Spring Is Here!(?)

Though the calendar says its Spring, the photo I shot at left (click to enlarge) during my ride in to work early this morning is evidence to the contrary. The 29F temp kept me in Winter Mode, i.e. geared-up for sub-freezing temps and and occasional icy patches convinced me to stay away from some of the more narrow and twisty country lanes I would otherwise take. Limited site lines, low light conditions and ice patches don't mix well -- throw in deer and the potential for excitement is a bit too much for me...particularly before my first cup of coffee. I've already had a few "moments" involving ice this Winter that I was fortunate to manage (more due to luck than skill I'm afraid) so I'm not pressing now that warmer temps are nearly here. C'mon "Real" Spring!!
