West Texas isn't so bad. Huge swings in temperature, as is characteristic of what is basically a desert environment. In the last two weeks we've had lows as low as 20F and highs as high as 78F. I wimped out one or two days this month when a 30 mph North wind made the 20F a wind chill of about 12F, but otherwise, I've ridden to work every day. Unlike So Cal, we do need the long sleeve wool jerseys, long wool socks, wool winter trainers and wool caps and gloves most of the winter, though. But we don't need to resort to rollers - and too much rain is never a problem. In fact, It's bad charma here to complain about rain - one risks angering the rain gods.


Jerry Moos cool but clear today in Big Spring, West Texas, USA
