    Here in Lincoln, this mornings temp was 22 degrees. That was 5 degrees lower than the old record low. Send some of the global warming nuts to Lincoln I would like to have a little chat with them!!!

    Snowed again yesterday and today's high is only supposed to be 28f. The extended weather forecast says we may hit the 40's next week. At least my booties I bought last year are getting a lot of use.

    It's just crazy! My wife and I got a 20mi ride in yesterday over a few hills on CHS rd before it started snowing. I didn't wear my booties and oh my...were my toes painfully cold at the end of the 1.5 hr ride. It was our first ride on our road bikes. Today we'll do 30 as we start to build our mileage up...if it doesn't snow! Sheesh. This weekend last year I was in Denali Park doing Teklanika to Polychrome and back. Not this year!
    If you see an old clyde with a white beard on a white Roubaix .... good chance it's me! Most of the time I'm with my wife who rides a white Spec Ruby.
    Smiling cause my sig doesn't apply to you..

    Well, rumors to the contrary, we CAN get a decent spring day in Michigan, and I have the (annotated) pics to prove it!!

    May 6 now and I'm pleased to report we haven't had snow for 4 days. Maybe spring is around the corner after all.

    We got freezing rain today instead.

    Well, contrary to what people think, we do have two seasons here, winter and summer. Winter is from June to December, and Summer is from January to May. The temperature doesn't change, nor really does the day light period (living in the tropics), but the rain sure does. Winter is when it rains frequently, and summer, when it stops. Right now we are at the end of summer and it is getting DRY, but it is wonderful time for riding dirt roads, that are normally axle deep in clay.

    But rain is wonderful too, for when you wish to be cool on the lastre and paved roads.

    Sorry though, we think it is cold, when we have to put socks on...

    In the Boston area, warm days have been few and far between thus far. That east wind refuses to quit, and it is unusually strong this year. Well inland, they were basking in mid 70s yesterday, but those of us in the Boston area were shivering. Here, it can be in the mid 50s, but with that east wind, feel like it's in the 30s. This time last year, we were getting well up in the 70s by now,
    with some 80 degree days.

    Bring on the summer.

    +1 for New York. It's not snowing here, but we just haven't hit that "gotta get on the bike today" weather yet.

    We went from Winter to Summer down in the south over here. Don't know what happened to spring.

    Temps just hitting the 70's and the wife was in the pool for the first time this year yesterday. Today expected 70's again but for the rest of the week it goes downhill with High 50's and a bit of rain and more wind. Spring may be just round the corner.
