Dashing Through The Snow [Monday 7 Feb 2011 at 07:45 pm]
Owen
After my nice ride yesterday, I decided to go again today. Twenty-five miles through the mountains. But today a snowstorm came up mid ride.

First it was rain on the initial ascent into the mountains. Rain is no fun at just a few degrees above freezing and moreso when you're riding in a light jersey with short sleeves. Then the rain went away for a bit before turning into heavy snow that arrived with 30mph winds. One nice thing about snowflakes is that they bounce off you instead of soaking in; it's really warmer than rain. It was getting hard to see by the end of the ride and my face got to hurting from snowflakes at high speed.

That's what I get for having fun in the winter. It's supposed to get colder tomorrow.

How long now until spring springs?

Well, if my daylillies have anything to say about...soon! Darn things are sprouting up already.

Then the temperature dropped. Hasn't been above 40 all day. Brrr.
