We were about 8C in Halifax this morning - had a nice ride on the Peggy's Cove loop and encountered very little traffic. Warmed up to ~10C by mid afternoon. Few days of rain coming up but thankfully no snow ... may take snow tires off and put away shovels this week.

Had to ride today but did not last long, just too cold.

Surprised the audio did not catch my teeth chattering :)

Left home this morning when it was a balmy +2C on my new to me Stelvio. Rode until my hands hurt (no heated grips or hand guards yet) then stopped at Tim's. A hot chocolate (makes great hand warmer ) and a chat, then I'm on my way again. Repeat until the temp rose to +5 or 6C. All good at that point.

Snow and -10C yesterday in Sudbury. Today, the sun was shining and about +4C. I said I've had enough with this late spring and got my FJR and my little trail bike out.

The ride from their storage to my place is about 25km by highway. The FJR, no problem. The little trail bike, sweet jeebuz and I just about froze my nuts off!

But there out now and the season for me has officially begun. First trip of the year is down to SE Ohio/WV the first weekend of May! That's calling to close!

I left home at about 11:30am made my way via the back roads to Aliston. I ate some poutine, first time, god it was good, and that kept me warm for the ride home, Gravel about half the way. Come on spring. This time last year it was truly hot. This year the snow and rain in the north is causing tons of flooding.

Good news: It's raining / melting.

Bad news: It's raining / melting.

Highway 11 at Huntsville, yesterday (one of a few places this happened):

Wholly Chit Batman, those flood pics are depressing. That area has some of the best riding the lower part of the province.

On a positive note it will delay the global warming nutcases from crying drought for a few more weeks :)

I wish everybody in the area well.
