The IceBike mailing list is for discussion of winter cycling. With temperatures well into the 90s across portions of North America this last week, icebikers have been talking about the heat. Pete Hickey tells us how hot it was in his part of Canada.
I was cycling through an area filled with farms this weekend. On one side of the road, were dairy farmers, with their cows in the field. On the other side were rows and rows of corn.
As I rode, it was getting hotter and hotter. I was glad that I had plenty of water.
It got so hot, that the corn started popping.
Now, this confused the cows. They looked over at all that popcorn over there (cows are pretty dumb). They thought it was snow, and they started freezing to death.
Yep, a hot day. Reposted with permission from Pete Hickey.
