It was a wet snow. It was 34F/1C at 0650CST. It was perfect snowman and snowball weather. As I cleaned off my car I had one of those "Eureka!" moments. If I would have had Gore-Tex gloves when I was a kid I might never have gone back inside when the snow was like it was this morning. I remembered how with the gloves I wore as a kid after the third snowball my hands would be already wet and cold. This morning I pushed the snow off my car with my waterproof Gore-Tex gloves. I didn't even bother with the srcapper. My hands stayed dry and warm. It was wonderful.
The temperatures were forecast to rise to 40F/4C by afternoon. I could see no reason to doubt it. Once out the the neighborhood I suspected the roads would be wet and soaked with chemicals.
By evening I suspected they would be as dry as a bone.
There was absolutely no reason for me not to ride to work this morning, but something just didn't feel right. I trusted that feeling. Miss Billie got the day off.
- 34F/1C and overcast for the morning drive to work.
- 40F/4C with a few clouds for the drive home.
