phil had it wrong

Punxutawney Phil was wrong: the 6 weeks since February 2 have had a lot more spring in them than winter, and the only reason I hadn't taken the Ciocc out before now was the wet. It was still wet on secondary roads, particularly in Bedford, so I skipped the bike path entirely, but boy am I glad to be biking to work again. Last year it was April 25 before I got on the bike, and not much of that was waiting for parts either: I like to wait until the second good rain after the last time the salt trucks go out. But we've had plenty of rain to wash the salt off the roads lately, and it has been quite a long time since there was enough snow to salt for.
