Perfect!

Sunny
Warm (20C/68F)
No wind

Is it any wonder why I cycled almost twice the distance today as I had originally intended?

Another perfect one!

Sunny with a few clouds
No wind!

I did my "Tour of Ten Hills" today ... some good climbing and most importantly, I had fun doing it!

I need to relocate .

100+ heat index with 65%+ humidity and 30-50% chance of thunderstorm every day, it seems like. Just when you think you're getting used to it, you (or someone else) remind yourself of what a nicer climate feels like and have to start all over.

Heh heh, when I look up at the digital bank clock while I'm out riding, and it says 105F, like it did last week, I'll think of you, Machka, and be jealous. That is until January, when I'm wearing a light jacket and you're breaking icicles off your nose.

You do realize that if this trend continues you'll become soft and wimpy - the first foul/humid/nasty day will turn you into a mewling n00b...

Not to worry ... it's supposed to be cold and rainy for the next two days ... again ... much like it has been for the past two years.
