    Thank goodness is snowed overnight or I wouldn't have realized how lucky I am to live in western PA in the middle of GD April. :mad:

    80 degrees + just 3 days ago. Sitting at 29 degrees out there now with a fresh dusting of snow.

    We've had below normal temps for over 3 weeks. After last weekends foot of snow we are expecting another 1-3" tomorrow. It is March 48th.

    FINALLY!! The wind has dropped in velocity to roughly five m.p.h.!! It has been a grueling week and an half with the high winds. No fun at all in working outside or trying to ride my bike. Woke up this morning to temp of sixty degrees and bright sunny skies. Grabbing a snack and then a bike ride, the first in nearly two weeks.

    Hoping it stays relatively calm with the wind for a few days so I can get more miles in.

    I'm with you, Whizzer, about the wind. It has been vicious around here, too. Makes a short walk to the mailbox an adventure. Can't work outside
    because I don't like getting battered by the wind.

    67 here right now, 10:30 AM, clear skies, calm wind, excellent beeyouteefull day (here in Central Florida) :D Yesterday was great as well.

    Totally out of the ordinary, considering last Saturday afternoon we were at 89 degrees. :idunno:, but I'll take it when we can get it.

    I was reading the thread on NASCAr forum about the tire changer who didn't miss a beat when the tire was taken out of his hands by another car. TRL mentioned they had to readjust to the timing with the new air guns to prevent loose lug nuts. It reminded me of when I first began riding a bike for exercise, this who had been long established riders advised to develop a cadence in pedal rotation and as I got stronger, the speed pedaling would increase. I got to sixty revolutions per minute, and now, whenever I want to rest at slow speed, find it impossible to recalibrate my pedal rotation speed. I still want to maintain sixty revs per minute.

    The end result is, when I want to rest, I simply stop and take a break and when I get back riding, I'm back in sixty revs per minute. Slow by some standards but it fits me fine. Trying to break the cadence is trying to teach an old dog new tricks.:D

    A nice evening out back by the campfire. Probably in the upper 40's but all's good.
