Short Sleeves, Bare Legs, and Baseball

We seem to have skipped spring and gone straight to summer! Last week I was wearing a light jacket in the morning, this week is tank tops. I'm kind of dreading the really hot weather. Hopefully this is just a fluke. It's been sunny and in the upper 80s. From what I understand, most of the eastern U.S. is having the same weather.

I went bare-legged for the first time this year, and my skin was blindingly pale. I also remembered that I will have to be a little more cautious about skirt length, since I won't have the extra coverage of tights and long coats. I think this is about as short as it should get, at least without some sort of modest under layer.
The other sign of spring, or maybe summer, was the Atlanta Braves opening day. There's some new player that everyone seems to be excited about. Not my thing, obviously. But the game caused a five hour traffic jam that extended well into midtown (3 or 4 miles away) on surface streets and much further than that on the highways. Drivers were angry, frustrated. I really felt bad for them!

  1. I ride my bike (or sometimes walk) to the baseball games in Baltimore, joyfully passing 20-45 thousand angry people in traffic. When the game is over I just jump on my bike and joyfully pedal through 3 miles of gridlock back to my apartment.

    Sadly, there are usually on 4 or 5 other bikes locked to the rack
