Did another 2.0 miles to end the week
Today was a Yellow day (use moderation and common sense), and my wife and I went south from the trailhead at 100th South. The sky was overcast, and a slight wind was blowing. The mid-day temperature was in the low 30s (F). Not many people were on the path. I saw 3 cyclists, two runners and one walker. I didn't notice the wind until I turned around. I then immediately felt colder, indicating the wind was a north wind. I looked at tall grass and saw a slight movement, and I realized that any wind reduces the wind-chill factor. I wore gloves, and my fingers started feeling cold on the way back, but on the way out, my fingers felt fine.
