Yes, I rode to work today.
When I went to bed the forecaster were saying 80% chance of rain today. By the time I woke up the chance was down to 50%. The radar looked clear as I started to gear up, but I didn't trust the look of the sky.
Since the temperature was in the low 60's Fahrenheit/mid-teens Celsius, it was a no brainer. I put on the rain gear. And, I didn't get rained on.
By the time I got to work the sun was trying to break through the clouds.
It did rain a little Downtown later in the morning.
When I left work in the middle of the afternoon. The rain was moving back into the area. The question: Would it stay to the north? It looked like it would. The sky looked okay, but I didn't trust the radar. I put the rain gear on again even though now the temperature was near 80F/27C. Needless to say, it was a toasty ride home.
|Heather thinks I should replace the seat cover. I think it is just getting character.|
And, I didn't get rained on...again.
But, shortly after I got home a thunderstorm went through, but since I was striped down cooling off, I wasn't dressed to even stand before the window to take a photo of the storm...nor was I willing to take a photo of myself proving my state of undress...not even a photo of my bare feet.
- 62F/17C and overcast for the ride to work.
- 79F/26C and mostly cloudy with rain in the area for the home ride.
