Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!!

As uneventful as a Thursday morning 10-miler typically is, I thought I'd comment on the weather this morning. And also the fact that Cathy was too sick to join us. So, without the glue that binds our little group together, Dan and I met at Arie's as usual except this time instead of heading through Westlake, we ran the 2 miles down into the valley where there were less cars. Reason being, it was downright nasty out. Beautiful snowfall, but heavy enough to make for hazardous road/sidewalk conditions. I didn't feel like getting scooped up by a snow plow this morning. It was cold too. 26°F with 15 mph WNW winds. Wind chill made it feel like it was 13°F. I felt warm up until the last mile or so and it was my face that started to get cold. I need one of those balaclava things. They are pretty inexpensive and it can double as a ninja mask in the summer months!
