Spring Has Sprung! 60 to 102 in 5 hr.

It definitely warming up in the Arizona desert. 62 degrees at 6AM and 102 around noon.
I'm gonna have to leave earlier with light soon.
This is the time to be in the Adirondack Mountains area. Oh well I guess it is what it is.

I'll take it, we've reached above the 60 degree mark for maybe the 2nd time this year here in Wisconsin.

It only got up to 90 here. I'm guessing we will hit 100 in a week or two.

Oh joy...

Weather forecast for the Dacks, rain tomorrow, highs around 60 Sunday. I rode at 42 degrees on Thursday. Not quite perfect weather in the North Country yet - but it's getting close.

BTW - still snow in the higher elevations.

Time to head north? To get out of the heat?

oops...

I just checked the weather for next week and it's going to be in the 60s and 70s and some clouds.

I can live with that...

Hmm... and my wife wonders why I like cold weather.... No.. I don't mind the heat.. as long as it's dry. I can do without the "dog" days we get up here .. mid 90's, 98% humidity..
