Sacramento was a cool 44 with a gusty wind out of the NNW. Weather nerds forecast the first freeze tonight. Overall, a nice ride. I'm looking forward to that evening headwind.

Land-use planner for a Recreation and Park District. Developers build homes and I negotiate park requirements and design. It's a pretty mellow gig. My education is in geography.
