The twilight zone...

When I stepped out the door this morning at 7 am to leave for the Tour Dallas ride, I was sure that I had stepped back in time to a winter month. April in Texas is more than just a spring month - it's usually the beginning of that long stretch of hot weather that reaches into October. But not today. Monday reached 90, but today's temperatures barely got about freezing. As we hit mile 10 of the ride, there were even snow flurries falling! Some friends of mine were at Six Flags (an event planned long ago to celebrate Jono's 22nd birthday) and said the snow there was a little more than flurrying. Nothing accumulated (as per usual in Dallas), yet it was definitely a strange event for EASTER WEEKEND!
After one of the coldest rides of my life, I went home and crawled back under the covers to catch up on some reading. Then I headed back out for the second part of Jono's party - the Rangers game. I heard someone say that tonight's game was the coldest on record at the ballpark in Arlington, and I don't doubt it. Ironically, we were able to beat the snot out of the Red Sox, who should be used to temperatures such as this even if we are not.
Cold as it was, today was a good day. Got a good ride in and had fun hanging out with the friends. If only I didn't have so much work to do in the next two weeks...
