So that's what a cold front feels like!

Saw a gap in the rain on weather radar this morning, so I hopped on the bike and took off. 40 minutes and 10 miles later, the cold rain caught me half way to the office, and the temperature had dropped 15 degrees. Receptionist asked me, "Did you pedal enough to stay warm?" Yes, barely. Or almost.

In some 15 years of bike commuting I haven't seen anything quite like this. I've seen thunderstorms drop the temperature 20 degrees for a hour (and I've been forced to take cover because of the hail that comes with it!), and then it pops back up. But I haven't caught the edge of a front, that drops the temperature half way to tomorrow morning's forecast lot, in such a brutal fashion. Have I just been lucky?
