    Except I'm in the PNW where the outlook is "much below" for temperature and I'm looking at snow falling. :-(

    Yep, new shorts will be arriving this week. I may need to swim out to the mailbox though to get them.

    I'm also in the PNW on the north Oregon Coast. Had a major rain and wind storm last night. I'm glad to see the mid and eastern part of the U.S. is finally getting some nice wx. They've really gotten hammered this winter.

    I did 30 miles yesterday in pouring rain, 44 degrees when I got home. Shoes are still wet so I drove my car to work today.

    Here in the Boston area, we are experiencing yet another monsoon type rain storm, with two to five inches expected, depending on where you are. This is not good. A lot of people are still pumping and mopping up from the last one.

    But, there is talk of low 70's by Friday. It has not been this warm, this early around here for a long time. I am thinking, "Vacation day" for riding. Who's with me???

    Every time I think about it the weather guy starts talking snow again. Will wait til the end of April to be safe.

    As President Bill Clinton said, "well it is the first day of Spring, a sure sign Al Gore's global warming season has started."

    I was nice here today. Sun was out, no appreciable wind, about 60 deg F.... finally!

    We enjoyed an after-work ride, but Mother Nature still had the last laugh. She provided my front tire a sharp stone about the size of a grain of rice. That's all that was needed.

    Temps alleged to be nice for the rest of the week, but winds on Thursday, my next chance to ride, forecast to be 25 - 30. Figures.

    Not putting the winter kit away just yet, but I was able to pull out the summer bike a few weeks ago when we had a really warm spell. The warm spell only lasted less than a week, but it lasted just long enough to tune the bike up and make some changes.

    Although the diagram ends at the Canadian Border, the big red section doesn't, here in Toronto, the forecast for Thursday is 21℃(70℉), Friday is 23℃ (73℉) and Saturday is 25℃ (77℉), pretty good for the beginning of April when 8℃ (46℉) is considered normal. Nice weather and a long weekend, an unbeatable combination.....
