Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

When I was working a rainy Saturday would upset me quite a bit. Retirement is the best job ever.
We got our first rain of the new season, this evening. Been since about November.

We have had a lot of rain in California this year. A lot for us, anyway. Last year we had double normal which is still not very much compared to some states.
The good news is most of the reservoirs are way up, some even full.

And, of course, today it was announced that our water rates will be going up.

Have a short (42 mile) gravel race Saturday about an hour away. Supposed to be 45ish and rainy. Going to do it anyway even though I’ve become a wuss.

Sacred cow territory. Careful. Everyone knows the school system can do no wrong.

In my opinion, we should not be celebrating foreign foods like poutine in these you-ninety-states.

In other news, the insurance co just paid out the price of a VERY nice bicycle for fiberglass damage I didn't know was there until we asked someone to fix the gelcoat. The area in question happens to have the forestay chainplate bolted through it, making it all the more interesting. I am not the greatest boat handler in wind and current, but I have no recollection of hitting a dock head-on, let alone with sufficient force to do that, and I wonder if it goes all the way back to the silly original owners, or even a defect in the layup. Anyway, the adjuster said crash damage and her word is good enough for me in this case. Fortunately, no claims in the last five years, so they won't raise our premium.

Vinyl lined or something else?

Don't see steel framed pools around here. Tell me more.
