Daylight Savings Time will begin at 2 a.m. on Sunday, leaving people whining about their biological clocks and feeling entitled to accidentally walk into work an hour late Monday morning.
I have spent the last 6 months anxiously waiting for Daylight Savings because, starting next week, riding after work will be possible. Theoretically. But this is Michigan. I followed a snowplow into work this morning at well below the posted speeds. Snowplows are tricky to pass. I walked into work late. And cold.
All this after reading Mary’s blog over breakfast; a blog filled with wonderful pictures of rides under sunny blue California skies. That’s fine. There are signs that winter is coming to an end. I will be in Traverse City for the Mud, Sweat, and Beers race in May. And following snowplows will be like a dream where you wake up and quickly forget what it was that you dreamt, like watching your breath vapor disappear as quickly as you exhale in winter. I’m as optimistic as ever.
