Surly Pugsley and the Snowman

Tomorrow night is the full moon, but the snow was aglow tonight. I had great hopes of popping in the earbuds and riding around the park behind my house on the pugsley that is mine until my brother takes it back.

The snow, however, didn't cooperate. Neighborhood kids build the snowman during last weekends warm temperatures and rain. I was certain that this would harden the snow enough to support my ride. No luck. Using the small front chain-ring gave me the torque to go, but the front wheel still kept breaking through and bogging me down.

Despite this I still had fun on a night with a wind chill of a few degrees below zero.
