Temperature at departure = 35° F (2° C)
When I left home, the same Weather.com site showed winds from the NNW at 26, gusting to 50 MPH. Perhaps this would be a good day to drive, not because the temperatures that will fall into the teens in the next couple of hours and single digits by the time I ride home ... just don't like the gusting winds.
Then I remembered, I'm heading south. Wheeeeeeeee!
[note to self for the ride home: there WILL be more branches and sticks on the path.]
