Kicking myself

When I woke up this morning, there were a few really convincing reasons not to ride my bike to the bus stop. I drove to the bus stop instead of driving downtown, but still...

First, rain was in the forecast. A look outside verified that it had not in fact rained, but the sky was somewhat ominous.

Next, my wife really wanted me to go straight to the movie theater after I got off work. This isn't a big deal, it's less than half a mile from the bus stop, but I didn't feel like showing up to the movies in sopping wet clothes.

Well, it was really nice and clear out today. Not so much as a sprinkle on my way to work. If it rained while I was working, I totally missed it and it must have dried up before I got out. This would have been an awesome day to be on my bike. To top it off, the movie that my wife wanted to check out doesn't actually come out this weekend, so I didn't go to the theater. I went straight home.

This is lame, and I'm pretty sad that I missed out on a really nice ride.

Yep, you missed a nice one. Boy, it rained overnight though; looks like it's going to keep it up today too which messes up our plans. My 19 year old came home this weekend and wanted to do another ride...

One thing I'm thankful for is that the heavy rain in the middle of the night must have washed off some of the left over salt and sand. I hope.

I'll bet the guy who invented tomorrow was a bike rider who missed a day. *>)

I feel your pain! Usually when the weather is nice I cyclocommute to my "fun" weekend job. This morning it was looking forbidding so I drove. Then around noon the clouds cleared out and it would up being an awesome day.
