Playing in the rain

It was another foggy mild day in Racine. Bout 47deg. When it's foggy, it means no wind. So I loaded up my fixed gear bike in the truck.When I got to the park, it was starting to rain .I didn't care. The Pike river was overflowing it's banks again. Just as I left, the wind really picked up, blowing all the fog away.The cabbage fields were all flooded and in the ditches, 40oz bottles were floating everyware. The pickers throw them in the drainage pipe, then they come floating out. The rain turned to ice balls,then stopped. It sure was windy. It turned sunny out, and at the end of the ride a rainbow popped out. I found no gold.

Which park? Petrifying Springs?

1.25 inches of rain here so far, did 30 mins on the trainer.

I'd rather be shoveling 3 feet of snow than watch it pour outside.

Yes, at Pets. I think I'll go out again today. The trainer will have to wait until some snow lands.

I remember riding up that WALL there once upon a time. That's a chain breaker!

Pretty park.
