Sadly, I think I have to agree with you. I'm ready to get outside and do some trail running, or swim in Lake Superior, or other summer stuff. But that's still a few months away.

Stay indoors unless you want to be on a low roast.

I wore shorts and a light cycling jacket over a jersey on Friday. But the winter rains have started up again for the rest of the week. Although we really need the rain. Problem is, this late in winter we don't get the snow coverage in the Sierras, which is at only 80 percent snowpack right now - not enough to get us through until next winter without drastic water cuts (OTOH, SoCal could drastically reduce its water usuage as they're a huge part of the problem).

Are you saying that a huge population center built in the middle of the frickin desert that requires water from other states to support itself is the problem? Naw, that couldn't be it.

I think I'll go whiz in SoCal's water supply now.
