The past few days have continued the climate roller-coaster. An awesome, mild weekend came to a screeching halt with low double-digit temps yesterday, and single-digits this morning. I still love my cheap grocery store mittens!

One of my co-workers always has stuff on her whiteboard. It got vandalized yesterday. I got a chuckle out of it, but I swear I had nothing to do with this one!

Last night, I went to the new CCCKC Underground Lab to help the build-out team determine what we'll need before grand opening (March 1st). This is a 1,400 sq. ft. semi-finished office area buried 85 feet below the surface in some of the old limestone mines of Kansas City. The following photo is of the tower that houses the mineshaft elevator we use to get to the space.

You can enter from the road as well, but parking is very limited underground. These roadways are mostly for delivering goods to the warehouse and office spaces in the refurbished mines. This is similar to the Meritex facility I photographed during the 2007 and 2008 Lenexa midnight rides.

The space has some furniture left from the previous tenants. It's a little rough around the edges, but we'll make it work!

I think I can imagine some rock-climbing holds bolted to this wall...

The good news is that this space is right on my way home AND I'm pretty sure I can ride my bike straight in without any problems.

Sorry, not much in terms of bicycle stuff lately. Between the temperatures and other hobbies of mine, the bike's been basic-transportation-only and there's only so much that happens in a week that's even remotely noteworthy. I am looking forward to the next leg of our climate roller-coaster: some forecasters are calling for 70 degrees or higher by the end of the week. What?!
