And, a Deputy I've seen around the Courthouses, but have never talked to came up to me this morning. He told me he was glad to see I rode today. He said it just seemed wrong seeing me walk in the last couple of days without my gear on. "Now the world is back to normal," he said. Wow, I didn't know my riding had cosmic consequences.
This was another one of those mornings when riding to work meant I didn't have to clean the frost off my windshield. If it wasn't so dangerous watching people trying to drive without cleaning the frost off their windows it would be rather humorous. As it was, it was just terrifyingly pathetic. One fellow in a pickup truck was weaving all over the road, but refused to stop and either clean his windshield or let the truck warmup enough to clear it of frost. Maybe I should start carrying some "You! out of the gene pool" buttons to hand out to those who are truly worthy of being recognized. Then again, maybe not...at least not while my escape vehicle is Billie.
And, this is for Coop.
I'm feeling better today, still not great, but much better.
- 25F/-4C and partly cloudy for the ride to work.
- 45F/7C and mostly cloudy for the home ride.
