    Can't tell yet up here in the Bay Area. I do see tree leaves moving. I'll be able to tell in 3 hours on the evening ride.
    I'm in it to finish it.

    I am hoping this dies down before the Mulholland Century on Saturday. Could make a difficult day on the saddle more interesting. The forecast calls for high winds through Friday – let’s hope it is correct.

    Yes, and I hope it doesn't hit Hemet on Saturday. It would make that ride miserable (or interesting if you'd like ).

    Holy cow!!! I just got out of the gym and debris was flying everywhere!
    I was pelted by little rocks walking out to the parking lot. I hope it dies down by tomorrow morning... I was hoping to ride in the hills...

    (It wasn't too windy here only an hour ago... I was making plans with my riding buddies and it didn't even come up)

    Wind is kicking today (35+mph), been dodging falling and littered palm tree branches all over the place and there is a big brush fire in the Beverly Glen Area. My building switched over to generator power early this morning...spot power outages being reported throughout the city.

    Should make for interesting conditions under which to try out my new wheelset.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    We just drove in from Palm Springs. It's screaming out there with so much dust and blowing sand that visibility is reduced a bunch. It's almost like twilight. We bailed out of the pool because the sand was hurting our eyes when we sat around. On the return trip, I put my bike in the back of the van instead of the rack because I didn't want all the grit in the gears or having my frame paint sandblasted.

    We hit rain on the way home for quite a while through San Bernardino.

    Here in Agoura, the wind is sitting down finally and only comes in gusts.

    It's starting to mellow out here in the South Bay. Still very breezy, but no more tree-topplers.

    Hey, looks like there are 3 of us who work in Orange.
    Maybe we can get an afterwork ride together someday soon.
    Any ideas?
