Something I Must Remember...

That when it is a balmy 40° F out (4° C), when the wind is going at 22 mph (with up to 32 mph gusts) and one is riding a bike at a leisurely 10 mph, the wind chill takes the temperature down below freezing.

It was a good thing I had my big down parka and wool scarf on as I rode to help in Jet's class this morning. It *was* sunny, so that was nice, and on the way home I didn't have to pedal at ALL, the wind just blew me home. That was fun. *giggles*

I am realizing that my thermostat is now broken, since 40 feels WARM to me, now. Yeesh.
