The weather is getting nice, and by nice I mean 80's with low humidity. That is my ideal, but unfortunately my ideal does not last long here in New York City. In a few weeks, or even days, it will be 80's and 90's with 100% humidity.
Knowing this makes days like today bitter-sweet. Bitter because as I am trying to enjoy the nice weather, all I can think about is how it's going to get humid. Sweet because I can walk outside without a jacket and without getting drenched in sweat.
I still walk to work when I can, but a few times a week Pat is kind enough to let me hitch a ride on the back of his motorcycle.
At first riding in the city was a little scary, driving right up close to taxis and constantly having to be on the lookout for stray pedestrians. However, now it is just fun. Pat always compares driving a motorcycle in the city to driving in a parking lot. Yet, every once in a while we get an opening for a block or two and that's when I have to hold on tight as Pat's new pipes let everyone know, within a 5 block radius, THAT WE'RE COMING!
