Unseasonably Cold?

May 20th, 2010 at 06:59 am

I am still adjusting to the weather here, but I don't remember May as a month of endless rain. I remember it as Hotter than Hades! Not that HOT is normal, but it seems we get at least one or two heat waves every May.

So, I am enjoying the pleasant weather (not crazy hot) but am kind of over the rain, all the same!

Today I did my first a.m. bike ride, this year. I could stand to lose a few pounds. The secret, for me, is just to be active every day. So, I am hoping summer will help motivate me.

I was wide awake at 5:30 am (not unusual for me) and the sun was peeking out, so I Decided this morning was a good of time as any.

The air was SO COLD!!!!! Bah. It was slightly humid and I didn't feel overly cold, but my ears and eyes (if you can believe it) were FREEZING. It took me a while for my eyes to adjust to the cold. This was something new.

It got a little better as the sun rose and I felt some warmth.

I thought I was just being overly whimpy, but the I checked the weather when I got back. "Feels like 45 degrees." Holy Hell!

This girl does not do 45 degrees. Gah! I mean, that is a winter low temp. WINTER!

So, I was awake, and the sun was out. But next time I think I will hit the gym. Or at least check a thermometer before I head out. There is a reason I don't do dawn bike rides in the winter. So my eyes don't freeze?

What can I say - I am a California girl.

Anyway, I did warm up a bit and it was a nice ride. I saw a TON of jack rabbits. I will usually see a couple. Today I disturbed a lot of them, and saw some little baby rabbits. Too cute!

I didn't see a soul outside - it was divine!

    The weather is ridiculous here in Northern Coastal California as well. By this time we are usually having some nice weather. Not so far. My poor garden!

    The weather here (MO) is the same. I'm having a hard time getting enough dry days to work in my garden. Three days ago I had to put on my winter coat to walk one block.

    I'm a Delaware girl and I probably wouldnt do that temp either! When I did the Race for the Cure the other week it was 49 degrees and extremely windy. Too cold for me!

    The weather has been ridiculous here in MA too. A bit of rain, but WIND - every single day. This is not Chicago! Trees keep going down everywhere - blocked one subway line yesterday, another today. One even went down in the parking lot of my office a couple weeks ago. All the water combined with all the wind is wreaking havoc on the trees.
