It rained yesterday. Hard. I’m usually pretty skeptical of the weather forecasts, since it’s late in the season for rain here. So I rode my bike to work and was rewarded with a very wet ride home. The worst part of it had to be the ‘rooster tail’ of water coming off the front wheel that just happened to go exactly into my eyes. Yick.
This morning the forecast was for the rain to blow out during the day. I went outside and it wasn’t raining, and there was even a little blue showing through the clouds. So I got on my bike. I made it about a half-mile when the sky just opened up. I got totally soaked. Riding home in the rain isn’t too bad, since I can dry off when I get home. But riding in to work in the rain sucks. Sitting soaked all day in the office sucks. So I turned around and went home to get the car.
When I got in the car to drive in to work the rain had stopped and the sun came out. It’s a good thing I don’t believe in God. If I did, it would be really hard not to take this personally.
