    What's the windchill factor in AZ right now, AZ?
    DJ may know servers, but he obviously doesn't know shit about car batteries in the southwest.

    -30 Windchill, what should we do?-dscn0989.jpg

    During the long cold weekend, air temperature got to -25, by mid-day Saturday it hit a high of 25. Not quite sure the phenomenon, except for some deep red to the Sunset later.

    Lowest actual air temp here was -14F with wind chill down to -41F. It's in the 20's right now. In about a week, I'll be in Florida. Currently, forecast highs looks like mid-70's. Should be a fun temperature shock to the system. Will be down there about 8 days, mostly in Orlando, but also a few days on the Gulf Coast. Wonder how cold it'll be back here when I come home. going to have to pack both summer stuff and winter stuff unless I want to freeze my nuts off walking to/from the car.

    Full leg warmers, Nike turtleneck base, LS jersey, Mid weight fleece, ear cover, and it was bracing in AZ. around 60 by the time I was done.


    Oh, and shorts...

    Is that -30 windchill corrected for the new values concerning heat loss? Apparently, the pair responsible for the wind chill factor grossly overestimated the heat loss in their wind chill calculations.
    Recently saw a bit on the news about a electro-thermal out fit that would fit the bill nicely for the cycling types. Looks kinda like a long underwear ninja outfit.
    The real advice is layers and a warm cup of ______ upon returning to the hut. Otherwise, HTFU and go ride it.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I was looking at Cyclelicious's post above and it reminded me of my fall last night. Yes it was 2a.m. And my dog needed to go out to use the facilities. A nice 2 degrees F. and snowy conditions. I let him out the front door and stepped out a few feet and BAM I was on my ass in a split second. Quite a rude awaking that was.

    Under the fresh 2" of snow was a nice layer of ice, kinda like a booby trap for robbers.

    I'm glad the -30 degree windchill is finally over. That was miserable.
