It's snowing here. In the Hudson Valley.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

You're not alone. Here in Pompano Beach, we're expecting mid 60's Saturday night. We booked a room on the beach about 15-minutes from the house to relax..... Never expected such a drop in temperature

65 and sunny here

It rained the past two days. Rain in CA is worse than a blizzard in the north east. On Tuesday, CHP said there were over 700 reported car accidents. There is nothing more dangerous than a California driver and rain.

Well I can stop complaining about the 110+ temperatures out here now. It was 65 when I started my ride at 6:30 am this morning... Should get up to 85 this afternoon. They're calling for 100+ this weekend but back in the 80's next week.

Now I remember why I moved here from Wisconsin a few years ago. I have to drive 2 hours north to play in the snow (but threw away my shovels and gave away the snow blower).

It's not that bad. It's just unseasonal.

Bring it. Stupid jerkoff weather gods.

Pcad, do your gardening gloves keep your hands warm enough in those cold temps?

Yeah mid 30's and sleet/rain/snow this morning on my commute too. Only bike on the road. Found out "winter" tires weren't going to fit my fork at the LBS last night, not ready to spring for a cx fork just yet.

Northeast storm here this morning before the rain, fun ride along the beach in 25 mph winds. Raining now so it looks like a long weekend.

It is 80 here, but it is pretty much everyday like that. Time for a swim.

PCad, you are insane, and living where it snows this time of year is proof. Surely I could have you committed without question.
