Tornados whipped through Arkansas killing 13 on Tuesday. Fortunately, the tornados were 60 miles away, but I ended up riding through the storm.
It was dry when I left work, sprinkled a little and then quit. But then the lightning and thunder started, surrounding me with flashes behind, ahead and to the left. I was 2/3 of the way home and stopped at a stop sign to take a drink of water. Then the rain really began. By the time I was across the intersection, I was soaked to the skin. That hasn't happened since I was a teenager in Florida. I was extremely wet by the time I made it home.
The next day my front wheel seemed to have been haunted by Orville Redenbacher and it sounded like a popcorn popper. I thought it was the spokes. But checked in in the mechanics forum and they said it was possibly that the grease had gotten washed out of the bearing. So I'll get some white grease and lube the wheel bearings this weekend.
