@FunDad62 I'm in Trinidad & Tobago, twin islands in the Caribbean. We are known as the land of calypso, soca and steelpan which is the only new musical instrument invented in the 20th century. Our carnival season begins at the start of the year with various fetes, concerts, cultural shows and culminates with the street festival on the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. The carnival includes several art forms and competitions are held during the last week to select winners in each category. 

i really enjoy the soca music and my radio is always on blast at this time.Here is a video of one of my favourite soca songs this year.

93 today.  Picked up Fiare from an annual servicing.  The brake and shifting cabling was replaced as it stretches with use.  No surprise there.  I service the brakes myself so they were good.  It was discovered that I wore out the bottom bracket (the part the pedals and cranks connect to in the middle of the frame).

crackers & cheese created an 8 for me.

 

Poor Fiare..........would pushing up so many steep inclines created more wear?

I don't know.  I think just 12,000 miles does it.  A new bottom bracket was installed and she is riding better than ever.

8.5 wow 

 

I'm still sleepy but not in a coma like state I experienced all night.

I could hear the dog bark 3 times but couldnt do anything about it, not even wake enough to wonder if the house was on fire or we had an intruder.

Poor dog..he is expected to run the house while I sleep.

I typically avoid riding in the rain.  Today I made an exception and had a great ride.  Most of the ride was a misty rain in the fog.  Since it was Sunday, there was not much traffic.  There are sights, sounds, and smells that can only be experienced in the rain.  I didn't even mind the extra clean up on the bike after...

 

This spider's web was a jewelled beauty with a little rain.

We had around 10 inches (25 cm) of wet, heavy, sticky snow over night. The temperature hovered around freezing over night, luckily there was no wind to bring down powerlines.

High temperatures will be around 50 and then in the teens overnight freezing everything to ice.

82 for me.  Surprising really.  I wasn't that physically active yesterday and I did way too much "tasting" while I was cooking.  :)

A 73 (4.06) today.  We got about 3 inches of snow last night, so I went out this morning to clear off my driveway and my vehicles.  I really like my snow rake, and it does a quick and easy job of clearing the snow off of my vehicles.  Before I got the snow rake, I'd use a push broom to clear off my vehicles, but because the bristles are soft, lots of times it would take several passes of the broom to clear off one spot, plus, the bristles would constantly get clogged with snow, so I had to stop and clean the snow out the bristles.  The snow rake is some type of solid material that won't scratch your car, so just one push across the vehicle's roof, hood or trunk, clears the snow off of that section of the vehicle.  This is the snow rake that I have.  Notice in the third picture that it can be used on uneven sections of the car, like the raised section of the hood in that picture.
