Wednesday, it was 55F. who knows.
This makes it somewhat difficult to select the appropriate riding gear. It almost seems like it's time to break out the summer weight gear.
The other thing that stands out, is how polite the drivers are being right now.
It's different enough to comment on; when I approach cars which are occupying the fast lane, at least 4 of them have voluntarily moved to the right to allow me to pass.
As long as that lasts, I make a point of giving them a wave of thanks -- that's one with all of my fingers. Positive reinforcement...... I know there's always going to be someone on either side of the divide that is suffering from cranial impact; I don't have to let that affect my process. If I can provide a 'good' example, maybe that will stick in someone's mind. Probably not, but it's better than dwelling on the negatives.

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "
