It was a bit scary driving. And it continued like that for about 1.5 hours. It was messing up all kinds of trick or treating plans in the area. It seemed to be not so bad after 6:30 or so, but still windy.

Clear and no wind this morning, but chilly out as we got below 40 again for the second time this season.

463 miles for October. Almost 4,700 for the year. Another 8-900 miles will put me around 5,500 for 2019. I keep thinking one of these years I'll get closer to 6,000, but between holidays, vacation, weather, and other needs, there are too many days I don't ride.
that is still nothing to complain about. Good mileage none the less. I hear you. I have to drive almost all Wednesdays and that really cuts down on my mileage. Now it is dark on the way in and dark on the way home.

I saw 28F this morning and did not wear toe warmers or at least put some plastic in there. Toes have been tingling all morning. Should be dark on the way home... winter riding here we go. I could not find a pair of gloves this morning so I left later than I wanted too. FINALLY found them in the back of my jacket.
