Curses, foiled again!
Sunday, March 30, 2014
Two days in a row, my great plans for a long walk have been foiled by Mother Nature. What I know: it's still March which does not mean spring hereabouts; I should suck it up and "enjoy"(?) walking no matter what, and last, but not least, the forecast, the doppler, the thermometer, do not accurately portray what is happening outside!!
Both days I checked said information sources and dressed what I thought was appropriately to be comfy. Both days I got no more than half a block away when I realize a) it's starting to rain (yesterday) and I had chosen a down over a water-resistant jacket and b) I forgot to check the wind chill (today)! Thus, even though it's 37 degrees and I had my hood up and jacket buttoned to my chin, the wind was sneaking in the cracks, the dog's ears were blowing straight back, and my fingers were freezing.
We did push on, chose a different route than previous days. Extra points for persevering and walking into the wind.
