Irrigating the Sahara

In summer, I can make it rain anytime I like. Just by cleaning my bike, then going for a ride. What other talents do people on this board have? Are there any drought affected regions in the world you'd like me to visit?

We need rain, Chris.

But we don't need an Aussie who never stops riding!

If you can make it rain on command I am sure the state of California would give you a very high paying job. Of course most of our water comes from snow pack up in the mountains of Northern California. Does your bike make it snow at any specific location.?

It's never actually made it snow, but then, neither has anything else around here (with the possible exception of the last ice age). The rain thing only seems to work in summer too.

Chris,
I thought I was the only one with that super power. Within a day or two after I give my bike a good cleaning it almost always rains. Though I must admit, it did not rain this week despite Yorick's bath last Sunday and several threatening days!

It's waiting until you least expect it, or maybe it's saving up for a major downpour...
