Boy howdy! I'm getting weary of the winter. (People talk about Global Warming like it's a bad
thing!) (I jest.)
Yesterday they said it was -3 at morning commute time; it was the first day that I really felt my bicycle commute was unhealthful. The hairs in my nose were icing up... my fingers and thumbs were tingly-cold... and if you took a deep breath it stung, due to combined cold and pollution.
(Boise is situated at the base of a mountain range; in certain conditions the air tends to stagnate for days at a time. I've commented about it before. The air in the valley is cold and polluted, but if you climb the mountain, you break free. I just checked the Bogus conditions - Bogus Basin being our nearby ski area - it's currently sunny and 46 degrees. Sigh...)
Well... it'll eventually break. Maybe by this weekend, they're saying.
