Well the temperatures finally rebounded and if anything, are now above where they should be!  A very pleasant morning for a ride and mostly uneventful.  That is, other that the encounter with a sleepy bird.  While riding out towards Transit on Donner a bird suddenly flew up from the road in front of me.  Apparently it must have been nesting in the middle of the lane.  This road very rarely has cars on it, but still an odd thing for a bird to do.  Anyhow, as he flew away in a panic he came up right in front of me.  I ducked because he literally was right in front of my face as I was laid out on the aerobars.  I'm glad I did as I felt him bump along the left side of my helmet.  No idea what he was thinking, but very odd for me as it was still very dark at the time.  Alas, I live to ride again!
