    55?!? Holy s***! It was 100 degrees here in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon. Made for a terrible bike commute home.

    It was 50F riding to work this morning, and it was a wondeful change of pace! I've said it many times: I hate summer.

    Yeah. That's me. Come Febuary, when you can count the temperature on one hand, I will sill wear my shorts and tee shirts. I refuse to give up summer.

    It is unseasonably warm here today. Highs of 26/27°C. Crazy - but I'll take it. I rode to work today, even though I didn't want to, just cause it seemed wrong to waste the good weather. The snow will be here soon enough.

    53F on my commute in the rain this morning. brrrr and it's one of those bone chilling kinda rains, I actually have my full Fall attire on - long tights, heavier Fall coat - FULL FINGER GLOVES. And full lights cause it's dark when I leave and getting darker on the way home (especially when it rains). While I like the Fall and am moving towards the mood of "let's have some snow", this cold rainy stuff sucks.

    Snow? Dude, I love the snow. You can snowboard, or snow ski, or snow sled. You can build snowmen or snowwomen, or snowkiddies, or snowdogs. You can make snow angels and snowcones. Sipping hot chocolate while watching the snow come down is really cool, too.

    If snow came with 12 hours of daylight, I'd be fine with it. But the cold/snow/dark combo just doesn't work for me. Although I've lived in it my whole life, so I guess it kinda does work for me....

    55 is perfect cycling weather, IMO. I stick with shorts and T-shirt till it gets down around 50, then I go long sleeve.

    The only thing I don't like about temps in the 40's and 50's is when it rains. The rain is cold enough that I have to wear some protection against it, but when I do that, I overheat like a mofo. So it's either be freezing, or sweat to death.

    Edit: Oh wait, this is Foo. Am I supposed to be talking about cycling??

    88 in Florida, but the humidity is falling so it doesn't feel too bad. It's such a long slog getting through August and September. We are finally getting to the pleasant weather.

    Yeah, its nice and cool in the low 70's in the mornings now, down here in Florida. And the drop in humidity is wonderful! Hopefully this Sunday is nice and cool. Last time i went scouting in the swamp (2 weeks ago) i nearly died from heat exhaustion, what with all the humidity.

    Yes! Heck, if it's 85 here, if the humidity is low enough, and there's a slight breeze, it can feel "cool" to me. It was 65F this morning, I put a sweater on while getting ready for the day.
