Winds are gusting to 39mph, and snow has been blowing around for most of the day seriously reducing visibility. I only have 30 miles to Marathon, but I'm considering this blatantly unsafe for riding and am spending the night in Alpine again. The forecasts for tomorrow look fine.
The brainstorming topic that I've tasked myself with over the last few days of riding has been, "What are the secrets of happiness?" Since I'm holed up in a motel again today, between rounds of sit-ups and push-ups I'll probably post what I've come up with so far.
