Evil death wind!

The ride home was really windy. The first leg was straight into the headwind, in rush-hour traffic on Strang Line Road, which is the road I was on when I got in the accident a few weeks ago. I was strong and as fast as I could be going into the wind like I was. Yesterday's riding had me a little tired this morning, but I felt pretty good on my way home.

The skies were bulging with storms, but it stayed dry and windy for the whole return trip. The middle of my route provided a diabolical crosswind on the 127th street viaduct, but the last leg was with the wind, and I was scooting right along!

Right now, as I type this, there's rain, thunder and lightning outside. There's a flash flood warning in my county, and from the look of the radar, stuff just keeps building southwest of us. I'm in for a messy commute tomorrow morning.

My wife is at Olathe Medical Center for a sleep study tonight. She had good news on her lung function test, and the effects of her lung disease are fading. They're checking her out for sleep apnea and other sleep disorders tonight. Normally, she'd just be getting home about now, but I'm going to go to bed soon so I can try to weasel in 7 hours or so of sleep, which is about twice my usual nightly average.
