What to do when there’s no snow

I’ve been in a mild funk due to the lack of snow this Christmas, but there’s one sure fire cure for that situation: get out and ride! Actually, that’s the cure for just about any state of bummitude. Besides, it’s a unique photo opportunity; it’s not often that I can take a picture in front of the Christmas capitol!

Having successfully performed an attitude adjustment, I burned tires back to the house, grabbed the family, and went out to look at Christmas lights. We were able to ignore the absence of snow, as were many others. Northview Lane was absolutely packed with constant traffic, as were other Christmas display hot spots. Bismarck-Mandan residents, including newly reminded ones like myself, don’t allow Christmas to be determined by precipitation totals; rather, by their good cheer.
