    "Well its flooding down in Texas..."

    and I'm getting tired of roller rides.
    Suns out now, 75 degrees, 100% humidity
    and I'm stuck at work....AAARGHHH.
    Forecast for the up coming weekend
    (at Ride 4 Roses). . . RAIN (sigh).

    And it's so dry here I'm thinking of carring wash water to the garden. Really 100% humidity sounds awlful. I thought north Texas was dry?

    PopTart,

    They cancelled the Downtown Criterium, it costs too much to
    put on and the whole reason for the ride is to generate money.
    (story on LAF and testicular cancer on news this am).
    I can deal with the heat, and rain but the
    storms this past w/e dumped something like 3.6 inches
    of rain and had great gusting wind. given propensity for
    severe storms I'd rather ride the rollers than end up in OZ
    (no NOT Australia )

    Joe, Texas is pretty humid, more so down towards
    the coast. I used to think the same about Texas
    then I moved here. I lived in Northern Va for 16 years
    so the humidity here is not a problem!

    Lotek,

    Sorry to hear about the demise of the Crit. I always thought it was a cool way to expose the non-cycling masses to bicycle racing. Night time crits under the lights are always a good spectator event.

    Have fun on the ride and don't forget to eat plenty of tex-mex, drink plenty of Shiner and ride by the SRV statue on Town Lake.

    Spoke with a friend in Austin this morning and she said it was sunny and 60's. I'll cross my fingers for y'all for the weekend.

    Yeah.. Yeah... And you Texans listen to Dwight Yoakum...

    Actually, I play guitar [sort of like what SRV would sound like if he had one finger on his left hand] and Texas Flood is one of my fave blues tunes [along with Help me, Mannish Boy, Farther on Up the Road... well, you get the picture]. Seems strangely appropriate considering today's weather. Guess I'll get out to the garage and clean a bike or something...

    I actually like warm humid weather, and it does sound appetizing after the cold early-spring weather we've had. But I thought gee, I'd rather have snow than torrential floods like they've had in Kentucky and TEnnessee. You can shovel snow, it doesn't destroy your house, etc. And now most of it has gone- finally we've gotten some milder weather and it's melted. The downside, it's raining. But it's finally going to get warm and sunny and I'm going to go for my first real rde!


    Hey, maybe they should have the ride for the Roses here. The forecast for Sunday is 60 degrees and sunny!
