The bad news is that it was 15 degrees and I chose my clothes wrong.
The good news is that at least I overdressed instead of underdressing.

The ride home was (also!) cold and clear with lots of little stars and not much traffic. It's amazing how similar the rides to and from work are in the winter.

I bought a new balaclava over the weekend. For what I paid for it, I was expecting it to be awesome. It is not awesome, but it is satisfactory. I can layer my old fleece turtle fur over it.

It was one of those days. Everything was just weird. I'm convinced that there is a cosmic switch somewhere labeled "Weird / Not Weird." Someone had flipped it to Weird.

Started out too cold, ended up too hot. I'm still in the process of figuring out how many layers to wear and when.

Other than that, it was a pretty good ride. Uneventful in the good way.
