How 'Bout That Weather?

I got up, this morning, and really wasn't in a good frame of mind about the ride to work. This was Day 3 of riding on studded tires, in "cold" temperatures. Thirty two degrees is actually pretty warm for 5:45 A.M., in January. But still, I was feeling a bit sorry for myself.

Then, I turned on the tv and heard the weather forecast for Minneapolis. The forecasted high?

Six degrees below zero!

So, basically I just told myself to STFU and get on the bike.

Of course, it turned out to be a really nice morning for a ride. But; aren't they all?

I woke up and looked at my outdoor theremometer reading to see -10 F,the news says the wind chill is in the -20's.I am so glad I am working from home.

I'll just drink my coffee and sit by the fire today.For a second I thought I might actually go out and do something,but sanity took over.

This is the coldest day here in Ohio since Feb.1994, when we had -27f actual temp.

I don't think I ever saw the temps below zero when I lived outside of Columbus (windchill, yes). Even moderately cold temperatures there seem colder than they do here in Denver. It's probably tghe humidity, or something.

Anyway, stay inside and keep warm.

Wow! So you'll still be be riding 18,000 years into the future? COOL!!! Just kidding, I just thought it was a little funny.Of course I have a strange sense of humor.
