Once I started encountering runners and walkers, I slowed my roll. It got dark but the temperatures stayed around 60. What an excellent ride. Then two lights bounced just ahead of me. A bunny! In February. It was the legendary Punxatawney Bunny. As the story goes, if he gets caught in your wheels, we get six more weeks of winter (and you get a trip to the ER). Fortunately, I was too alert and he was too fast. So winter is officially over. Feel free to thank me with a cup of Joe or a cold beer.

Of course, now that I've jinxed us, we're screwed. Sorry about that.
