I got kind of a late start today. I didn’t want to get out from under the covers because the house was cold. Last night it got down to 34-degrees (F) outside and the wind seemed to be blowing that air through our windows. I did get up though, and I turned the thermostat up a few degrees. I drank my usual three cups of coffee, I took Diggity for a walk, I did a few errands for The Feeshko who is still in recovery from her knee surgery, and I took my car in for an oil change.
Then, and only then, did I get out for my bike ride. I knew it would probably be a short one because I saw some dark clouds moving in. I dressed appropriately for the imminent rain. Also for the cold. I wore my wool cap, gloves, and three layers over my torso. (And yes, Old Grumbleface, I still stubbornly wore shorts. After all, I have a reputation to maintain. Long shorts, though, not my normal short shorts. HA!)
It was up to 39-degrees when I started. Within a block it started raining along with little hints of snow. A couple blocks later . . .
It’s okay. Fifteen minutes later that sleet turned to a regular cold rain and I was able to make it to the post office and back.
