Elmwood Park celebrates our annual left-overs party.  We had a lot of people come in throughout the night, and prepared and consumed a ridiculous amount of food.  There was a lot of good food to be had but little in the way of left-overs.  Our group consumed an entire turkey.

Biked downtown, ate more then I should have, returned home, and continued work on the GUI to A.Q. Squares.  I have the entire 4 day weekend to work, and I plan on using it.

This is Pokie trying to explain to me how mass-energy equivalence can be derived—that is, why E=mc2.  While I understand the implications of mass-energy equivalence, I didn't understand where mathematically it came from.

Pokie, Pluvius, Amy, and I met up for dinner at my favorite Indian restaurant across the street.

Short week this week, but with rain forecast for all three work days I won't get in any riding.

The weather finally remembered it is November and temperatures took a dive last night.

Yesterday at work I took a look at the number of hours I had worked for the week to calculate what time I should leave for the day.  I had around 2 and a half hours to work to finish off the week.  I don't like to work less than 3 hours on Friday because when I bike in my cycling clothing needs that much time to dry.  So I decided to stay late and work all the hours last night.  So today I had the day off.  I still got up and biked down to State Street for breakfast.  Afterward I went to a coffee shop and worked on the laptop for awhile.  I've ridden to work everyday except Monday this week, and my legs are letting me know it.  275 miles already this month, which is well above the 109 I did last year in November.  It was good and warm this afternoon, but high winds brought in a cold front and the temperature plummeted as the day went on.

Unseasonably warm today.  When I set out this morning it was warmer than when I biked home last night.  And when I left in the afternoon it was 64 °F (18 °C).  Mid November and I rode home in shorts.
Pictured is a view of Lake Wingra as seen from hill on Edgewood Avenue just before sunrise.

Rode again today as I have an appointment downtown in the evening.  It is much easier to get around Madison on a bicycle than with a car.  This picture was taken just before sunrise.
