    sigh!

    Two days ago it was 70 out and I had clothes hanging on the line. Yesterday it was 60 and I went for a short ride on the Badger trail. This morning it was 30 and I had to shovel the walk before heading downtown for coffee and the paper!

    Yeah, it's 37 degrees here with a 30 mph north wind, and they say the snow is on its way. I sure am glad it's the first day of spring. Otherwise, it might get cold or something.

    They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.

    I think something called summer follows on from Spring and we had that last week. 4 days of brilliant sunshine that set the weeds growing in the garden. Yesterday and today feel like Autumn.

    I hear you rck, and I see the same snow.

    But not to fear, supposed to be over 50 tomorrow and close to 60 on Mon & Tues. Pretty good for this time of the year. Then cooling off after that.

    We knew those 60+ days weren't going to last. We were very lucky to get them!!

    Mid to upper 60's right now, should hit 70 later today. Got to 71 yesterday. Got a great ride this morning, first of the year. I can't believe how much good the work on the trainer did. Hit a couple hills that gave me trouble last year, and on the first ride of the year, I just spun up them.
    Supposed to be a nice day again tomorrow, then back to the 40's on Monday.
    But spring is here, and it'll only get better!!!

    I ran 20 miles and cycled 50 this week in the great weather we were having, then had to run a 5K this morning in the low 30s with a stiff breeze blowing. Back to normal I guess...

    Sorry you're all having crappy weather. We're having great weather here. 68F (20C) yesterday and 73F (22C) today. Rode both days.
    Tomorrow its supposed to be 60F (16C) with rain. I guess I'll get some inside chores done.
