I look at the calender, see that tomorrow is June first, summer around the corner. Hooray!
Look out the window, and all I see is March. Windy, rainy, high of 50 deg. Rats, I guess I'll go to the gym...........again. Where oh where is my summer?
Thanks for listening to my rant.

A linear least-squares fit of my weight loss and bodyfat say I'm right on track for my end-of-year goals, dropping a steady, if unspectacular, 2 lbs a month.

A look at the bike log says I lost a little ground on my cumulative riding goals while moving cross-country. I'm 5 miles a week off of the rate I'd maintained this spring in San Diego, but that was 10 miles/week better than my original goals for the year, and I'm slowly catching up.

Temperature outside in Manassas, 75 F. Was closer to 80 earlier in the week. Too much wind, getting some rain, but I can't want it to be any further along. When we reach 95 F and 95% RH, with air so thick it feels like riding in wet lint, that'll be a Virginia summer.

Went on a ride in San Francisco yesterday afternoon, and the temperature hit 100. No big deal in most parts of the country, but in San Francisco anything over 85 is considered life-threatening. Rode across the Golden Gate Bridge at 7pm, and it was positively balmy, I wish I could ship you some of this weather...

My computer was showing SF at 94 degrees. I was down here in an air-conditioned office in L.A. thinking about the folks who work for our company in a non-air-conditioned building on New Montgomery Street. They work in an old building and the only thing they can do is open the windows, which doesn't help much when it's approaching triple-digits outside.

I'll never forget the first time I went to LA.. Perfect weather as far as I was concerned. I'm watching the news one night and the weatherman says "be careful if you're going to be outside tomorrow! It's gonna be a scorcher! Highs in the low to mid 80's!" uh right. scorcher? He needs to try a week in Texas...
Well now,mike mcmahon

we get our share of 100 degree days in L.A., especially in the inland areas. The beaches rarely, if ever, hit 100. However, travel east of downtown, to the San Fernando, San Gabriel, or Santa Clarita Valleys and 100 plus temps are common in July and August. Maybe not Texas hot, but hot nonetheless. Don't even get me started on the Palm Springs area: 110 and above through much of the summer.

Yesterday was a cool 45 degrees and rain, boy we needed the rain tho. Today on the other hand is a great 77 and sun. The one thing we have had a lot of this year is wind. I heard on the news the other day this is one of the windist years on record.

Not raining, but rain is predicted for this afternoon. The weatherman said the normal high (in Normal, IL) for today is 78 deg. It's 50 deg now. I am getting to know the trainers at the gym fairly well.
This thread should end tomorrow, as the weekend weather is looking up, and just in time!
See ya' on the road (tomorrow, not today)!!!
