Weather or not

The wind is blowing. There is a high wind advisory for our neck of the woods through midnight.
WINDS WILL SHIFT TO NORTHWEST BETWEEN 5 PM AND 7 PM ACROSS RHODE ISLAND...CONNECTICUT...WESTERN AND CENTRAL MASSACHUSETTS AND SOUTHWEST NEW HAMPSHIRE. FARTHER EAST...WINDS WILL SHIFT TO THE NORTHWEST BETWEEN 6 PM AND 8 PM ACROSS EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS...WHICH INCLUDES THE GREATER BOSTON AREA AND CAPE COD AND THE ISLANDS.

AT THAT TIME WINDS WILL REACH 25 TO 35 MPH...WITH GUSTS REACHING 50 TO 55 MPH. WINDS WILL DIMINISH FROM WEST TO EAST AROUND OR SHORTLY AFTER MIDNIGHT.

It was almost 60 degrees again today. This is not what one would call "normal" New England winter weather. But you know, times have changed. Recall it was a year ago, we got buried with a blizzard.

The weather changes are here to stay so runners need to adjust. Bundle up, change time of day, change direction, whatever works to keep on running.

And hope the forecast is accurate: that the wind will dimish overnight. I got a long run scheduled in the morning and it would not be fun in this wind.
