The View from My Really, Really Cold Handlebars...and a few words

It.
Was.
Cold.
Today....really cold.

Yup. That's a screen shot from my computer as I was getting ready for my (thankfully) very short commute to work this morning. 5f = -15c. How cold was it, you may wonder. Well, the only part of my body exposed was the area around my eyes (my pugs recently chewed my goggles, which I would wear in extreme conditions). Because of the cold my eyes were watering. And as I blinked my lashes were actually freezing together. I never had that happen before. The below image was taken this evening on my way back from the community center. The streets seemed empty even though the temps made it up to 12f/-11c.


Urban Simplicity.
