Woohoo, today was beautiful! HUGE, puffy snowflakes. Temps in the mid-30s. Snow only sticking to non-pavement (aka grass). Just perfect.

When I got on the scoot to head out to work this morning, I looked down at the speedo and noticed the odo was at 15151.5. Kinda cool and random.

Snow wasn’t sticking to the ground, but boy did it stick to the Buddy. It was hard, crispy, icy as I geared up to head home.

Fueling up before the big freeze predicted for the rest of the week. I was on empty. Note the fill…that’s right, 1.117 gallons for $3.86. That’s a fill-up to the tip-top of the tank, and will last over a week of simple commuting.

One of my favorite decorated houses on the commute. I look forward to the over-the-topness every year.

Scooting along Dexter Avenue, I grabbed a snap of the Cranston Street Armory as envisioned by Edvard Munch.

Got asked today by a priest, “Get the bike up from Florida yet?” Sigh.

    You can buy gas at 7-11??? Plus, how did you manage to put Christmas lighting on your scooter?

      Haha, yeah, 7-11 has gas stations in the provinces! This place is the cheapest on my commute.

      I’ll do a post about the lights. Both the front and back are battery-operated strands; white LEDs on the front wrapped around the wreath and red LEDs on the back, attached to the metal milkcrate with strips of Velcro (used for attaching plants to guylines, posts, supports, trellises).
