I can't believe the weather we've been having here in March , yesterday was a high of 81 . I normally don't even thing of getting the bike out until the middle of April but I got it out last weekend . I rode yesterday and today to work . I moved to Ankeny in Dec. of 1996 , March 2nd 1997 we had a massive blizzard , it was so bad the street I lived on was blocked for 2 days . Cith snow plows couldn't clear the street , they had to bring in big end loaders with buckets because the drifts were up to 10 feet high . I'll take 80 degree weather in March any time .
