Too early for flapjacks?

Date: February 2
Mileage: 20
Ride type: Commute
February mileage: 40
Year to date mileage: 287

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today. So that theoretically means six more weeks of winter. This is one time where the internet really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather. This year, I'm not sure the term "more" is applicable. This morning the slushy whatever had frozen to ice, but by afternoon with highs in the 40s the ice had melted and the trails were clear. Even in Eagan, the land of unplowed trails, most of the snow was clear. It's weird. Mrs. says that February is going to be a cold one. I'll believe it when I see it.

Yeah, I'm suspicious too, but I heard the same thing. Apparently in mid-month it's supposed to suddenly start being COLDER than normal. I can hardly wait.
