I think us Midwesterners generally develop an appreciation for the ephemeral. Otherwise we develop winter depression or move. Here are a few friends of mine racing motorcycles on studded tires on the frozen McKinley Marina in downtown Milwaukee. On the other side of the breakwater people are ice fishing. We’ve all got our seasonal loves. Unless we have a February heatwave, I expect the ice should be solid for Slippery Sunday during the weekend of Mama Tried Motorcycle Show (if that’s where they decide the ice racing will take place).

Chasing the last bit of sunset on the frozen McKinley Marina in Milwaukee with @fiddyjoey last night. Unless we have a heatwave, looks like it should be good to ride for @mamatriedshow. . . . . . #iceracing #milwaukee #milwaukeebeautiful #dearmke #motorcycles #sunset #shadows #flattrack #winter #mamatried #mx #adv #iphonephotography
