More Spring Riding

Yesterday was April 1st and I must've managed to remove myself from enough email lists so that the only April Fools Day email was this one from Aerostitch. I can deal with that number. Right now, my email inbox has a grand total of one (1) email message and that is about the morse code Skype class that will be starting this Thursday. I guess that there is some Windows-only software that needs to be installed. I guess I will be digging out the Windows tablet.

Mother nature did have an April 1st joke for us. Between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, we got about an inch or snow of fresh snow. And early this morning, the temperature was only 1°F. By the time I left for College Coffeehouse, it had warmed up. And now (2:30pm on Monday afternoon) it's all the way up to 28°F.

I recorded some more GoPro video and tried to use the new, updated GoPro Quik software but it locked up the machine (MacBook Pro, 3.3GHz I7, 16 GB, TB SSD) three times. After that, I just deleted the software. But, since I had taken the short video clip, I played around with iMovie some more. I haven't found an easy way to add simple text without using one of their presets but I'll keep playing with it. This video is under 2 minutes long unlike the ridiculously long last video.

Fresh snow covering the dirty snow....good stuff

I think the few times Brad has used GoPro footage (a few years ago) he used iMovie as well. His old laptop really didn't like doing much with the footage though. This seems to work well for you.

Today is sunny with snow flurries. Not sure hot that works...

I really liked the old GoPro Studio software. Really simple and basic. It's still on the laptop but it couldn't read the video files. More accurately, it claimed to open the video files but they were blank.

Spring to you ... still looks like winter to me. The snow was short lived here on April Fools ... we are now facing rain, lots of rain.

I gave up on cameras, I just got my buddy Jeff to buy a GoPro, follow me, and edit all the videos. My own personal cameraman.

I keep thinking of picking up another camera to get some variety in perspective but then the editing will just take a lot more time.

With 13 hours of daylight it definitely no longer winter. So I'm telling myself over and over again that it's spring...

You seem to manage the slippery roads quite well, Richard. Our forecast will see temperatures around 20C, not too bad for the erratic weather pattern that April usually gets.

Icy roads can be a lot of fun as long as traffic is minimal. Right now (Thursday afternoon), it's +4°C. Lots of liquid water everywhere today!
