cold shuts down Tucson

Winter Motorcycle Riding

No, the city didn’t close down but I came down with a really lovely cold and wasn’t well enough to make the trip. I was all packed and ready to go but had a conference call to take first thing. I figured that was fine because it would also give things outside a chance to warm up from 29 degrees. As the conference call went forward I felt progressively worse and when the call concluded I felt like the only option I had was to unpack, stay home, and stay warm.

So, almost a week later my cold is winding down, the weather at home is glorious, and I’m doing some December commuting. Right about now I’m pretty glad Al Gore invented global warming since its allowing me to ride my bike deeper into the year.
