On Friday, the last day of Winter, I took my Valkyrie out for a short half hour ride in a continuing quest to clear the gunk out of the fuel system. It was a gorgeous day, with temps near 70 and sunshine. The Valk recovery is progressing nicely, and she no longer smokes like a crop duster on startup. By the time I brought her home I could get her up to the speed limit - pretty much. Seafoam cleaner rocks.
All in all, it was a good experience.
Saturday, the first day of Spring, I posted a dismissal of Winter - since the day was occasioned with wind, rain, and sleet. I welcomed the Maiden Spring, and ordered Old Man Winter to get thee hence from my sight.
This morning, when I went out to load up my gear for the beginning of my work week - this is what greeted me:
That's my Wife's Kia, buried under about 6 inches of snow - with more coming down. I had already cleared the bulk off of my Tacoma, which you can see in the background. The streets are awful, so I didn't clear off my Wife's car. Further deterrent for her to get out on the roads unnecessarily. On my drive in to work (normally 30 minutes), I passed no fewer than 7 cars stuck in the ditches.
Texas Weather.... Whatta ya gonna do?
