I'm only now beginning to warm up a little. At first glance, a temp of 18F doesn't seem that cold, but riding 30mph on a scooter through such a temp makes one freeze to death! Holy schmoly, it's cold. And my dumb helmet face-shield was fogging over, because my helmet is old and crappy and needs to be replaced, so I had to open it enough to increase airflow over the exposed skin of my face in order to see the road ahead. Holy Jesus and Mary, save me from this Ninth Level! I should mention that I only had to ride about two miles home from the KU carpool place (after dropping off Nate; it's cool that we both teach at Edwards on Mondays), but it felt like riding through a thousand miles of frozen wasteland, blind, in the dark.

On the other hand, the Crossfire would have spun out on the ice.
