Today was the craziest commute I could ever imagine. I was home all day surfing the internet. Outside it was light showers throughout the afternoon. Well, 5:00 comes around and I head out for my commute(in the rain). I am dressed from head to toe in rain gear(Marmot Precip Jacket, Pants and those rubber shoes called Crocs). As I am riding in a torrential downpour, I hear the sirens go off. Not an ambulance, not the police, not the fire department. No, it was the tornado sirens. I am riding my bike when there is a tornado touching down not too far away. It was insane. Wind like crazy(Great tailwind). Cars are pulling over and looking at me like I am crazy. It was so awesome. Well I get to work and everyone is looking at my like I am beyond crazy. I actually think in hindsight that I am a bit crazy. But I am safe at home. My home is ok, the tornados did quite a bit of damage around my town. I was actually not even planning on riding to work today though. The only reason I did was because I had a talk with my dad on the phone about me selling my car. He told me how crazy I was and that I had a good vehicle. He said that in this day in age, every person should have a vehicle. I said, I do. Its my bike. He was not pleased one bit. I told him that this was a personal lifestyle decision for me. He said, well I bet you wont ride in the rain. Boy was he ever wrong . Well, enough said. Here are some pics for everyone to enjoy.
