My weekends are 4-day weekends, a reward for working four 12.5 hour
days each week. Four out of my last five weekends have been wet. Four
beautiful days when I’ve got to go to work and four wet days off. Last
weekend was an exception as we had perfect weather.
I finished work at 5:30 this morning, this wet rainy morning, to the
prediction of the weather drying out by noon. O.K., this works…I
set the alarm for 11:30 A.M. and get in a nice nap. It’s a little dreary
when I wake up so I stall until about 1:30 pm then jump on the Volae
and head west. I almost got three blocks before the rain started back
up and it didn’t stop until…well it’s still raining. I ended up cutting
what would have been close to a 35 mile ride short to a 15 miler.
Tomorrow is supposed to be nicer so I’ll try again. Tuesday & Wednesday
we’re supposed to get heavy rains but the weather is supposed to
clear up on Thursday (my first day back to work). I think
my spirits are getting a little damp. Oops, that’s the drier buzzer…my riding
clothes are dry.
