Freeze Yer Haboobs Off!
It was 12 degrees in town when I started, and 17 degrees as I drove home afterwards. It was really beautiful up at the reservoir, and there was a slight breeze blowing ice crystals in the air. Not sure how cold it was up there with the wind, but my face froze running into the wind. I had my neck gaiter and covered my face with it.
Only a few easy miles tomorrow and I should have a solid 80 mile week behind me, with speed, tempo and hills, off to a good start.
On the other side of the world, Australia is having record heat, including haboobs. Here, we're freezing our haboobs off. My Badwater crew would say, don't forget your thermal ha-bra.
This cold weather is supposed to last for a week, the temperatures should return to normal, mid-40s, by the end of next week. The days are getting longer. It's spring.
