A Problem Developed

Yes, I rode to work today.

It was another rainy morning.

As usual on rainy days there were just two of us in the parking area. You can see the rear of M's Kawasaki.
This is Market Street looking toward the Arch. This is the street one must cross to get from the Carnahan Courthouse to the Civil Courthouse. Lucky me, I have a desk in both.
By lunch the rain had stopped and the streets were dry. There was even some sun in the afternoon.

On the ride in this morning a problem developed. I have a dual lens visor on my helmet. It keeps the visor from fogging up and it worked great all last season and up until today. Sadly, it seems to have developed an air leak and is fogging between the lens.To say I'm bummed would be a classic understatement.
Oh well, I rode in the cold before I got this helmet with the fancy schmancy visor. I will do it again.

By the way, there is a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for the area. My car just may get to go to work tomorrow.

  • 42F/6C and light rain for the ride to work.
  • 50F/10C, clear, and then dark by the time I got home.


  1. I love your photos here. I can hear the splish splash of cars...and scooters.

    1. Dom,
      The snow showed up as promised. Not much, but enough to keep the Symba in the garage. Apparently, the State now crews dropped the ball on this one and there is quite the controversy. Sometimes I wonder if we haven't become too good at clearing roads. Drivers just don't have a clue you can't go the speed limit when the roads are snow covered. Of course, it has to be the fault of someone else. That said, I do think MoDot handled this little snow poorly.

      Be safe. I'd have been on the roads if I had a sidecar.
