It's that time of year

When you wear more coming to work than you do leaving. I really dislike the transition period. Rather than getting to play a bit on my way home, I have to lug an extra jacket and pants around.

At least it's pretty in the afternoons lately.

I don't like it either, but at least your transition period is relatively short. Mine is almost all winter. I just carry my warmer weather stuff in my panniers on the way in and my morning stuff in my panniers on the way home.

The thing I have to really watch for is that I don't leave my gloves at work in the afternoons.

I'd be delighted if you'd send some of your transition here. I'd be very happy to wear less when going home tonight. It's 3F right now, up from 1F this morning.

My entire winter is long sleeves/legs/fingers in the AM (25-40F) and short sleeves/legs/fingers in the PM (55-65F).

Now is the transition period to short sleeves AM & PM.
