Too Damn Cold.

My office has a small electronic weather monitoring station on the roof of the building. We've set up a small webserver within the intranet that allows us to check the observations in real time from any computer on the network. Right now the wind is a steady westerly at 26km/h (about 16 mph), which ain't bad.

The mercury, however, seems to be stuck at the -27°C mark (or maybe it just froze there). For my friends out there who haven't fully embraced the metric system yet, that's almost -17°F. Of course, with that bit of wind coming in from the West, it dips down to -40°C with the windchill. Uh-huh, that's the break-even point between the Celsius and Fahrenheit gauges. -40°F my friends.

Anybody out there in warmer climes with a spare bike and an empty bedroom?

No matter where you are, that is too cold to ride. And I thought Seattle was cold lately. At least I've been able to get out and ride 3 times so far this month. It won't be long now.....
