What a difference a day makes, or in this case a week, less even. It’s the weather.
Understand, I’m not complaining about the weather, I know that ours is generally a temperate climate and many of you have it a lot worse than us. But last weekend I was riding in sunshine. Granted the day started out frosty, but it warmed up and I rode the day away in bright sunshine.
By Monday evening it was back to rain, By Thursday we had snow and freezing temps, roads were a little dicey. Friday was a seriously wintry day; never got above freezing, snowed most of the day, of course the freeway was a skating rink (fresh snow on frozen slop). We took the back road home from work, the little Subaru did just fine.
Yesterday (Saturday) not so bad, still freezing but no more snow … until last night. We woke up this morning (Sunday) to a couple 3 more inches of snow.
If April is the cruelest month, then February must just be Jimmy Cagney: a short guy trying to prove tough.
