When I heard the weatherman say there was a chance of record highs today I threw the bike on the car and had a nice lunchtime ride. Hard to believe we were up to our knees in snow a week ago.

This weather is ridiculous.

I want it to either snow, and stay snowing, or stay sunny. None of this back and forth crap.

What is strange is November is the second snowiest month of the year. No snow in the forecast yet for November...

I hate it when the weatherpeople say the "normal temperature for this date is ......"

Denver has no "normal" temperatures. It does have "average" or "mean" temperatures.

Nothing is "Normal" around here.

And I love the extreme fluctuations.

I like the back and forth. I got my snow fix in last week and this week I got some riding in. A lot of other places I'd have the bike in the garage until spring.
