Back Then I Might Not Of Got It Either

Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

It started out gray again. There was a fine mist in the air. It was just enough to show up on my visor but not enough to get me wet. It was another one of those mornings when I hungered for more miles.

Speaking of miles, a deputy asked me this morning how long was my commute. I told him it was a little over 9mi/14km to work and about 15mi/24km home. When he asked how come there was a difference in the two lengths I figured it best to simply say, "I go home a different way." I suspected if he had to ask he probably wouldn't understand my answer. However, it does once again point to the difference between when I commuted by car and now. Back then I might not of got it either.

We had a visitor in the parking area today. When I went out for my walk during my morning break I noticed him. Notice the weather lightening up. By lunch time it was a much lighter shade of gray then in the morning.

By evening there was a glimpse of light blue.

But there were still lots of clouds and the sun was playing peek-a-boo.

  • 72F/22C and gray for the ride to work.
  • 80F/27C with plenty of clouds for the home ride.


  1. Your morning temperatures are much warmers than our 50-55 degrees.

    The differences in morning and evening commute I liken to needing to be at work by a certain time so you take a bit more direct route and on the way home there is not so much a time constraint and you can take a more enjoyable path of travel.

    1. The temperatures have been very mild this summer. I'm grateful.

      And, your take on the afternoon ride vs the morning is like mine. I don't have to be home at a certain time and can play. It's the concept of commuting being fun that I suspect would have been lost on Deputy Vern.

      Thanks for being so faithful with your comments. I appreciate it.
