Gonna be cold tonight, dropping into the 30's. Not too bad, but enough that it's just about time to pu the bikes away for the winter.

You see, that is what is killing me. I used to live in Vagas, so was pretty used to nice warm temps. This year the cold moved in quicker than usual for this area. Though it doesnt get as cold as our northern friends, the freezing mark or near freezing mark is too cold for me. Cant ride the bike, cant drop the top. But I can crank up the Jetta's seat heaters to number 5 :twisted:

If it's any consolation (yeah, I know, it's not :lol: ), I've already used my Jetta's seat heater a few times when leaving work (when the sun goes down in the fall/winter, so the temp!). And, FWIW, in the northern part of the state, it gets below freezing at night and the daytime high is around 50-60°F.

Could be worse. It's 61f, a slight be windy, and I'm stuck in a room with very little ventilation and a guy that farts a lot. :shock:

An no, I'm not Mr. farty pants. At least not today I am not.
