Dodging the Roadkill: Layered Up To Throttle Up

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Obviously old man winter has reared his ugly head in many parts of the country, so the days I get to ride are far and few between. 

Today was one of those days.

I haven’t had “black beauty” out for a good run in over a week.  On that day, the temps were in the low to mid fifties, but I was still trying to shake a bad cold and just didn’t feel it.  

This week, we’ve had rain, ice and some snow flurries, so the best I could do was fire up the “beast” and take it for a quick spin around the neighborhood.  Not much, but it felt good.

NASA study shows Asia’s Glaciers moving slower due to Ice Loss

 

Written by Carol Rasmussen
NASA’s Earth Science News Team

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – A NASA-led, international study finds Asia’s high mountain glaciers are flowing more slowly in response to widespread ice loss, affecting freshwater availability downstream in India, Pakistan and China. Researchers analyzed almost 2 million satellite images of the glaciers and found that 94 percent of the differences in flow rates could be explained by changes in ice thickness.

For more than a decade, satellite data have documented that the glaciers were thinning as the melt rates on their top surfaces increased.
