I didn't even need the Thor Pack Jacket over my mesh jacket this morning. It was in the 70F's when I left the condo.
I think in the Autumn and in the Spring I am even more aware of how my commute changes character every day. I am not completely sure why this is, but I am certain a large part of this has to do with the light. It is now almost still night when I leave the Condo. It seems just last week the morning was still bright.
The shortening days are also making an impact on my after work activity. Tonight when I went inline skating I was only able to get about forty minutes in before the trail closed. Soon the time will change from Daylight Savings time back to Standard time and skating will be a weekend only activity. Every year I have a plan to keep my activity level up during the winter months . . . and most years I have not been as successful as I would like. Time will tell what this winter will bring.
But, it isn't winter yet. I still have some week night skates. And, it will be a while before I'm riding to and from work in darkness.
|Took this just as I ended my skate tonight, but before moonrise.|
- 71F(22C) & mostly cloudy for the ride to work.
- 91F(33C) & the National Weather Service says it was still mostly cloudy for the ride home, but I sure saw a lot of sunshine.
