Dodging the Roadkill: Psychologically Spring

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – It’s time to SPRING FORWARD and I couldn’t be more excited. I am NOT a fan of winter and although it’s not officially spring, psychologically, I’m there.

I hate January and February. 

I guess the older I get, the more I can’t tolerate cold temperatures.  Plus, it cuts down on my “biker” time.  In my part of the country, Tennessee, we have some of the most schizophrenic weather you will find.

One day it could be 60 degrees, then the next day, 25. We could have snow overnight,that would melt away to a fifty degree day by afternoon.
