  1. From my own experience overcast 55 F is not too bad. It's much better than hot and dry.

    I'll keep an eye on that run today - though my internet connection at home is still not really good. :(

    1. Yes, cool is better than hot. So far, looks like the rain may hold off!

      I'll be updating his splits as I get them here.
