Is it spring yet?

It must be close to spring, last Friday night it was Pinewood Derby time. For the first time in a few years I only had to make one car. Now that JoBro is a Boy Scout he's out and it's up to Curly to carry the load. After Mondays time trials we knew we had a OK car. Not a great car but not slow either. So after doing what we could to make it go faster but overall it was a middle of the pack car. I think he got 4th or so but not good enough for a trophy. Overall I think it was good for him to have a so-so car. He's had pretty fast cars the last few years so I was good for him to be a good sport even when he's not the best.

Snow, yea, this is the end of our driveway! Living across the street from the school has it's advantages but when the snow flies and the wind blows it means big drifts. It took a while to clear off the driveway this time. Wonder how much snow we are going to get tomorrrow?
It's hard to believe that cross is still not over! Even after Worlds there are still a few more races going on in Europe. If you get up early enough (7am) on the weekend you can catch the races on your computer. I watched both of these races and the courses looked like so much fun. It's going to be a fun summer building for next years cross season.
More cross, makes me wish for warmer temps and no snow!

Just a few more weeks before road season begins and everything is taking shape for a great season. It's mind boggling trying to get all the bits and pieces together for a small team. I can't imagine what it would be like for a big team. I'm so glad I my part is relatively small but it's pretty cool to be involved in something that's bigger than myself. People talk about how cycling is a team sport but it's not just the riders that make the team. It's all the guys behind the scenes that make the whole thing work, and when it works, it's amazing.

That is some snow. Wow. You are scaring me a little saying the road season is only a couple weeks away.
