the clothing choice for today -
Well, that's from last year's polar vortex, and i was feeling pretty lazy today so didn't bother taking a photo today since the look was near identiical and the only aging that might be discerned would be the fading of the hat.
I read somewhere on the internet that taking photos interfere with the formation of memories- i'm not sure how that works once memory loss sets in, but by that time i figure i will have already lost the photos so it's going to be a wash.
The ride today, in shrinkingly cold weather today, actually turned into a recreational ride of sorts, with my textbooks for the upcoming semester in the panniers and me having a great time taking an extra lap by the beach while my eyelids froze in place. I contemplated deploying the goggles mid-ride, but have an aversion to the 'captain spaceman' effect they have anyone but someone on skis - not that this look is any better.
Try it, you'll like it. As a side note, i am scheduled to give a winter commuter cycling class up in Houghton this winter, got some great riding tips for people to try out.
Stay warm - remember, there's no bad weather, just bad clothing, but if you've ever wondered if riding into the wind when the windchill is 20 below feels any cold, the answer is HECK YES.
