I just woke up after falling asleep on the couch after dinner...that was one tough commute home tonite. It felt like a long uphill climb the whole way home.
Rain starting to fall, winds increasing in strength while heading east from Bellevue. Spent most of my time hunkered down on the drops fighting headwinds constantly working to keep my line as gusts tried to push me into the street or off into the ditch. I chose a route that kept me off the busiest stretches so I took the Lake Alice road for example. Trees creaking, looking up watching out for falling branches made me forget about how steep the climb was but that (in my mind anyways) was better than getting blown into a car on hwy 202. Big raindrops started to pelt me on the snoqualmie ridge driven by wind so it felt like hail. I was soaked and tired when I finally got to my home in North Bend. Hopefully, since this stormfront came in a little quicker than expected, it'll blow out before the morning commute tomorrow. I'd sure like to get thru May with an unbroken streak of bike commutes.
