Apparently the jet stream has changed as we've taken a couple big steps toward spring here in Minnesota. We blew the top of the thermometer the other day when we broke 50 degrees. Lots of melting snow which is either a good thing or a bad thing depending on your point of view. No more skiing unless we get a big dumping of March snow and then you can't count on them firing up the groomer.
Of course, melting snow means non-winter bike riding is coming. Time to put a second tube in your jersey and maybe a patch kit as the sides of the roadways are depositing their glacial till of sand, grit, glass, fast food wrappers, and other assorted crap.
Oh yes...I promised trivia.
Last night was the first night in 4 months where it did not drop below freezing in Minneapolis.
There you have it. Enjoy the end of winter wherever you are.

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
