And . . .
The day started out gray.
We are still experiencing mild temperatures than normal. The average high temperature for August is 88F/31C. Today the high was only 75F/24C and more importantly the sun remained hidden behind the clouds. The sun here can be brutal.
I remember when I moved to Oklahoma everyone warned this Yankee to be careful of the sun. I learned the wisdom of this. It was definitely more intense than the sun I grew up with in Michigan. Here it is nearly as intense. It is something to be wary of and to protect oneself from. Today without the sun and with a breeze it was nearly chilly out.
There is lots of chance for rain this week. We'll see what comes.
- 68F/20C and overcast for the ride to work.
- 74F/23C and overcast for the home ride.
