It's snowing in Boulder. 65 degrees yesterday, and WINDY. I did a 3-hour canyon / dirt road ride & wanted to lay down and die afterwards. I'm actually almost glad it's snowing; means I can take it a little easier.
65???!!!Wannabe

65? We haven't seen 65 since last summer! I know you used to ride here in the midwest (although south of here mostly) so you know what it's like: 9 months of winter and 3 months of bad sledding. Although I am proud to say that the average normal daily high has crept above 40 degrees so there is hope!

Nice to be in Florida! 80+ degrees, Sunny. What a great riding day!
Cold?? You don't know coldTed

Cold???? It's been averaging around -2 here for all of March in Alberta. In fact the AVERAGE for March so far is about 2 degrees. 2 days ago it was -25 at the International Airport. I am now happy we woke up today to only 5 degrees above 0. How’s that for being happy. Oh well on the long-range forecast I see the possibility of it getting to 40 or 45. Heres hoping.

Ok my weather rant is over:)

In the last three days, we've had 35 cm of snow, with more coming today. temps are going to be below freezing for the next several days, so we are starting our spring with more snow on the ground [and streets] than we've seen since December.

I just finished riding in the basement again. So far today we have had light rain, typhoon like rain, sleet, and snow so hard you could barely see across the street. Oh yeah did I mention the wind.
Tuesday was actually nice and I got outside for a short ride.
All too soon people will be complaining about the heat though.
I guess we're never happy.
24 this morning in SE Tennessee!!!Mike P

brrr. I was looking at my training logs last night; one day in January it was 74 degrees. Now here it is the end of march and it's 24. Mother Nature must be hittin' the bottle.
