That was the temperature yesterday morning, air and water, when Don attempted to do a 1.75 mile Lake Michigan swim event. The event was cancelled due to the possibility of, imagine this, hypothermia!
I actually saw someone running yesterday morning with tights and a hat with the ear flaps down! Let's see, what month is this?? That's carrying it a little too far. Must have been an out-of-towner: we don't wear tights around here until January!
My planned bike ride was going to be cold, and I really wasn't into it mentally, but I set out with good intentions, only to have the whole thing thwarted by: 1. construction of a bridge overpass right on the bike path, meaning they totally blocked the bike path and the road surrounding it with their trucks and heavy equipment, and 2. a fatal accident on (next to actually, a shared, closed off road) the bike path--a car crash that is. So that whole area was blocked off with the investigation. Creepy. Glad I didn't find the car! So I didn't get far, and instead headed back to the park and chatted with people I haven't seen in a while. Then I went to the gym with the intention of swimming but ended up doing 1 hour on the elliptical instead! Didn't expect to do that.
This change in weather around here is always inevitable this time of year. It always seems to happen about 2 weeks before school starts back up, and then when school starts, summer returns. I don't expect it to be cold next week in Louisville though! I still need to get cell numbers and any other info from those bloggers I hope to meet up with, so watch for my e-mail!
