Winter here in Oregon lasts from October to the first week in July..... Yes I concur with your sentiment.

@spdracr39: Just checked the weather in your area. As of 2:45PM today it says:

Temp: 32.2F
Feels like: 29F
Today is forecast to be much warmer than yesterday.

Ouch!

Well, fret not. Your ordeal will soon end. Those of us in California may have had a warm winter, but we'll have to deal with the accompanying drought all year long!

Oregonians: Send some of that rain south, will you?

Ah, no doubt. But in Arkansas, they must be reeling.

Yesterday was such a tease, 71 degrees but 27-37 mph winds. At least I got out for 20 miles. It was 74 degrees today but I had to work late, so no riding.

OK, I officially hate you! Meanwhile, here in S. Michgan, temps ranged from 1F to -13F. Yesterday after work, I had to abandon my truck halfway up the driveway and rescue it with my tractor. Drifts were 2 feet deep. This is March, dammit!

That sounds on the low side. Are you sure that's not supposed to be average low? The average for Lansing MI for this date in March is supposed to be 31F for the low and 51F for the high.

Nope was a warm 25 when I left my apartment and made it up to 30.

Got up in the 60's in Central IN yesterday but quite windy. Today is to be sunny and low 50's - I can live with that. (Tandem ride is planned for the afternoon.) Colder Sunday with chance of wintry mix.

I got my hopes up yesterday at a whopping 45 degrees, but back to sub-freezing and 20mph winds today.

back to the trainers...
