    What happened to summer?

    It was just a week ago we were in the low 90s. Now I'm digging out the arm warmers and base layer undershirts for riding.

    I don't think it gets much better than this.

    My only complaint is the day light is getting short.

    I think you maybe took a wrong turn. This is the Southeast sub-forum. But if you want to stay and spend a little money, that's cool. Enjoy your stay. Don't forget to tip the waitress.

    It's been a bit longer than that, but the cool off Sunday was annoying nonetheless.

    Autumn blows.

    I prefer warm as well. 85-90* I'm just fine. 50, not so good, and that's what tonight's ride will be.

    But I also have some bike frame painting to do, and since I do it outside, 70's & low humidity are best. It blew right through that in the Spring & I missed my opportunity. Hope it doesn't blow through it this fall. Maybe this weekend.

    There is some debate about what region most of Florida should belong in amongst quite a few Southerners. And if you're meaning St. Petersburg, FL it's St. Pete or occasionally St. Petes.

    You'll enjoy your winter months.
