weird that one of our German blog buddies hasn't gotten snow yet, but I know parts of OR get crazy snowed in don't they. Or is that just the mountains or buttes or what have you.

  7. We escaped just in time!
    We ate so many cheese curds in September when we drove through Wisconsin!! Stayed overnight in Madison.

    1. It turned around again yesterday, Jackie. Ha ha, love those curds. I hope you had a good time and didn't run into too many rowdy Badger fans.

  15. Man alive, that's a whole lot of snow - if one rides the bike a lot, fat tires would really be practical in this kind of weather! I don't know if I want that much snow:):) Anyway, thanks a bunch for sharing the snow with ALL SEASONS! More snow to you, this week!

  16. I'm not sure about the wisdom of trying to stay upright on two wheels in that snow, but I'm sure the big wheels help. Have a blessed Christmas. Stay safe & stay warm.

  17. Looks like you had way more snow than we've had. So far ours is snow but more freezing ice everywhere. Treacherous to go out and walk my dog but roads are passable. Thanks for visiting and linking up. Hope your holidays are shaping up so far. I can't ride a bike well on dry roads anymore so kudos to this person for braving. Agree...hope he has an ale and goodies waiting. :)

  19. Wow that is a lot of snow! Glad you were able to get out in it! :-)

  20. Living in SoFla does not give us much in the way of snow. Without giving away my age too much, I was probably 5 or 6 when it snowed in Miami.
    Yes...Miami Florida.
    The last time my family and I saw snow was 4 years ago and it was A BLAST!!
    I know...'A nice place to visit' and all that.
    Thanks for posting the pic and bringing a little white into our decidedly 'green' Christmas :)
