It's Cold Today

My toes were cold on this morning's ride. The National Weather Service says it was -5°F (-21°C). I think it was at least -6° or -7°. They need to calibrate their equipment.

My electric socks didn't do squat to keep my toes warm. They may not be operating correctly. This is the first time I've worn them this year. I bought them last year and they never gave off much heat, but I could feel it. This morning, I couldn't feel a thing. I'll try some other batteries. Maybe I need a little gas-powered motor that generates more electricity for my tootsies. (Thats's supposed to be irony, although if I'm trying to be ironic, am I really being ironic?)

My ski goggles fogged over also. I had to take them off. My eyes have just thawed and feel a bit dried out.

Must purchase anti-fog solution for goggles. Must amputate toes.

The good news is that my studded tires worked nicely and my hands are toasty in my glittens (mittens with gloves built in).

Whoa. Dude, you are a rock star. A frozen and frosty rock star, but a rock star, nonetheless.

try the chemical toe warmers. I found the electric socks worthless.

I must say, I was surprised to see your bike this morning. my hands were in gloves in my car and they still froze.

irony is still irony when it is on purpose.
