Thursday Thoughts: It doesn’t take much.

Monday, I went on my (almost) daily bike ride. It was -5C, and the snow that had fallen over the last few days was packed on the road. Normally, this is ideal for winter biking—

Hold it. Isn’t it spring?
You would think, but it doesn’t look that way right now—

Anyhoo, there were no clouds in the sky, so the sun was in full force, making the hard snow almost unbikeable—

Hold it. Is that even a word?
No, but it should be.

Anyhoo, the 2 inches/5 centimeters of snow was soft, my tires sinking almost to the road, allowing the lack of traction to make my ride not very pleasant.

Tuesday. Same temperature (-5C)—
Hold it. Do you think they have forgotten the temperature already?

Well, if I change it, you will be featured less.
[silence]
That’s what I thought.

Anyhoo, the only difference was that there was a thin cloud cover. You could still see the sun, although it was a fuzzy ball in the sky. With that small difference, the biking conditions were . . . perfect.

Such a small difference makes such a large difference, and it really shows how delicate our planet really is.
