Who Knows?

Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

Many of my co-workers were commenting today on how much I really must love riding in this weather. They are right. When I mention to them how sparse the motorcycles and scooters were in the parking area again today they are as surprised as I am. This was the first week of school here. Perhaps some of the riders have found themselves with transportation duties. Who knows? I know I've really enjoyed the temperatures and the skies this week.

The drivers on the other hand have not been so enjoyable. Every year during the first couple of weeks of school things go crazy. I'm guessing new schedules lead to rushing and rushing leads to people doing crazy things. It has always settled down as folks get used to their new routines. I hope it does so sooner rather than later.

For the next while I'm going to "talk" my way through my rides to increase my level of awareness. I trust this chaos will soon pass.

  • 59F/15C , clear and calm for the ride to work.
  • 76F/24C with wonderful backlit clouds for the ride home.


  1. You managed to hit on a pet peeve of mine and that is parents driving all crazy racing to school instead of letting their kids ride the bus. I am continually amazed at the line ups of SUVs at school dropping off kids and the almost empty school buses still driving their routes.

    Sigh. I guess things aren't what they used to be and are ever changing.

    1. Yep, things aren't what they used to be. But, then again, perhaps they never were :)
