Definitely A Jacket Day

Yes, I rode to work today.

The morning temperatures were a little different from yesterday. The windchill was near the freezing mark. Of course, as I walked up the Courthouse steps I got the traditional question: "Aren't you cold?" I'm amazed at how often this question is asked by people who aren't dressed for the weather and look like they're freezing. I want to say, "No I'm not and if you were wearing a decent coat neither would you be!" But, instead I say, "No, I've got good gear."

Unlike yesterday when shirtsleeves were the norm, today was definitely a jacket day.

Of course, a hoodie and a poncho works well, too.

I am grateful for a full week of work with no days off, no funerals, or no trips. I was ready for a good old boring, run of the mill, and totally generic week.

Ride safe and, insha'Allah, I'll be back next Monday.
  • 40F/4C and overcast for the ride to work.
  • 50F/10C with lots of sunshine for the home ride.
