Tomorrow’s weather prediction is for less than nothing.

In other words, they expect that the temperature will drop to -1 degrees F. as a big snow storm moves in tonight. It’s currently 47 degrees.

I made sure to get out for a walk today. So did everyone else. We all went down to the Pearl Street Mall.

This is the vibrant heart of my town and has been since 1976 when they closed Pearl Street between 11th and 15th Streets to vehicle traffic (except on cross streets). That opened it up to to pedestrians, buskers, and independent shops of all sorts.

Centennial Trail

The Centennial Trail is too easy. It it is absolutely level. And besides, it’s paved.

But today it suited my needs perfectly. “No climbing for two weeks,” says my doctor. And the fact that the trail is paved means I could forgo the dubious pleasure of scraping mud off my boots when I came back to my apartment.

It’s an attractive and pleasant place to walk, so I took it a lot when I first moved to Boulder, when the arthritis in my knee made climbing out of the question.

Walking to the Market‏

Today would have been a good day to do nothing more strenuous than to kick back and write an article that I have due at 3 p.m. this afternoon and then to read a book. The weather prediction was for clouds and wind.

But the winter seems to be finally over. The morning defied the weatherman with brilliant sun, just a slight breeze, and warmth.

So I walked to the market.
