Perhaps I Imagined It

Yes, I rode to work today.

During the ride to work it got very dark. The forecast was not predicting rain. Still it seemed prudent to stop and put on my rain jacket. None of the riders I passed were wearing rain gear. Perhaps I imagined it, but they looked really nervous and seemed to be preoccupied with the dark ominous cloud rising in the north west.

It did sprinkle some on the ride in, but the rain pretty much held off in our area until after drive time. There were a couple flashes of lightning with near simultaneous claps of thunder. That was exciting. I'm guessing north and east of us some folk got wet.

The ride home was totally drama free--a good way to begin the weekend.

  • 68F/20C with some thunder and light rain for the ride to work.
  • 85F/29C and cloudy for the ride home.


  1. Sometimes there's a sick satisfaction in riding on the weather edge...

    Glad it was a good start to the weekend.

    Go Rain!

    1. I know there is a satisfaction in riding on the weather edge. Sick? Perhaps.

      There is also a satisfaction in being prepared. I've been in the position I imagine those other riders I saw were. They decided to ride based on the weather report, but didn't take the raingear with just in case. I very seldom make that mistake now.

      Thanks for stopping by, for reading, and for commenting. It is much appreciated.
