Today we had a little of everything.  This morning we started with 33 degrees and full sunshine.   It looked like it was going to be a pretty nice day.  Then as we got out into the open, flat areas we started feeling the winds (11-29 mph for the day).  Still, not a big deal.  As we got further into the ride it seemed to get windier and cloudier.  Towards the end of the ride we had some frozen precipitation for a few minutes but it was very light.    Overall, it was a pretty good day but we had to earn every mile we covered as the winds picked up. 

Oh!  I forgot that I did something really stupid.  Forgot my helmet and had to do the ride without it.  I felt so naked (and cold).
