Broke out the Tri-Flex.

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 triflex 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.

Last night over here (Redmond/Woodinville) was nothing compared to Tuesday morning. It was a light drizzle when I left Redmond, and then about half way to Woodinville the skies opened up and started trying to beat me to death with rain. I usually ride the wide shoulder up the hill on 175th/Woodinville-Duvall Rd, but the rain pouring out of the side streets filled the shoulder with a raging 2" deep whitewater rapid.
It's been at least drizzling rain for most of the week over here.
