Springtime Can't Come Soon Enough!

This winter has felt long.  Way, way too long.  I am tired of the cold, rain, and mud. I'm tired of the darkness. It is all getting to be too much for me.  It's time for the warm, sunny days of springtime and the long hours of June daylight to return.

Enough of this!  I want 60 degree temperatures and lots of good singletrack!  Is that too much to ask?

"Yes, for February it is." (God speaking)

Yeah, I know it's February all right.  I'm just eternally disgusted with Georgia winters.  I would much rather have a quality Wisconsin or Montana winter than this wishy-washiness we get down here in Georgia.  No consistent snow, but hey every now and then we get enough white stuff to screw up the trails for weeks.  And even when the trails are dry, it is cold enough to make riding really not all that much fun.

But sure, we brave the elements anyways, and are rewarded with some good singletrack riding that really does bring pleasure to the soul. 

Ah, there's always something to complain about. It's much better to just joyously accept what God has given, and live it up!  We've only got one shot at this life, and he's made an awesome world for us to enjoy, with people to meet and know, and trails to be ridden with them!  Of course, heaven's going to be all that and much, much more.

Who knows? Maybe with all of these natural disasters, some of us are going to get sent there soon.  But we could still use some spring weather in these parts.
