    Sick of the weather...

    Well, today was supposed to be sunny and cool, as the rest of the week but warming to 70 slowly by Friday.

    NOT!

    I wake up today and it is snowing! 34 degrees out right now. Big flakes of snow coming out of the sky (thankfully ground is warm enough it wont stick).

    I was all ready to fit in a 10 mile, maybe even 15 mile ride today Now the weather for tomorrow is showing rain, I think I need to buy a trainer again, or an exercise bike. I don't ride in the rain, in fact I don't do anything in the rain. I don't like the feeling of being soaked!

    At least Thursday and Friday still look to be nice. Ill have to cram some miles in then.

    Sorry, just had to vent. I'm a little ticked off at the weather right now

    Same thing with Michigan.... unfortunately, I'll have to wait until I retire before I can leave...

    Move? During a crappy economy when I am at a job that for me is rather secure at the moment? Nope :-p Where would I go? South? I hate heat...

    I like NY enough, I just hate how spring is here. Friday and early saturday are now the only days that look good for cycling. Thursday is going to have 20-30mph winds...NOT cycling weather. I guess I will be going for a long walk thursday...better than nothing

    Yeah, I know how you feel. No snow here in the U.P., but I'm really tired of day after day of 40ish degree weather. Tonight's supposed to hit 34. The one good day in the forecast I'm working. It was the same last week.

    I still get out and ride, but I really, really would just like a semi-warm day for it, for a change.

    I crashed hard on Monday. I tried blaming that on the weather, but my wife wasn't having any of it.

    At least it is sunny out.
