Sorry.. My Bad

I spoke to soon about liking winter and have made a few coworkers upset. They seem to feel it is my fault for the bad weather. The only good news is that there does appear to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Or to say favorable weather conditions in the 10 day forecast. It could be worst of course as I could be in Indy still and there hasn't be a light at the end of any tunnel over there. I'm fairly certain they are just hoping for some upper 20's and dry weather, which even at that seems hard to come by this winter.

Quite the temperature change from the last time I checked in. I will not be held accountable though.

My last ride outside before the first of a few good snowfalls in the past week. A week later and it's all been indoors and will continue most likely through the weekend. 

So we've been stuck inside for about a week now. It really hasn't be awful, especially for me since I had a recover week last week which included a trip back home with no bike.

My trip back home was a surprise for my wife and also Madelyn. It was my wife's 30th birthday. My father in law and dad bought me a plane ticket to come home for the weekend. My father in law also planned a surprise birthday party for her Saturday night. She was quite surprised by both. It was a great trip and party. I'm glad I was there for it. I remember when my wife threw my surprise 30th party and it was awesome. My dad and brothers even made it down as a surprise.

Getting in some much needed Disney Princess playtime with Madelyn. 

It was harder to leave this time around as the trip was just to short. I can not wait for them to come live out here. However it does look like I will be able to work from home for some time before the baby comes which will be nice.

The only problem I had coming back was that I landed in Denver at 4:15 pm, which was 10 minutes before the Super Bowl which Denver happened to be in. Whoops. No problem as I knew I could make it to the boss's Super Bowl party by halftime after catching the bus. Even though I did show up during halftime the game was already over, and if it wasn't by the start of the 2nd half it was after the kickoff was returned. The only good thing however was that there still were pizza, wings, and peanut butter chocolate balls left. So it wasn't a total lost.

Dug up some things from my storage unit to prepare for the game. Non of which made it out of my bag.

My Super Bowl attire. Hopefully one day the Lions will be in it. 

A week of trainer time now. It's better then the month they've been doing back home. Also this weekend I'm attending the Training Peaks University so that should keep me busy for a while.

Riding rollers at FasCat. The atmosphere is a lot better then the living room back home so that's a plus. 

Our daily commute has been less then pleasant as well with the bad weather. The average 25 minute drive took nearly an hour and half today.
