Made Me Chuckle

Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

It wasn't supposed to rain today, but it sure looked like rain come lunchtime. I was in my usual place in the Subway across the Street from the Courthouse when two Deputies came in. One of them is a rider. "Did you ride today?" he asked me. Before I could respond the other Deputy piped up, "Did the sun come up this morning?" This made me chuckle. I guess I have a reputation.

I'd looked at radar before I left the Courthouse for lunch. The storms were mostly to our north and if we did get any rain, it appeared it would be long gone before it was time to ride home. I shared the information with the Deputies. "What's the matter didn't you bring raingear?" the non-rider Deputy asked. "Oh, I've got raingear, but that's not the point," the rider said.  He didn't clarify just what his point was, but I think the other deputy and both got it.

It did rain come mid afternoon.

And by homing time the streets were dry.

A heat advisory has been issued for tomorrow. Goodbye "Resort Weather".

  • 69F/20.5C and overcast for the ride to work.
  • 79F/26C and pretty cloudy for the home ride.


  1. I bet you got a chuckle out of the Did you ride? comment.

    Your commute temps sound lovely. We're heading into a 7 day heat wave in the 90's. Not supposed to be this warm in the mid-vally, sigh.

    1. The weather is so topsy turvy. According to our electric bill we are now ahead. This is when we should be way behind. Go figure.

      Sorry you're so steamy. It's not right.
