Time for the Summer Gear

Well, it's officially hot outside here in the Valley of the Sun. This morning it was 70 degrees outside at 6:15, and the high for today is supposed to be 98 degrees. Phew.

Yesterday it was 90 degrees on my ride home, and I had on a heavy Carhartt jacket. It was, to be honest, somewhat uncomfortable.

So, as I do every time the temperature starts heading for an extreme, I wondered if I really want to deal with it this year. And, like every year, the answer is, "Hell yes."

This morning I dug my Joe Rocket Phoenix out of the closet, and I suspect the Carhartt will be going back in to the closet shortly. Exciting times.

And to think last weekend I was teaching a motorcycle class in the snow.

Of course, I'll think of you when our summer high is only about 80.

What happened to the Astoria move, by the way?

mq01 - We're only lucky for a little while, then the weather tends towards uncomfortable for six months. But feel free to come visit, I can show you some good roads!

Irondad - In short, the housing market crashed. The move will happen, just later than expected.
