    B: my weather app shows OFA is bike riding in 42 degree weather that feels like 38. When I hike, I always dress as if it is 10 degrees warmer because activity warms a person up pretty quickly and if you are overdressed, you will end up too warm.

    It is in the 30s this week with a fair amount of snow falling. Next week will be back in the teens. I see more and more dogs dressed up in coats and booties. I wonder how much they are truly needed vs the advertising campaigns and pet articles being published. I can see booties if the snow is wet and balls up between the pads on a dog’s feet but not if the snow is dry and feathery. My experience is that a dog’s coat adjusts to weather and grows in thick for winter. Obviously there are breeds that would need extra warmth but not the ones I have owned. The same thing is true of the “if you are cold, they are cold–bring them in” messages. Sadie is too warm in the house and is often outside lying in a snow pile rather than the protected, straw-packed dog house or sheltered dog bed.

    OFA Enjoy the ride! Around here today is damp and gray but not too cool in the upper 50s.
    More rain through the week and cooling off on Thursday.
    We hate missing the start of the Iditarod again this year but know that mom sure can’t walk the streets of Anchorage yet.
