It Got Cold

Sometimes the system fails. It's easy to get in the habit of assuming the temperature will rise during the day. Yesterday during the day this happened:

The top graph in red is the temperature dropping. The bottom in red is the wind picking up. It's nice to know it can still be January.

Yesterday morning I knew exactly where to draw the line for clothing in 27 degree 15 windchill weather. I was not prepared for a 15 degree drop in temperature and was terribly underdressed to bike home.

To make matters worse the best bus choice would have me home at a terribly late hour. A co-worker was kind enough to give me a ride.

This morning I bailed on the ride too. The Wife was kind enough to let me join the family car pool. I like this MinusCar stuff. Gives me more time with the wife. Hi honey!

I did get a little time outside with a 1 mile nighttime walk to KT's house for some DVR'd HD live concert video. Alas, he did not open the door when I arrived so I turned around and returned 1 mile home. I like this MinusCar stuff. Gives me more time outside to enjoy January's brief visit.

I had to go back and read my 'why I like to bike in the winter' to remember why...
