Everyone is talking about their unusually warm weather while here in Belgium it has been cold, rainy and incredibly windy. I rode for 3 hours today and came home drenched, frozen so badly my fingers tingled, and with a kink in my neck from riding sideways the whole time thanks to the hurricaine-level winds. Wind is fine, as long as it's predictable. But this wind whips around every which way, perpetually keeping me wondering at what moment i will be thrown off my bike.
The next days are supposed to be even worse, hovering at the 3°C mark during the day. We are even expecting snow. I have only seen snow twice in all the time i've spent here.
The last days Jonas has been threatening to switch his pump toiletries to spray can style, take them all outside and go ape-shit in an effort to help bring a bit of global warming our way. Sure, it's not politically correct but it's a nice thought nonetheless.
