Warm and windy morning after some overnight rains. About 64F but with a head or cross wind for the majority of my ride. Just keep pedaling.

30 degrees colder this morning compared to yesterday. Clear and no significant wind though. Traffic was extremely light with the holiday and all.
I've been reading about the snow, ice and wind mess going on up north. No travel advisory in Fargo. "Just don't go outside!" Intense stuff. Y'all stay safe up there!

Dark but clear this morning, in the upper 30's. Riding the trail through the Arcata Marsh is the best part; even though it's dark, I can see the sky reflected in the ponds, and hear the birds waking up. It's nearly deserted at 6:30; sometimes I'll run across a jogger or another cycle commuter, but mostly it's just me and the quiet and the dark. Riding on the highway under the eucalyptus I only had to stop twice to take branches off the shoulder. The only time those overly bright LED car headlights are useful is when the side wash lights up the shoulder so I can look for oncoming obstacles without having to blast my own light. Got off the highway and onto the trail (different trail, sort of), chilled and sweaty (gotta find a better jacket), arrived at work a few minutes later to a lusciously warm building and hot tea with breakfast.

Lather, rinse, repeat, throwing in fog now and then.
