Per dasmith44's request I am submitting this thread for his approval.

One of the things us northerners look forward to is "Indian Summer" which is defined as several days of warm and mild weather after a hard frost. Well, we've had quite a few hard frosts so,........

Hey Mother Nature! You forgot to give us our "Indian Summer"!

First of all, October high temperatures on average, here in Michigan, are 62. For the whole of October, we never got a temperature above 57 and most temps were in the 40's and 50's with some in the 30's.

Secondly, it is now November where our average high is supposed to be 49. Outside right now it is 24 with snow on the ground.

Do you feel sorry for me?

Really, this used to be the best time of year for farmers markets, with their cider and freshly picked apples. A great time of the year to get out and ride the bike, in the bright sun and crunchy leaves.
The strange thing is that for the last three years or so, we have, and are, experiencing an abnormally
warm early November; go figure.

I didn't get a single apple cider ride this year. Every potential cider ride was rained out.

Temps are not much above freezing here in Toronto and there were flurries when I went out to run some errands this afternoon. I'm figuring riding season is over for me until next year.

I believe was more worried about if Noah was building and ark and which 2 bikes I wanted to bring along, as there has been that much rain. A few warmer days, like 50s, if it was nice it was usually too good to be true and it rained as a rule.
