    90 . . .

    While some of you folks are still smowbound and awaiting spring . . .
    We hit 90 degrees today and it's only St. Patty's Day! A bit early, even for us Zonies.
    Our irises' are blooming, got a few flower buds on our grapefruit tree and it looks like our lemon tree may have survived our cold blast of 18 degrees from a couple weeks ago as we see some new green sprouting leaves.
    Did get out do a shortened tandem toot this morning; only got in 13 miles as stoker Kay did not want to do any climbing into our 20 to 30 mph spring breezes.
    Nice to have something like 90 degrees sunshine too complain about.
    Pedal on TWOgether!

    Cold and blustery at the top of the chairlift yesterday. It was much nicer about 100 yards from the top. Snow was super.
    Going to Tucson next week. The shock from the differences may be too much.
