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.

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.
