    Is it just me or is everyone else's calendars (paper and electronic) and clocks broken? Those things all told me it was January 12 and I was heading to work at my normal time, but I got outside and it seemed like I was leaving for work an hour early in March. Thinking back, these devices seemed to have started messing up prior to yesterday's commute home.

    The fog at the Roosevelt Island lot was fantastic!

    The fog was really cool. I plunged into Jones point park with my helmet light on high and couldn't see a damn thing!

    Some lanky dude photobombed my pic of the morning fog on the river.

    First, I am excited that my count on the Rosslyn counter was in the single digits two days in a row. I do not expect that to keep up. Second, I am surprised at both yesterday's number and today's number. I know today is a holiday, so far fewer commuters, in fact, I did not see another bicycle my whole commute. So at about 7:30am, I was number 8 on the monolith. What surprises me is that yesterday, at about 10am, it was warmer, and I saw other cyclists before and after Rosslyn, I was number 5.

    It was a cold commute, but a lovely sunrise and so little traffic. I would have preferred about 10deg warmer, but that is okay.

    Same here!!! (Although, I have been wearing them with wool socks the past few warmish rainy days.)

    Me: Northbound MVT approaching turn onto the 14th St bridge. Looked behind and saw no one, slowed down gradually, gave a long full-arm left turn signal, and made a gradual wide turn leaving plenty of room for someone coming downhill in the opposite lane.

    You: Appeared out of nowhere and screeched your brakes behind me, as though I'd done something unpredictable and interrupted your morning hammerfest.

    Dude, that was audacious and amateur. Just because you're fast doesn't mean you're not an idiot.
