    What a difference 7 days makes!!!

    About 50 degrees worth-thankfully on the warmer end here in NC.

    Last weekend was the wet and white stuff with temps 15-30. For various reasons I wasn't able to ride for 2 weeks.

    I tried to make up most of the riding up this weekend. Stayed out 6+ hours and did a nice 102 miler in 70+ degree weather. With the low humidity and nice temps I kept looking for San Diego city limit signs. Did a little recovery ride today and then worked in 18 holes of golf. I now have a really good start on my tan lines for 2009!!

    Our temps of mid - 40s' would be fine, to ride today,except for the "high wind advisory"' We just had over 3" of rain this past weekend. Do you feel my contempt? Right now I'm holding my hand at arm length with my index finger and thumb about 1/2" apart. I've eyeballed my fingers over your advatar and I'm "crushing your head". Do you feel it? Ok, I'll just squeeze my fingers together a little closer, feel it yet? Yea, I'm crushing your head. I hope that teaches you a lesson about rubbing it into my eyes.

    We were out in the desert, and the temp. is a matter of altitude. It was 65 deg.F at the start on the desert floor (Anza Borrego), but very cold (40F)at the top of the first climb (Montezuma Valley Rd.), only about 2,200 ft. higher up.

    Very cold on the descent to San Felipe (we carried extra clothes in our jersey pockets so we could dress warm at the summit), then warmer as we got close to Santa Ysabel (take off extra clothes), then colder again on the climb to Julian, and v.cold on the first 2/3 of the 10 mi. descent out of Julian.

    Take off extra clothes again when we got down to the desert floor. Some wind, but nothing terrible. This was about 40 mi. from the U.S./Mexican boarder for your geographical ref.

    Glad you finally got some nice weather. We did a TTT on Saturday and a long ride on Sunday. Temps were in the 50s /60s and sunny.

    It is too bad OHIO has such lousy weather.

    Pointless keeping it in Saturday would have been a good day for riding- but I went Sunday. Had to battle with a 30mph westerly tailwind on the route I went on-had enough sense to take a protected route when I went East. And the little ridse we have in temps that means we are approaching 50 occasionally has finished till the end of March. At least I had enough sense to get some warmer clothing this winter.
