I Love the Balmy Weather

Hey - the temp has increased from 9F to 9.7F in the 45 minutes I have been up this am. Too bad I have to sing this am!!

How about your balmy weather? No replies from Florida, AZ or CA, please

Beautiful cycling weather, if by that I mean thinking about bicycling again someday when all the roads are clear and dry.
7.5" of snow the day after Christmas. A bit more yesterday. Some more tomorrow night and New Year's AM. 20F right now. Highest projected temp in the next ten days: 33F.

Our backyard yesterday:

It isn't balmy here at all. Not as cold or probably as windy but for us it is cold (37*F at 1124). Hope things warm up for the high plains and the mid west soon. Please be safe out there if you go out.

It was frosty enough over the other side of the border in Chilliwack for the doors on my father-in-law's car to be frozen shut. But a frost means clear skies, and Machka's anxious to get out for a ride this afternoon -- our first since getting back to Canada in mid-December.

I'm still keen to get to the gym, too.

Just on 40F this morning but with a strong wind giving a chill factor meant that I did not believe the thermomter

This morn at 9AM it was 40F with a wind chill of 33. By the end of the ride(41 slow miles fighting a nasty head and cross wind) it was 44F with a wind chill of 37.

Another great day to ride here on the wet side of OR, which means it wasn't wet at all. 37F when I took off, a bit cooler at the top of the hill on the first trip over and then it turned balmy as the temperature crossed into the 40's later in the day. Strangely enough, there were very few cyclists out on my usual short loop, but that was made up for by the lack of cars as only ten of them passed me in forty miles.

It will be in the single digits below zero overnight, with an expected high of 12 degrees Monday. The forecast says "sharply colder air is on the way," so I guess I should get a ride in before it cools off.
