Got a little warm here in Nebraska, too. Two degrees cooler yesterday than the weather guesser said it was going to be..was only 101 degrees on the way home. And, 6 days ago, we had a rain and snow mix! Ahhhhh, the American midwest! Gotta love it! I started hydrating like crazy at work starting at noon, and still consumed 70 ounces of water on my 7 mile ride home! But, I had fun, and did it at my second fastest speed since I started keeping records! Gotta love it! Water is power, so drink lots, keep spinning, and have some fun!
