The weather here should be near that one day next week. I've joked that I may cancel l my cardiologist appointment that day to go for a ride.

It was around that temperature when I went out for my Christmas Day morning ride earlier (20 deg C). Very nice. 😎

Not near 68, but at least it's getting into double digits now (much better than some negatives we had). 50s up to maybe 60 by the mid to end of the week. Crazy! Happy Festivus and Happy New Year (yeah, it's early) to everyone!

Might see 32 this afternoon, light breeze and sunshine. Going to get in my Christmas ride before I start the actual cooking.

It is warmer today. To put this into perspective, it often is significantly cooler here in the summer.

Not jealous at all....I had a brutally hard cold very windy ride very early this morning which lasted 4.5 hours. The extra effort and adversity that I experienced was well worth it. I feel great.

68 is no big deal. We had lots of 68* days in September.

Two weeks ago it was 354F and tonight it's 57. From unseasonably cold to unseasonably warm, because it can.

OK, I will stop complaining about the heat.

Must be earthquake weather.

Dang, dude, 5" is a lot of rain. 😲 If it was snow, it'd be closer to 5', I guess. 🤔☃️

It got up to 54F here, and I had to peel off some extra layers, doing a little 5-mile ride. 😎

Santa Crud "mountains". It isn't that unusual here. But I did get a little bit of water intrusion in the garage. Thankfully it did not come anywhere near to the bikes.

I keep saying we need a climate subforum.

By region, of course.
