When the forecast indicated that Philadelphia would get snow, this past weekend, I didn’t believe it.

We spent Saturday huddled up inside, watching the snow fall and accumulate an an alarming rate, and watching people try to keep on top of the shoveling. By nightfall, South Philly had a good 15 inches going —

And we estimate there was 20 by the time we were up on Sunday. Luckily the snow stopped falling by then, because we were getting ready to head up the North Philadelphia for the Bilenky Cycle Works Annual Junkyard Cyclocross Race!

While Kasy helped his coworkers dig out the course (Kasy works at Bilenky, fyi), I registered racers. A good turn out, considering most of the city was still fairly unplowed. Beers were dranken. 3 races took place (A class, B class, females). Awards given. And a good time had by all.

Have a safe and happy holiday, if you’re celebrating!

    I love it when it snows like that. But don’t really like having to drive in it so much. Happy 2010!

    Love the photos of the bike race in the snow! it sure was a big one… we had about 22 inches down here. Honestly, I think we might get another one like that! now, we just have this wind and ice πŸ˜› I definitely prefer snow.

    Happy New Year, dear A!
