Yesterday I came down with a bug. Heavy chest, coughing up phlegm, sore throat, stuffed up head, aches, etc. Not much fun.

This morning I woke up and still felt pretty lousy. Unfortunately school...

Consecutive work commute number 393.

Woke up at 4:15 to the cat freaking out. Turns out there was a neighbor's cat out on the prowl and it decided to park in front of our living room window, which...

37F this morning (yes, I wore shorts :) )

I had originally intended to get up early and tack on an extra 10 miles just for fun. At 6:15 my wife poked me and asked, "weren't you wanting to get up...

Moving pretty slow this morning. Was up late last night at a Here Comes The Mummies concert. I didn't drink a drop, but I'm now at the age where staying out past 10 PM makes me feel hung over.

Ahhh... then yes I can see the frustration. Fenders make an unbelievable difference in rain riding. Much more moisture gets sprayed up from your wheels than falls down from the sky. And what comes up...

That's what I figure. It's just water. As long as you have fenders, it's relatively clean water too.

As long as I have dry clothes to change into when I reach my destination then I don't get too...

27F this morning and our first hard freeze. I can tell I don't yet have my winter skin, as in three months this weather will feel balmy.

Rain is predicted starting Friday through the weekend. All...

Hello fall! 29F this morning. First sub-freezing commute since last spring made me want to dress warm. I resisted the urge to wear my balaclava and just went with a head band to protect my ears....

This morning I found a kayak paddle sitting all alone on the MUP. I left it there, seeing as I had no way to transport a kayak paddle, nor any need to own a kayak paddle.

53 degrees this morning, moderate headwind and rain. Took the hybrid with fenders and packed my work clothes in my waterproof pannier. All in all, it was a pretty easy commute.

Pretty good storm during the night. 60 mph winds, rain and a tornado spotted north of town. Apparently the sirens went off, but I slept right through it all.
