When I rolled out of bed this morning, here the temp was approximately 70 or 75 degrees F warmer than balmy locales in the Midwest. For the second day in a row I decided to ride in honor of my vortexed comrades in South Dakota, Minnesota, and Illinois. I scooted out the Greenway with the temperature up to 65. On the way back, I spotted a passenger airliner approaching the Santa Rosa airport (see upper left in photo) and imagined it must be full of frozen cyclists and their bikes fleeing the cryo-zone. Someone should have warned them we’re in for several days of rain.
