Nope I didn't ride to work today.
And . . .
It was a beautiful day. It started coolish at 24F/-4C but by the afternoon the mercury climbed to very delightful 50F/10C. Why didn't I ride? More fallout from losing my keys. By the time I could leave the parking lot last evening the gate wouldn't open when I swiped my parking pass. This meant I had to leave the lot in a rather unorthodox way. I wasn't sure if the card reader would let me in this morning. Since the weather might be less than ideal tomorrow I decided not to put this potential inconvenience off until tomorrow when I could deal with it today. Of course, the reader recognized my card right off. At least I know there is no problem.
The sunset tonight was more smokey orange than fire,
What it lacked in intensity it made up for in longevity. It seem determined to hang on.
The major good thing about not riding today was not having to ride on the gunk the melt-em brine manufactures when it mixes with the oil on the streets. The trucks were out in force getting ready for our "snow event". Last I checked, the forecast was for less than an half of inch of accumulation possible. Oh well, I guess better to be safe than sorry.
And, by the way, I still haven't found my keys. I suspect I never will.
