Well, for those in the Pac NW, break out your rain gear. The rainy season is making no bones of its arrival. My first cold and rainy commute of the season occured last night. Was cold enough (50F), I broke out my t*****x tights for the commute. It poured like cats & dogs almost the whole way. First heavy rain commute, with manymore to come. Now, I get to ride home. Thank Heavens for rain gear.
