She is so lucky the seller caved. I bought a house with SolarCity/Tesla.... I don't hate it. It doesn't save me much, if anything.
I'm embarrassed a little that I knew nothing about this. That cemetery is miles from my childhood home, and I've driven past it more times than I could count. I was chatting with my brother about this and he shared the following he learned while doing a research paper in college on the matter:
- I believe in one of the Kruschev/Nixon exchanges, the comment was made, “at least we didn’t send troops to fight in the American Revolution “ and Nixon had no idea what he was talking about
yah... I''ll ride in the rain - I don't mind it at all. But I haven't done ice/snow since I was a kid and learned that hard way that bikes and ice don't mix. And honestly - my last commute was better at night - more trails, very little on surface streets. My current commute is just a few too many miles on not-so-bike-friendly streets to begin with, in broad daylight. I don't need to ride... so I only ride when I feel safe. Even as a conscientious driver - during the winter when it's dark, it's just really damn difficult to see a bicyclist - even when they're lit up like they're at burning man.
I have looked very seriously at e-bikes. But honestly - I like (and could use) the exercise. My challenge during these months are more about the iced over paths, and the fact that it's dark during the commute hours. Only a few more weeks and I should be back in business at least a few days per week.
Late to the pub... as per the usual lately.
As it turns out, the fuel pump in a Mini Cooper costs more than you might think... It makes me crave more sunlight in the morning so I can get back on my bike to work program.
I've got some time booked this weekend for a creative project I'm working on. More on that later.
I love you all and miss you more.
