I used the mail in vote option - plus our town hall was open for early voting, which makes it super easy.

SB - wind and blowing snow? oof, so not ready for that! Though fall did show up today and I have a fire going in the wood stove right now.

PT on Thursday, so until then, it will just be dog walks for me. I did go to the grocery store today, and that appeared to be a bit much, so it was tylenol and ice when I got home. Much better now.

Ooh ... slacking. Was off for getaway on Fri/Sat last week, and then Sunday was catch-up (shopping, last of the yard clean-up, covering the wood pile, etc), plus Pats. Missed three gorgeous days for riding, but did enjoy the getaway. Monday was showers in the AM, so didn't commute... and didn't have the motivation to hit the trainer at night.

Today, back to commuting - 13+ miles on the way in, stopping by the HS to hopefully keep NH blue, and the first full dark 20+ home for about 34 on the day.

SB - hope that the conditions let up enough for you to get out!

Yo - Sorry to read about your friend Mark. It sounds like he enjoyed an active life ... doesn't make the loss any easier (esp for DW and kids), but always better when people are making the most of the time they have - and at least you got to know one of the good ones. Hugs (although maybe you're not much of a hugger).

Zoj - Good to hear your recovery is going well.
Geo - He really did. Everybody thought he would live to 100. He is the only guy I know that could pull of a tiny speedo at the age 71 :). I did become a hugger after many years of living in this country. I will take one or more. And your getaway looked awesome!.

Hit the singletrack on my Pony. Since my day started early (6:30am meeting) I left my office earlier to enjoy the daylight to ride. Where Mark died is just on my route to the mtb trail.... I feel like I have visited this site 100 times since he passed. 1.5hrs. Some slippery leafy trail.... took it super easy and safe.

Zoj-lay low for now glad you are recovering.
Yo-I know some of these losses really hit hard :(
Geo-looks like my yard cleaning is done for the year! I had a slash pile to burn but now its a snow pile.
Well the day started out with light snow that turned to rain.
I had a 1 hour session with my trainer and had a couple ah hah moments about how I weight my steps and so forth perhaps the last piece of the gait/foot pressure puzzle? but now I'm super sore.
I juggled several in person meetings with zoom meetings all day but missed lunch, just a few light snacks before heading out to vote and then to the SAR meeting. During the meeting the weather turned to winter. I drove home in the dark at 25 mph and greatly appreciated my new car with higher clearance and brighter lights and stronger defrost! Of course all the animals were on the road too but it wasn't a white knuckle drive just a slow and steady one over white on white on white roads.

Wyoming does offer early and absentee ballots but for both I still have a 60 mile rt and have to present ID etc. So I thought it easiest to just vote in person as its the same drive and never much wait but I will rethink that for future November elections it may be worth going to the courthouse early instead.

Around 2 am the power went out. We have a new generator hooked up to 1,000 gal propane but its not yet connected to the house, the electrician got very sick a month ago so we wait. I had to get up early to put snow in the refrigerators to keep the temps down. That involved a lot of running around and snow shoveling but no actual workout. On the schedule for today is an EP swim and strength training however it may convert to snowshoeing depending upon the status of power. I snowshoed to the neighbors whose generator is working to run the computer for a zoom call.
