    Tomorrow looks nasty

    Just clicking around trying to psych myself up to actually ride in this storm tomorrow before work. Anyone else gonna hit it, if for no other reason than to spite those with zwift?

    It's been shitty around here since the beginning of August.
    Figuring this all out as I go!

    It certainly has. The past week leading up to this storm was one of the few windows of decent riding for the past 2-3 months.

    That's a fact. I rode HP yesterday and it was absolutely perfect. The summer has been so wet/hot/humid that everything is covered with algae so as soon as condensation or rain arrives everything gets greasy. Bridges especially.

    I'm hoping the traffic at the Wicked Ride tomorrow wears a lot of that away.

    1 to 2 more inches of rain tonight. Hooray.

    I rode my HP loop last night. Dry stretches of trail were safe to pedal but everything is covered with a mat of leaves sprinkled with downed branches and sticks. Here and there is a felled tree or two. As for water there is water draining where I've never seen it before and streams are filled to the brim. More rain expected today and again next week and unless something changes in a hurry the season might be over (for me).

    All is not lost. In just 8 short months it will be July again.
