Dashing Through The Snow

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?
