Chicken for Breakfast?

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Not really, but while eating a little bit of breakfast this morning, Amy and I hard a rooster crow…sounded like it was right outside the front door.  It was.  I’ve got a little bit more bloggable material for you, but this one will work in a pinch.

Austin has a saying…Keep Austin Weird.  Truth be told, Austin really has ceased to be weird.  It’s a really cool metropolitan area, but not so weird anymore.  I remember coming to Austin as a kid, and it was the weird funky kind of hippie liberal town.  Oh the past!  But, chickens in central Austin definitely keep it a bit ‘weird’.

Don’t Like the Weather

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

Apologies now for the double blogging.  But, there’s a saying that I thought was specific to TX…

“If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute, and it will change.”

It’s not specific to Texas, and it didn’t take a minute, more like about 12-20 hours or so…but today was quite a contrast to the rest of the week!

Austin “Blizzard” of 2011

Friday, February 4th, 2011

We’ve got it pretty good here.  The weather has been pretty good from October through January this year.  This week was the first really cold week, or at least when the cold lasted more than a day or so.

It has been cold, really cold, for Austin this week.  It started on Tuesday.  Monday we rode outside in shorts and short sleeve jerseys.  Tuesday it got cold.  It settled down around 20-25F Tuesday shortly after Noon and stayed there until mid-morning today (Friday).  Last night it snowed…a little bit.  This morning we woke up to find snow.  Naturally, like everyone else in Central Texas, we had to take some pictures and took the opportunity to shoot another ‘What are you doing’ TeamTBB video.  You can only shoot them so often or they just become ‘ho-hum’.  And, no real need to shoot any training videos…training is training and everyone does it!!  They are both pretty self explanatory.

And Amy.

I thought I’d upload a couple of pictures as well.  Yesterday was a movie day on the trainer.  Not too long…we say we watched 2 movies, but really we watched 1 plus a little bit of the 2nd.  Amy’s getting prepped for AbuDhabi…so maybe she should sit through 2 or 3 of them!!

Amy watches herself go in circles, I wanted the Movie

Yes, I took a quick pit stop and shot a couple of pics.

And, for your viewing pleasure…a shot of the “blizzard” that hit Austin.

Snow In Austin

DO NOT go outside unless you HAVE To!!

There you go…snow day in Central Texas.  It doesn’t happen too often, and when it does, the city grinds to a halt.  Stay tuned as we’re headed to the Rev3 race in Costa Rica and then will likely be off to training camp in Thailand again.
