8 degrees and super windy

Yesterday, it was 39 and raining the whole day. In the middle of the night, the rain turned to an ice storm. The wind howled and kept me up for most of the night. The ice covered everything. The ice brought down trees, and powerlines and froze cars to the ground. This morning, the ice storm turned to a snow storm. The temperature dropped, and the wind has continued to howl.

The real temperature high was 8 degrees. The “feels like” temperature was -19degrees. Ugh. It was so cold, that it was almost impossible to go outside. If you did go outside, you could only handle being out there for a few minutes.

It is hard to believe that the first race is in Florida just 73 days away. That is going to be really tough for 2 guys from Wisconsin.

  1. I’m enjoying your blog, Joe. It makes me thankful for our 4 deg C and raining…uhhhh But seriously, in the January issue of Decline, Fabien Barel wrote a very inspirational story of his 2007 World’s experience. Enjoy and happy training! Merry Christmas!

  2. Come on Chrissy, don’t feed his ego like that. It’ll just take me that much longer to put it in check again.
