I hate wintertime. I don't mind the cold so much, since that means I can have a fire in the house and I love Christmas and all the surrounding holidays, but I hate winter. I hate that it is dark when I leave work these days. In Southern California, winter kinda sneaks up on you. We don't have fall (the changing colors, the chilling cold, the light rain) to break us in. Suddenly, you leave work and it is dark and you realize Thanksgiving was last week and Christmas right around the corner.
This being dark when I leave work means a few things.
I won't be getting much riding in during the week. There is always the possibility for night rides, which make for great fun, but when its dark and chilly I am much more inclined to go straight home, put on my jammies and make a fire.
I also won't be taking many new photos, since its dark when I leave work and I just want to go home, put on my jammies and make a fire.
Which also means I'll be sharing lots of older photos with you (while I sit at home in my jammies by the fire), such as these taken a few months ago near my hometown.
