Hot, hot and damn hot! Actually, the wind turned at some point last night and is now coming from the south. That will start to cool things off a bit.

Snow. snow and more snow. That's how it is treating me. I'm stuck on the rollers until April if we are lucky. I'm into ski season up here.

The weather in Iowa is GREAT!!! Today was a high of 63...a bit cloudy and windy, but darn nice for this time of year. Spitting rain on the ride in this morning, but plenty warm.

Last couple of week it has been quite cold (had to buy stuff to put on my freezing ears) and I have been caught under the a tremendous rain once. I did have my waterproof gear expect for the shoes. Sadly they were soaked like hell. I was on my way to a dance class and all through the class every time I made a step water was pouring out of my shoes (they absorbed water like sponge - luckily they are all dried up and smell like rotten now) .

However, with the expection of a really strong wind today, since last we the weather has much warmed up. Feels great to bike again.

Mild and mild- however, it's expected to get cold this weekend.

Captain, whereabouts is Matheson? I'm guessing it's northern ontario, judging by the snowy weather you described.

Matheson is a little town in Northern Ontario. It's near Timmins and 6.5 hours north of Toronto. We get two seasons here and they are winter and construction.
Actually it really isn't that bad. We at least get decent winters which we can do something with rather than just being chilled to the bone with damp wet weather. We get great snow here and the ski trails are to die for.

Where are you located?

It's actually really warm up north here in the U.S. It's usually around 30 some degrees, but recently it has been around 55 or so! I love it. Great cycling weather.

It's been unbelievably warm here in Missouri too. Last December it never got above 20F. Tomorrow it's supposed to be 68! And I just put new tires on tonight. Hmmm... I wonder what I'll do tomorrow?

We were lucky, had a record breaking warm November, ave temp. was +1.9C (34F), and no snow. We just got a bit of snow a few days ago, enough for me to put the bike away, as they've got the salt and sand out, and the side streets are pretty slippery. I've been out skiing once and we're expecting more of a dump of snow tonight. Temps going to about -16C (2F).

We picked up another 6" of snow today, and expect a few more inches tonite. I spent a few mintues riding around in the new powder, but no serious rides this winter, too cold!

Being an island nation the weather is unpredictable. Has been mild for time of year, but ride in this morning was cold and wet, with a light wind off the North Sea. Supposed to be drier later.

Now turning to local news............................

Right down here on the south coast it's not a light wind! Extremely blustery, not real rain but wet air (if you catch my drift), and pretty much really unpleasant.

I got the train this morning... Although the wind should give me a kick *** ride home tonight!

If you ever visited the Netherlands, you wouldn't ask.

We live about 15 km from the North Sea. Very short days, especially because of the clouds that are around morning and evening. Makes finding riding time a challenge.

The sun shines here all day every day. It seldom, however, reaches the ground.

Cheers...Gary

Hey JuJu, where in FL? I'm down the coast further in Sarasota.

Weather for the last 3 or 4 weeks has been spectacular. Perfect cycling temps. High's near 80, low's at night in the 60's, and absolutely no precipitation! Humidity is about 70%, which is very dry for us, usually in July and Aug it's 110% (no kidding!)

Been going for a short ride every morning before work. Mostly about 45 mins to a hour, depending on what time I actually stumble out of bed. Longer rides on the weekends.

"Near record" high temps in Missouri--in the 60's F.--and am I cycling? No. I'm sitting in front of one of those old-fashioned CRT computer displays, typing tiny little white letters on a blue background.

I got an e-mail from Norway yesterday. About 4C over there, and they are under a metre of snow.

Meanwhile back here it's actually rained. Cleaning my bike always does that at this time of year. Of course, I'm now convinced that nothing in the entire world can make it rain during winter (or at least, nothing has in the last two years).

Montreal. I seemed to remember Matheson being near Timmins (on a map).It was really mild here today, about 10C (50 F) but FOGGY. Went for a ride- near the waterfront it was a really spectacular sight. I wish someone had taken a photo of us cycling against the background of the water- it would have looked like we were suspended in midair. It's real Het Volk conditions these days!
