How cold was it this morning

I am an early riser! I also love weather, mother nature, and stuff! So this morning, at 5 am the temperature on my weather station read 10 degrees F. Not the coldest of the year, but getting there.

How cold/warm was it around the same time where you live?

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. - quote attributed to Helen Keller.

I rode to work today and I believe the temp (at about 7:30 AM) was around 40F.

It's been much colder than that within the past few weeks. Has been down around 20F. Quite chilly.

I have no special cold-weather gear and I think it's interesting how much colder riding at 20F feels compared to riding at 25F.

As of 2 PM, it hasn't made it to 30 yet. It was 18 deg. here in Plainfield at 6:30 this morning. Damn! They called for upper 30's, too. If it had been, I'd be out on a ride right now.

Mid 50's F and drizzling. It can be warm or frigid, wet or dry, and combinations of all of them in Kentucky in winter.
