Didn't Miss the Rain

Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

I didn't miss the rain this morning, but I did miss the thunderstorms that rolled through shortly before I left.

And . . .

It was clear for the ride home. It was breezy, but not as windy as they had predicted.

  • 67F/19C with a steady rain for the ride to work.
  • 83F/28C and cloudy, but plenty of sunshine for the home ride.

All Red

Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

All red in the Parking Area today.

It was a dry ride to work. I didn't expect to be so lucky in the evening.

Today was the first time the Red Fox went to work this year. She has less than a hundred and fifty miles on the clock for the year. I'm hoping to remedy that.

There were powerful storms in the vicinity once again today.

And, once again to my surprise the storms stayed where I was not.

Tomorrow looks like another cat and mouse game. It's all about luck - 70% chance of storms means 30% not. Wind is in the forecast, too, with gusts as high as 30mph. Don't like that, but we'll see.

  • 65F/18C and mostly cloudy for the ride to work.
  • 75F/24C and partly cloudy for the home ride.

Not An Unusual Spring Day

Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

The day began with fog and mist. It was wonderful. It even occurred to me it would be nice to just keep riding.

But . . .

By 10 o'clock it was difficult to tell whether it was PM or AM.  The rains hit in earnest not long after. By lunchtime it was back to being overcast and a sprinkle or two.

By home ride time it had cleared off nicely.

After I got home I took the Red Fox out for a brief ride and to rearrange the garage a little. I'm thinking it's probably time to let the Kymco go to work some.

  • 62F/17C with fog and mist for the ride to work.
  • 69F/20.5C with some clouds but plenty of sunshine for the ride home and beyond.

Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

I haven't missed a day since my last post.

And . . .

I've been seeking balance, experimenting with what I need to let go of in my living and what is extra. Commuting to work is a vital practice for me. Being physically active is also vital. Heather time is vital. What comes after these? How can the dance of my life be more graceful?

The trees are loaded with blossoms. I keep waiting for a good Spring storm to come along and bring the blossoms down, but so far the blossoms have been allowed to fall as the trees let them go.

I hope this most current personal "letting go" time with be as gentle.

  • 56F/13C and overcast for the ride to work.
  • 67F/19C and mostly cloudy for the home ride.
