Bad weather is messing up my ride!

I am in Louisiana for a weekend ride. It was great yesterday - gorgeous and the ride was fabulous.

Today is cold threatening to rain - flood warnings in effect right now. My hubby is with our other riding group at Ebenezer and it rained for more than 12 hours yesterday and coming our way.

Hoping it will clear up so we can ride today - supposed to be clear tomorrow for a morning ride.

Hate to complain about rain after the drought last year but geez...we have enough rain at this moment!IMG_4732.jpg

Well the weather was great for me today.
We chased the snow up the mountain. Several weeks earlier than most years

I am so jealous of those who have such a wide range of trails and scenery. I just got my haflinger in February and I have been doing a ton of ground work desensitizing him to everything I can think of to keep both of us safe on our trail ride. I am hoping to finally get him out next month for his first trail ride with me but our weekends have been cold and rainy as well while the weeks are warm and beautiful. Go figure. Glad you were able to get out.

I got lucky and was able to ride twice this week before the weather moved in. We very much need the rain, but why can't it rain while I am at work?!

I made the most out of today's cold, wet weather and repaired fencing. No bugs and no sweat.....just needed a good hot coffee to warm up when done!

Hey keep it go a dull roar here please about the weather. We just 6 inches of snow and wet rains here after mid 70's temperatures for weeks. Stinks. And I brushed the hell out her to work out her winter coat Had to stall her for the night since she was shivering so much.
