It’s All a Matter of Perspective

Wife, mom, grandmother, motorcyclist, and blogger.

Earlier this week we Minnesotans woke up to -9 F (-22 C) with a wind chill making it feel like -26 degrees. It is going to drop again tonight to -15 F (actual). Brrrrrrrr!! No use asking why I live here … but it’s all a matter of perspective.

Today a coworker shared with me the hardship people in Los Angeles faced with cool weather. This video says it all! Thanks Jimmy Kimmel.

It’s All a Matter of Perspective

If you are fortunate enough to ride all year round I hope you realize how blessed you are! Here in the great north we are in the deep freeze.

It's all a matter of perspective - @helmetorheels

I am so glad you stopped by today! I started this blog to document my journey into motorcycling and along the way I met so many other lady riders with inspiring stories to tell I began to share theirs as well.

About the same time I started this blog I joined Twitter (@helmetorheels) and began to meet other female motorcycle riders. These ladies were so inspiring to me because I found other newbies like me to life-long experienced riders who were willing to share encouragement, tips, and their friendship. I was welcomed where I was on my journey. What an incredible community I found online to fuel my desire to ride. Catch us on Instagram @helmetorheels and Pinterest @helmetorheels – we are just getting started!

  1. It’s not the temperature, it’s the humidity….
    I ask myself the same question as the weather guessers are saying -46F (actual) for this weekend.

    Yes, it is a matter of perception.

  2. Brrr you guys are getting hit with the cold. I still remember temperatures that cold when we lived in BC, funny they didn’t bother us as much then.

    Thanks for the Jimmy Kimmel chuckle. I never think of the people in California being that cold at warmer than our normal temps.

  3. Too funny. Oilburner and I have to laugh here when Atlanta shuts down if there is even a hint of frozen precipitation. Even a hint of maybe, possibly snow in the forecast, with an accumulation, maybe of 1/4 inch for 20 minutes, there is a run on milk, eggs, and bread at the market and they prepare by shutting the schools down in case something happens. Sigh. Good luck with your -15F. It’s not that cold. 🙂

  4. When I lived in Northern BC the average warm winter temperature was around -25 to -30 . It was a dry cold so it wasn’t too bad. We had some hellacious winters where we actually hit -75 with windchill, I don’t miss that in the least. Average really cold winter on the Island is about -10, but fret most part we are usually above freezing. It’s just the dampness that does me in.
