I couldn't inflate my tires, the compressor didn't work.

The reduced temperature & enhanced precipitation increased my ohms such that I was unable to generate any watts on Sunday.

The power went out 2x for a few seconds...just enough for everybody to look up from their TV or phone for a few seconds.

I rode when I thought the gale force winds had died down. They were still blowing down in MDR. Not much fun and I avoided the beach path like the plague. The beach paths are still covered in sand a week later.
