    This winter is evil

    It warms up and makes you think the worst is over. And once you are ready to go out in shorts and a t-shirt, BAM! back to record low's.

    It's so pleasant they have nothing else to whine about. If it gets any sunnier in Texas I'm going to lose it.

    Well I'm happy that we are going to have green hills this spring rather than brown ones like we normally do.

    That's why you always wear a good hat. That way, rain or shine, you're ready for anything.

    It's sunny and 25ēC this evening. The forecast is for it to remain warm and fine for the weekend and into next week.

    we are into a nice warm Autumn here.

    Yeah. We have one or two decent days and then BAM! the downpours come back. I think I've spent more time on a trainer over the last 2 months than I have in the past two years.

    even w/ the doors and windows closed at night the house still smells like cherry blossoms, which the neighborhood has been full of for a few days now.

    this thread is not a ruben thread. Let me fix it for y'all (did i get that right?)

    Why is the weather so unpredictable? It is like a marriage, blowing hot and cold.

    yeah, seeing the women in shorts and skimpy tops all the time really annoys me too.

    yeah ... took my summer bike to a favorite spot 100 miles from my house only to get out and see it's blowing and gusting. ugh. after about 50 minutes a storm blows in complete with snow squalls and rain. ugh. cut my ride short cuz it got dark and I wasn't dressed for those conditions.
    cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting

    Then instead of hoarding snow, use the time to clean the right garage...

    My first (failed) year in college was at the University of Fairbanks, AK. Elevation 446 feet. There was a two week cold snap that January where the highest recorded temperature was -50F.

    For two years after that, I worked out of Deadhorse, AK, elevation 59 feet and just shy of the Arctic Ocean. I'd check the weather every morning during breakfast and was usually pleased to note that it was colder in Fairbanks. Really puts -30F in perspective knowing that my former classmates were stuck in the -40s and -50s.

    I live in Anchorage now, elevation 102 feet. Every once in a while we see high -20s, but rarely. I prefer the midteens, but am comfortable and happy down to 0F. Below that, I try not to whine too loudly, just in case someone from Fairbanks could hear me.
