Yes, I rode to work today.

On my way out of the building to get lunch I walked passed one of the sometime Harley riders. He was catching a smoke. "Isn't this weather remarkable?" I asked.

"Yeah," he said, "Did you gamble today?"

I had no idea what he was talking about, "Gamble?"

"Did you gamble on the rain holding off and ride today?" then he added, "I decided not to."

"I thought there was more of a chance for it raining tomorrow than today," I replied.

"Really? I looked at the forecast and thought it looked better tomorrow."

"Well, I rode today," I said, "And, I'll be riding tomorrow, too. I've got rain gear."

The sky was full of clouds today.
It didn't rain today. It was a gorgeous day, gorgeous all day long. I guess if I'd been gambling I would have won. As it was, I rode to work today just like I have all but three times this year. That's a winner if you ask me, gamble or no gamble.

Tonight I did my first after work inline skate. It was only 40minutes. I skated 6.6mi/10.6km. Not too bad for this early in the season.
  • 62F/17C and clear for the ride to work.
  • 85F/29C with a sky full of billowing white clouds for the ride home

  1. Another beautiful cloud photo. We are not having any lovely storm clouds- yet. When it rains it is just from a flat grey sky. But soon we will be getting those warmer fat cumulonimbus!
