Looks like rain this Weekend

I swear, it must be the law here in Indiana to have rain over Memorial Day weekend.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I suppose dodging lightning strikes will be a good motivator!

But I'll try to get some riding in between storm cells.

Same here, I have to keep the miles up and taper later in the week before the tour. Meantime, I'm pulling a loaded trailer around to keep up the legs!

We've had over 15" of rain here this month. In Monday there was an article in the paper about the recent "100 yr. flood" that we just had. Two days later, we had another 100 year flood. (not kidding)

This is Kansas, the state that was once thought to be a desert, buy the first explorers. I swear since the first of the year it has been a major challenge to ride. I am a morning rider, and it has rained or snowed countless mornings this year. It is almost unbelievable. We have chances of rain for as far as the weather man can predict still.

I don't think it will ever stop.

God I wish, we're still on fire. Smokey, is what one's neighbors name their cat, it should never have to be used as a modifier to describe weather.
And for that matter, fire, is also a damned poor way to describe weather too.

Send it here. The grass is so dry that you'd think it was August already.
